A week in pulp

Last week seemed to have so much news, it was easy to lose track of it.

Hopefully I haven't missed anything. Let me know if I have.

Firstly, Trestle Press released Luca Veste's Liverpool 5. A collection of short stories, with Liverpool themes. Liverpool 5 Oxford United 6 would have been my preferred title, but hey we can all dream (and we've not done much but dream for a long time.) Anyway, Liverpool 5 was quickly outselling Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie and some bloke called Stephen King on Amazon. Get yourself a copy here.

Julie Morrigan outdid everyone by releasing two books in just over a week. Heartbreaker is her latest novel about the gritty face of rock and roll we all dream of but never see. This book is also responsible for me attempting to sing like Robert Plant whenever I see the title written down.

Also by Julie is another short story collection, The Writing on the Wall. On the back of Julie's first short story collection (and by first ever e-book purchase) Gone Bad, The Writing on the Wall is a collection of six stories plus a bonus by Steven Miscandlon.

Paul Brazil proved again he's here, he's there, he's eveywhere by being not only on the radio but also gave details on his blog of an anthology series to be coming soon by Trestle Press.

Ian Ayris got the first copy of his forthcoming book and showed us the cover Abide With Me

R Thomas Brown gave us Mayhem - A collection of crime stories written in his own unique style.

One thing's for sure, I'm going to have to buy me a kindle.

Not only that, but some fantastic stories up on blogs and ezines

The Gift by AJ Hayes at Yellow Mama

Anonymous-9 at the Flash Fiction Offensive

And Matthew C. Funk at Shotgun Honey

Quite a week.
