New Pulp Master: Sophie Littlefield

I've had the pleasure of publishing Ms. Littlefield at BTAP twice now, one link is below and the other story, "Fangataufa," is in the BEAT to a PULP: Round One anthology. Ms. Littlefield's A Bad Day for Sorry has elicited numerous favorable reviews. Oline Cogdill writing in the South Florida Sun Sentinel says, "Littlefield's exciting debut should be the start of an even more exciting series." Kirkus Reviews writes, "First-timer Littlefield creates characters with just the right quirks who charm..." I couldn't agree more, Sophie rocks!

Sophie pretty much dominated Thuglit. That's saying a lot. Those editors were very, very picky. She must have an entire drawer filled with Thuglit t-shirts!

Wow, I'm...crazy honored. I have plenty of doubts about my work every day, but i have always felt like my short stuff was where i came closer to doing what I set out to do. There are so many amazing writers in the 'zines and it kills me every time we lose one. anyway thanks, truly.

AC, Agreed. Some of the earliest stories I remember reading in Thug belonged to her and Kieran Shea. I was always glad to see their names in the contents.

Sophie, Yeah, I hated to see Thuglit fold but something tells me they will be back. Thanks for stopping by and hope all is going well with your current writing endeavors.

Austin, Ha. So true.
