Storyhack Action & Adventure Issue #0 has been out for about a week. If you haven’t read it yet, stop what you are doing and pick it up. My story, A Tiger in the Garden, is the cover story. It’s an action-packed Musket & Magic story taking place in a far off fantasy jungle colony. The other stories are equally great, detective werewolves, ex-military vigilantes, and a Sword and Sorcery story about a reanimated Goliath.
Pick up Issue #0 for free here in whatever digital format you prefer. If you enjoy the stories, please take the time to write a review on Amazon and on Goodreads. Reviews are critical, especially for independent publications and new writers.
Most importantly, please support the Kickstarter. The idea behind it is that Issue #0 is a proof of concept, illustrating the direction and potential for an ongoing magazine. So if you want more awesome action and adventure throw a few bucks towards the Kickstarter and support the Pulp Revolution.
Bryce Beattie just revealed the cover for Action & Adventure 0 and it looks fantastic. I’m excited to be part of this project and honored to be in the inaugural issue. There is a lot of love and effort being put into this project and from everything I have seen so far it really seems to be paying off.
For those of you not familiar with this project, StoryHack Action & Adventure is Bryce Beattie’s answer to the Pulp Revolution. Instead of lamenting the fact that the large magazines ignored tales of action and adventure, and looked down on sword & sorcery, he decided to start his own project.
This is the future of SFF publishing, fast, raw, and honest. Written and distributed by writers and editors who love the genre and whose only goal is to entertain. This is 1973, the internet is CBGB, and punk rock is right around the corner. Hop on and hold on tight because this is going to be a crazy ride through a brand new word.
It’s finally official, my Musket and Magic story A Tiger in the Garden will be in issue 0 of Storyhack Action & Adventure!
I am beyond humbled and happy that I get to debut my first story in such a fantastic way. Bryce Beattie exemplifies the Pulp Independent Aesthetic. He said fuck it, I’m starting a magazine that features the kind of stories I love, and actually went ahead and did it.
The Pulp Revolution is growing, becoming an unstoppable force. Every week a new anthology, magazine, or independent work gets published, while social media is chock full of fascinating genre discussion. For the first time in forever, I’m energized and motivated to read and write, trying my best to keep up with each requested submission. It is a great time for SFF!
I’m excited to be a small part of this movement, and I hope my contribution is up to par. It’s honestly humbling debuting my first piece next to great writers like Jon Mollison and the others that will make up Storyhack 0.
Stay tuned, once more information about this issue comes out I will let everyone know. Now on to finishing my pieces for all the other submissions I intend to make.
