Pulp Ink at Criminal-E

Over at Criminal-E, Allan Guthrie has posted the openings to every story from Pulp Ink.

A lot of good ones there. Paul Brazill's is one of my favorites, as he brings his trademark sense of humor to his Peter Ord story, "The Lady & the Gimp."

Ron Brown on Pulp Ink

One of my new favorite blogs is Ron Brown's Criminal Thoughts. It's (mostly) reviews of the form I love -- the short story. He possesses a unique and engaging style. His output is simply ridiculous yet he gives every story careful consideration. 

Check out what he has to say about Pulp Ink over at his blog.

Free Stuff!

We're like a mall food court restaurant -- giving out free samples.

This includes Reed Farrel Coleman and (most of) Jodi MacArthur's story. Check it out at Smashwords.

AND Naomi Johnson is giving away three freebies at her awesome blog, Drowning Machine.

Julie Morrigan on Pulp Ink

Get Pulp Ink from Amazon and Smashwords.

"Pulp Ink is a gutsy, gritty collection of twenty-four twisted tales from some of the finest crime writers around.

Told with attitude, passion, and panache, these are stories about the morally ambiguous seedy underbelly of modern living, featuring hitmen, thieves, rapists, psychopaths, murderers and whores. From the first - Reed Farrel Coleman’s brilliantly brutal Requiem for a Spider, to the last - Matt Lavin’s unsavoury, unsettling The Only One Who Could Ever Reach Me, every story in this collection is a gem: multi-faceted, perfectly cut, and polished to perfection.

Pulp Ink may explore familiar territory: revenge, lust, greed, murder, betrayal and downright stupidity, but it does so unflinchingly and in its own indomitable style. Whether the sharp, dry northern noir of Paul D. Brazill or the sensual and deadly dark lyricism of Richard Godwin, the violent Old Testament-style retribution of AJ Hayes or Matthew C Funk’s bloody tale of perverse family ties, every one of these stories punches its weight.

Pulp Ink shines a light on the side of life we choose to ignore.

This is one of the best collections of short fiction you will ever see. Grab it now: Pulp Ink is ready to thrill, chill and entertain in ways you never thought possible." -- Julie Morrigan, author of the short story collection GONE BAD and the novel CONVICTIONS

Welcome to the place for all things Pulp Ink...

So very soon, the crime fiction anthology PULP INK will be unleashed upon the world in a flurry of madness and ill-advised debauchery... run, run for your lives!

This collection includes twenty-four stories by some of crime fiction's best writers made for fans of the darker side of the genre 

Here's what people are saying about it:

"Tongue-piercings. Foot-fetishists. Murderous cinephiles. This gritty, grimy, giddy collection is as pulpy as they come, transcending the Tarantino reference material and stepping into its own. All because of a stable of home-run crime writers who know just what the hell they're doing." -- Chuck Wendig, author of DOUBLE DEAD and BLACKBIRDS, and dispenser of dubious writing wisdom at  

"The writers of PULP INK were raised on Tarantino, but then went and rebelled on him like all good children do at some point. Here's the future of pulp fiction, a slice of the good stuff from those surviving the brutal sandbox of modern crime fiction and emerging, scraped and bruised, to turn around and spit in its eye." -- Anthony Neil Smith, author of HOGDOGGIN’ and YELLOW MEDICINE
