First, to business. There's just a few more days until we hit the deadline for outlines for Amazing Alternity Stories, so if you haven't thought of a concept yet, do get cracking.

And word has reached us that Joel Jenkins has started work on the fourth Dire Planet novel (more on that later), and Derrick Ferguson nears completion of the second Dillon novel (also, more later). So good news all around, eh?

Right. Good. On to the show. We have a treat for you this week, as we've got a sneak peek at Joel Jenkins' The Nuclear Suitcase, soon to be released. So head over to the PWP blog for a look see.

And just as a reminder...our message board is up and running, so feel free to stop in and say hi or start a discussion on any of our fine titles!

Finally, if you've got the time, spread the word about PWP to your friends!

Big update today folks! First off, the submissions period for AMAZING ALTERNITY STORIES has ended, and quite frankly, we couldn't be happier with the selection of pseudo-psycho-histories that we got; so, look forward to seeing a TOC and a cover in the far-flung future!

Next up, Joel Jenkins' THE NUCLEAR SUITCASE is available now in our very own store, as well as on Amazon, so get buying folks. If you need some incentive, feel free to check out the sneak preview we posted earlier!

Speaking of new releases, we've got another one coming down the pipe, namely DILLON AND THE LEGEND OF THE GOLDEN BELL! If you'd like a taste of Derrick Ferguson's newest action-adventure offering, check out the first chapter for free on the Dillon page! If you liked Dillon and the Voice of Odin, you'll love Dillon and the Legend of The Golden Bell!

And on the subject of Mr. Ferguson, we have a new entry in the ever entertaining Movie Review Notebook for you-this time, Derrick gives you his opinion on SURROGATES, starring Bruce Willis!

And just as a reminder...our message board is up and running, so feel free to stop in and say hi or start a discussion on any of our fine titles!

Woot! Can't wait. I Loved the Voice of Odin so I'll probably super love Golden Bell.

Just a short update today, folks. DILLON AND THE LEGEND OF THE GOLDEN BELL is in the hands of our dedicated staff of editors as we write this, and is only awaiting a final revision before it hits the electronic stands. HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD awaits only a final bit of art to get it moving towards the printers. It looks like our final two releases of 2009 will be out in time for Christmas!

Next up, we've got a new review of an old film by Derrick Ferguson, as he looks at THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP in the newest installment of the Movie Review Notebook, so get over there and give that a look.

And remember that we've got the first chapters of a number of our releases available for you to look at on-site, so be sure to stop by when you've got time to give them a read!

Go check it out via the link at our blog, then go give a look towards our-brothers-in-pulp, Airship 27, who have a slew of new releases to whet the appetite of even the most reticent pulp-fan...

Also, PWP is proud to reveal that we now have a wholesale program for booksellers, so interested parties should e-mail us at argus33 at hotmail dot com or jenkins at tgi dot net for further information.

Be sure to come back in a few weeks when we'll have a preview of our new anthology, How The West Was Weird, for you to peruse, as well as more information on upcoming releases!

Well, the year is drawing to a close and we managed to get...what? One book out? Still, we're new to this whole thing, and we like to think that what we lack in know-how is made up for by our winning smiles and dashing good looks. Bit disappointing though, right?

Here's the deal: We have both HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD and DILLON AND THE LEGEND OF THE GOLDEN BELL nearly ready to go. But nearly only counts in horseshoes and hand-grenades, so, rather than risk unleashing inferior product on society, we've decided to push back the release dates for both books until after the beginning of the new year.

But, as an early Thanksgiving treat/Christmas present, we've got an exclusive glimpse of How The West Was Weird for you over on our PulpWork Press Presents page, if you're interested. Titled "Camazotz", it's by Joshua Reynolds (the writer, not the painter), and concerns bats, mummies and unpleasant doings. Just right for the holidays!

And be sure to check back later when we'll have a rough-n-ready production schedule for the coming year, a new movie review in the Movie Review Notebook and possibly more freebies!

Oh, and just as a reminder...our message board is up and running, so feel free to stop in and say hi or start a discussion on any of our fine titles!

Then, while you're here, why not check out our variety of available titles? We've got sneak peeks of next year's releases Dillon and the Legend of the Golden Bell, and How The West Was Weird!

Get reading...oh, and Happy Thanksgiving for those of our readers in the US of A!

Christmas is coming, so why not do some of your holiday shopping with us? PulpWork Press titles are available from both Amazon and Fictionwise. You can also buy them direct from us, courtesy of our very own PWP store!

But if you're not sure about slapping down your hard-earned cash on one of our elegant, hand-crafted works of fictive genius, why not take a moment to peruse the variety of free offerings available on the website? We have the first chapters from several books, including the newly released NUCLEAR SUITCASE, by Joel Jenkins, on our site, as well as the first story in our 2010 anthology, HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD, edited by Russ Anderson!

And if that's not enough, why not check out the newest entry in Derrick Ferguson's Movie Review Notebook, as he tells you why you probably need to see Nimrod Antal's ARMORED!

It's here! Dillon and the Legend of the Golden Bell has arrived in our store and on Amazon with an e-book release to follow in February! But that's not all! Starting this week, we'll take the book on a whirlwind blog tour as we travel from the PulpWork offices to the sands of Mars and beyond. And there' s still time to get in on the act, if you're interested! Just contact us at pulpworkpress at hotmail dot com!

When old enemies and an emissary from a far country rudely interrupt Dillon's vacation, he discovers that an old friend has managed to embroil him in a brewing civil war of the island nation of Xonira. The Lord Chancellor of Xonira figures he can unite the enemy factions if he recovers the ancient artifact called the Golden Bell and so he hires Dillon and Eli to recover it from the haunted vaults of the sealed Blagdasen Citadel. But what good can come from unearthing an artifact forged in blood? And what of the ancient forces of evil guarding it? The author of THE NUCLEAR SUITCASE, Joel Jenkins, describes Dillon and the Legend of the Golden Bell as "James Bond meets Cthulhu" and you'll want to check out this heady mixture of the spy thriller and horror genres.

Interested in getting a preview of the book? Head over to our custom Dillon page for previews of both Dillon and the Legend of the Golden Bell AND the first book in the series, Dillon and the Voice of Odin (also available on Amazon!)!. And in the coming months, look for previews of the THIRD in the series (coming in 2011), DILLON AND THE PIRATES OF XONIRA!

Now for the station identification...

Just tried to grab it but I think I'll wait until How the West Was Weird is ready so I only pay shipping once. Psyched for it though. Voice of Odin was dope and this one seems more up my alley.

You won't have to wait long. HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD drops in a couple of weeks. I've got a Sebastian Red story in that one. It might be one you've read already, tho. And Tom has a story in there as well.

On March 1, the history books get a lot more interesting...

Aztec vampires gorge themselves on a small Mexican village. A masked hero of the 1940s stumbles onto a town that time forgot. A gunslinging exorcist works to save a boy from demonic possession. These are the stories of the American West your history teacher never told you about... because she was scared!

Edited by Russ Anderson and published by Pulpwork Press (www.pulpworkpress.com), HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD is an anthology featuring nine original, genre-mashing stories of cowboys, Indians, aliens, exorcists, and tentacled horrors from other worlds... all wrapped in an original cover by Jim Rugg (STREET ANGEL, AFRODISIAC).

Those stories? Glad you asked, pardner.

Camazotz, by Josh Reynolds (available as a free preview at the Pulpwork Press website)

Wyrm Over Diablo, by Joel Jenkins

Space Miners, by Ian Taylor

Don Cuevo's Curative, by Thomas Deja

The Town With No Name, by Mike McGee and Chris Munn

Sins of the Past, by Barry Reese

You Need to Know What's Coming, by Ian Mileham

Of All the Plagues a Lover Bears, by Derrick Ferguson

Out South of Borachon Creek, by Bill Kte'pi

Cover price is $11.95 - that's peanuts for this kind of entertainin'.

HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD will be available for order on Pulpwork and Amazon on March 1. But if you'd like to get a jump on everyone else, it's available for pre-order right now on the Pulpwork Press website. Order before March 1 and get free shipping in the US!

But before you listen, a word of explanation:

This interview was supposed to be about both "Dillon And The Voice of Odin" and "Dillon And The Legend of The Golden Bell" with the emphasis being on the latter. But at the time of the scheduled recording Ric Croxton had only read "Voice of Odin" and his co-host was unavailable. So we decided to go ahead and talk about "Voice of Odin" and we'll be doing another episode to be recorded on the 25th of this month where we'll talk about "Legend of the Golden Bell" And naturally when that episode is available I'll let you know.

Sound good? Good. Then get to clickin' and I'll talk to you later.

Mike Exner III continues the HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD blog tour by reviewing the first three stories in the book. Even if you don't have your own copy yet, you can read the first story, Josh Reynolds' "Camazotz", for free at the Pulpwork Press site. Then check out Mike's blog and see if you agree with his assessment.

Mike is planning to continue posting reviews until he's worked his way through all 9 stories in the book. So be sure to keep checking his blog for more HTWWW goodness, even as the blog tour baton is passed to someone else tomorrow.

HOW THE WEST WAS WEIRD is available for $11.95 at the Pulpwork Press store and Amazon.com.
