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.

Spreading the Love

When David V. Stewart put out a call to donate works to a free anthology of stories to distract people from the current Big Hoopty, I jumped at the chance.  It’s not often you get the opportunity to offer some … Continue reading

Corona(4)Chan

This smells like an op. A number of calls for this flitted through the haze of social media earlier this week.  Most of them coming from exactly the sort of people who love to burnish their “one of the good … Continue reading

Panfilov’s 28

My discursion into Russian cinema in search of a high-T alternative to Hollywood’s low-T offerings has had mixed results. The Guardians is Moscowood’s answer to the Avengers by way of a plot reminiscent of an Asylum film without the cheeky … Continue reading
