Signal Boost: The PulpRev Sampler

PulpRev released its first fiction anthology late last week: The PulpRev Sampler. This collection has old hands, rising starts, and (like me) totally new authors each putting down something that captures the spitir of the old pulps and brings it forth to an audience hungry–starving–for the quality entertainment of the old days. As no few contributors (including myself) are also Superversive supporters, you that also seek the Superversive will find it here.

I’ve posted here at length, many times, how the Superversive is still out there in popular culture- just not the current Western establishment. As the Superversive and the Pulp Revolution share many common elements as well as participants, you should expect the stories in this collection to aspire to (if not achieve) the Superversive more often than not. If you want to change the culture, you have to get in the arena and fight for it; this is one such entry, and all of us are wanting to make the most of it.

And it’s a whopping 99 cents. Your risk is nothing but one less thing on the Dollar Menu. Just chick through the image link above, make that purchase, and enjoy all of the stories to your heart’s content. Then–please–leave a review and spread the word. Even the old hands who were so gracious as to contribute something could always use a hand in getting the word out, and those of us still ill-known, unknown, or (like me) totally new need that even more. You won’t be disappointed. Give the Sampler a go today.

Signal Boost: Latest Moth and Cobweb!

City of Corpses, the latest Moth and Cobweb book, now live!

City of Corpses is the second volume of the Dark Avenger’s Sidekick arc of the Moth and Cobweb series. (For Moth and Cobweb fans– this book includes a scene where the main character gets to overhear her magician boss speak to a certain silver-haired young man who always tells the truth…and seems to be able to understand his dog.)

Yumiko Moth has discovered her name, but she still does not know who, or what, she is. What she has learned is that her mother is dead, her master has disowned her, and her beloved has vanished. And she also knows that the Day world is a very dangerous place for a Twilight girl, especially when the dark forces of Night are hunting her.

To discover the truth she seeks, she must infiltrate the enemy’s citadel. In New York City, that is The Cobbler’s Club, home to the world-famous Peach Cobbler Girls. But how can a girl who stalks the shadows hide herself in the bright lights of the stage? CITY OF CORPSES is the fifth book of MOTH & COBWEB, an astonishing new series about magical worlds of Day, Night, and Twilight by John C. Wright.

John C. Wright is one of the living grandmasters of science fiction and the author of THE GOLDEN AGE, AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND, and IRON CHAMBER OF MEMORY, to name just three of his exceptional books. He has been nominated for both the Nebula and Hugo Awards, and his novel SOMEWHITHER won the 2016 Dragon Award for Best Science Fiction Novel at Dragoncon.

Signal Boost! First Planet With An Atmosphere Outside Our Solar System!

Will it have naked maidens? Bug-Eyed Monsters? Or is its atmosphere as forbidding as Venus?

Discovery! Atmosphere Spotted on
Nearly Earth-Size Exoplanet in First
By Sarah Lewin, Space.com Staff Writer

For the first time, scientists have detected an atmosphere around a planet beyond our solar system that’s just a little bit larger than Earth.

The exoplanet GJ 1132b, which orbits the dwarf star GJ 1132, is located about 39 light-years away from Earth. It has a radius about 1.4 times that of Earth and is 1.6 times Earth’s mass, according to the new study. When the planet was first discovered, researchers called it a potential Venus twin because it’s a rocky world with a very high surface temperature — and now, they’ve found that the planet and Venus might have a thick atmosphere in common, too (although it would have a different composition).

While observers have pinpointed atmospheres around much larger, Jupiter-like gas giants orbiting other stars — and a larger super-Earth, about eight times Earth’s mass — this is the first evidence of an atmosphere around an exoplanet that’s near Earth’s size, the study’s researchers said. Researchers can use planets’ atmospheres to try and determine if these worlds are suitable for life as we know it on Earth, or even to identify potential traces of life recorded there.

Signal Boost: A Doctor To Dragons

New from Superversive Press!  Yes, that’s us! We have a wonderful new book out for your reading pleasure!

The Dark Lord’s favorite dragon is constipated. Dr. James DeGrande, veterinarian and orc-slayer, is going to have to deal with it.

This one could get messy.

Everyone says it was better in the Good Old Days. Before the Dark Lord covered the land in His Second Darkness.

As far as I can tell, it wasn’t that much better. Even then, everyone cheered the heroes who rode unicorns into combat against dragons, but no one ever remembered who treated the unicorns’ phosphine burns afterward. Of course, that was when dragons were something to be killed. Today I have to save one. Know what fewmets are? No? Then make a sacrifice of thanks right now to whatever gods you worship, because today I have to figure a way to get them flowing back out of the Dark Lord’s favorite dragon. Yeah, from the other end. And that’s just my most illustrious client. I’ve got orcs and trolls who might eat me and dark elf barons who might sue me if their bloodhawks and chimeras don’t pull through. And that doesn’t even consider the possibility that the old bag with the basilisk might show up.

The only thing that’s gone right this evening is finding Harriet to be my veterinary assistant. She’s almost a witch, which just might save us both. If we don’t get each other killed first.

It is year 63 of the New Era. Nacerma has rid itself of society’s ills – homelessness, hunger, suffering and religious differences – becoming a country of peace.

Seventeen-year-old, Aadi, seeks something deeper than the life Nacerma offers. When her former boyfriend, turned priest, asks her to risk her life for her faith, she accepts the meaningful quest.

Mischa Llient is wanted by the Guard and needs to get out of town for awhile. When he’s asked to keep his best friend, Aadi, safe, he jumps at the chance.

Together, their faith and friendship are tested as they face thieves, highwaymen, the Red Guard and their own inner demons as their feelings for one another are revealed. Will their friendship survive the quest? Will they?
