The Backlog – Fat and Happy

The  year of our Lord 2017 was a banner year for the #PulpRev crowd.  In addition to picking up a lot of new talent, and a lot of established talent, the Bad Kids Table in the sci-fi cafeteria produced more great content than one man could possibly read.  After a nearly decade long dry spell, my personal backlog continues to grow – both in novels and short story collection form.

Moving in to 2018 I’ve got a list that looks like this:

And that’s just what’s out right now.  We’re going to see all of these authors drop more books in 2018, and we haven’t even gotten to the Magazines:

  • A couple of Cirsova, naturally
  • A couple of StoryHack, for obvious reasons
  • Maybe even a Broadswords and Blasters issue.  I’ve been remiss in not giving them a shot.  They edge a little too close to being ashamed of liking the bad old authors that I love, but we’ve bounced ideas around on Twitter, and they seem like a good crew.

I’m missing a few, I know it.  There’s just too much good stuff out there to remember it all in one sitting, and together we’re going to have a great time exploring and discussing all of it.

Here’s hoping your 2018 is as jam packed with great reading as mine is shaping up to be!

About Jon Mollison

Jon Mollison was weaned at the literary knee of Tolkein, Howard, Moore, and Burroughs. He spent decades wandering in the wilderness of modern genre fiction, wondering when the magic and wonder went out of the world of dragons and space ships. In his darkest hour, he encountered a wise man who handed him the open secrets to crafting works that emulate the stories of the great authors who built the genre. They are easily summarized in but two words: Regress Harder. Now one of the twelve champions of the Pulp Revolution, his self-published works represent a more direct lineage to the tales of action, mystery, romance, virtue, and pure unalloyed adventure than the bland imitations churned out by New York City publishing houses in recent decades.
