BEAT to a PULP Print Anthology Deadline

We are thrilled to have a line-up of stellar contributors for our upcoming anthology provisionally titled BEAT to a PULP: Round 1. Charles Ardai, James Reasoner, Paul S. Powers, Bill Crider, Sophie Littlefield, Patricia Abbott, Robert J. Randisi and more have gifted us with content. Of course we also have works from emerging talent, some of whom will be debuting in print for the first time alongside the luminous and legendary.

SUBMISSIONS ARE STILL OPEN UNTIL JANUARY 31ST. There are still a handful of slots left. We could use a good pirate yarn or an Indiana Jones style adventure. So polish those shorts up and send them in. And remember, even if your story doesn’t make the anthology, it also has a chance at the BTAP e-zine. Let us hear from you!

A hell of a lineup, David, and well-deserved. I'm always impressed with the quality of stories y'all put out, and I've no doubt this anthology will kick all kinds of ass.

I'm thrilled that my grandfather's story will be alongside such prestigious writers.

Chris, still a lot of work to do but in terms of content, it doesn't get any better.

Laurie, I keep looking at his name going that's super cool.

How about a Hard-boiled pirate story? Waterworld meets Goodfellas, perhaps? (And congrats on the anthology, BTW. It's a hell of a line-up you've got there)

David Cranmer said...

Paul, I always love to read your stuff. "The Tut" remains one of our most popular stories we published and the last time I checked has received the most comments.

Keith, Hard-boiled pirate story sound bueno.

Is there a special email address to send to?

David Cranmer said...

Just send to the address on the BTAP site but label the e-mail header Anthology Submission to make it easier for elves.

I think I'll take a shot at getting something in as well -- seems like an awesome thing to be a part of. It's also great to see BTaP taken "to the next level" like this too. Congrats all around!

David Cranmer said...

Thanks.

And send it in. I'm looking forward to taking a gander.
