Pro Se Productions, an independent Publisher of Genre Fiction and one of the founding members of what is known as The New Pulp Movement, renews a call for submissions to a book in its PULPSTUDIES line. Announced in 2013, WHAT IS NEW PULP? is to feature articles, essays, and other related material as submitted by interested authors, researchers, and fans that discuss, analyze, and even debate what the term NEW PULP means as it relates to Pulp Fiction, how to define it, and even if such a term is necessary.
“New Pulp,” says Tommy Hancock, Partner in and Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is a term and topic that has stirred up quite a discussion for the last few years, particularly the last four or so. Some call it a genre, others call it a style, some say it doesn’t exist, still others see it as a travesty against Classic Pulp. Regardless of your viewpoint, we are inviting writers to submit articles and essays on the subject from any angle they wish to tackle it for this collection. We don’t expect this book to end the internet arguments or solve the mystery about New Pulp. We just know that the discussion is not only worth having, but worth preserving and sharing with others.”
Submissions to WHAT IS NEW PULP have no length restrictions and will be reviewed for inclusion in the collection by Pro Se Staff. Authors wishing to submit are encouraged to provide articles founded in analysis and research rather than simple emotion, but all submitted articles will be considered. Deadline for proposals and/or submissions is July 1, 2014. If enough articles have not been accepted by that point, then this collection will be cancelled and all work submitted for it thus far will be returned to the appropriate authors.
