This is a holiday week in the US so expect a lot of lazy bloggers.

Independence Day is this Friday!! That means a long weekend, BBQs, and cold brewskies.

I should still have the weekly Killer Campaign post up this Friday despite the festivities, so don't stay away.


Spacesuits and Sixguns

Spacesuits and Sixguns is a magazine of contemporary pulp fiction – simple, straightforward storytelling with an emphasis on action. We’re not looking for Lovecraft or Howard pastiches, or stories set in the 1930’s. Read a dozen pulp fiction stories, soak it all up, then ask yourself: what if this happened in my hometown today. All genres accepted -- detective, horror, mystery, adventure, SF, sword and sorcery. We love them all. Give us about 4000 words. Shorter is fine. We're flexible. If it’s longer and it's good, no problem. Rule number one - be fun!

Payment is 3 cents a word/$100 max for fiction
