Thrilled to be included in the new Pulp Modern  # 6 JFK Edition

My story "Kingslayer" has passed through the eye of the editorial needle and 
will be included with a host of other great JFK stories in the new
Pulp Modern #6 JFK Issue

Here's the line-up for the JFK issue of PULP MODERN:

Terry Alexander
Joe Clifford
Ken Goldman
Ross Peterson
Rob Pierce
Eryk Pruitt
Chris Rhatigan
Mav Skye
Frank Sonderborg

Joe Clifford sets up the entire issue with a story where things are, appropriately, not at all what they seem.  
Sort of like what happened back in 1963.  
Then we get some 'straight' realism stories, including a piece by Rob Pierce that (in my humble opinion) should be nominated for a spot in the next Best American Short Stories collection.  
Ken Goldman then cranks up the 'what the hell?' factor with his story that leads into Chris Rhatigan's outrageous contribution and a story by a "new" writer named Mav Skye. 
The whole thing ends with Frank Sonderborg's meditation on presidential assassinations and the car that Kennedy died in. 
Hopefully the fiction in Pulp Modern #6 will live up to the fiction in the Warren Report... Editor Alec Cizak;

Pulp Modern is published by Alec Cizak and Uncle B. Publications

Which of course, is the day, 50yrs ago in Dallas, Camelot was extinguished.

Or so the legend goes. 

5***** Amazon Review for Pulp Modern #6 JFK

One of the most unique journals I've read in a long time.

 These stories are tied together by the event of JFK being assassinated. What could have been an endless parade of conspiracy stories is actually a neatly woven tapestry of tales approaching the subject from a multitude of angles. Joe Clifford's story is possibly the most paranoid, all the while commenting on the paranoia surrounding the event. Very clever. "November 1963" is a very literary story that makes some subtle commentary on the connection between Lee Harvey Oswald and the gun 'culture' that has sprouted in his wake (at least, that's how I read the story). Chris Rhatigan goes crazy bizarre in his story and Mav Skye takes things, literally, out of the stratosphere. This is one of the most unique journals I've read in a long time.
