Pulp Revolution Spinner Rack III

Something happened.

Those days when you’d go look for some science fiction and fantasy and struggle to find something good or different or old school… they’re over. Those days when you’d sift through a shelf of books always with the same dozen or so authors that are in all the big chain stores everywhere…? Those are gone too.

Between the hoopla surrounding the Sad Puppies campaigns, the debut of Cirsova magazine this year, and the proliferation of top notch book blogs in recent months, something of a critical mass has been reached. There are more authors turning up now than any of us can keep up with. And these are not the sort of people that would have risen to the top under the old regime. Far from it.

There is a wave coming. And it’s going to change everything. The authors that created the works below are the ones that are going to make it happen.

    Hey, I’m reading the Invisible City right now. It starts with a WWI guy falling out of WWI and into a strange new world.

    It’s a very good trope, Brent.

    Are you saying my prophecy came true, before it could even be published?

    Darn it.

      Watch the volume of output. Not just the number of ebooks, but the depth and breadth of the short fiction. The lack of Dragon awards for short fiction is a strategic error.

      (And I hope I didn’t steal your thunder here…!)

    And let me just add to Jeffro’s observation here. Without Jeffro, I’d never have discovered three-quarters of the books that I read today, but no one person can keep up with all this stuff.

    If you like talking about books…talk about books. Set up a blog, cross post reviews to Amazon. Let us all know about it, so we can tell you how right (or wrong) you are about the latest Pulp Revolution writer. Jibber-jabber about these books on Gab. You don’t have to have Nathan Housely or Frisky Pagan levels of erudition – you just have to bring your own unique view to the works so we can see them through your eyes.

    Get in now, because in five years when this stuff is all the rage, the early entrists are going to have a leg-up on all the Johnny-come-latelies.
