If you haven't heard of Pulp Mill Press or Libram Mysterium, the anthology was the brain-child of Tim Shorts of Gothridge Manor who, back in June, proposed publishing a book of short stories of the sort that might appear in a modern-day Appendix-N. A few others, including Ken Harrison of The Rusty Battleaxe, Boric Glandaum, and myself came on board and Pulp Mill Press was born. In fact, I'd long been contemplating putting something like this together some day, but as we all know, some day never comes, and if it hadn't been for Tim proposing the project, I would probably never have gotten around to it.
Tim, Ken and Boric ended up not being as closely involved with the project as we would have liked, due to other commitments on their time, but their support and enthusiasm, especially in the early days, helped make Pulp Mill Press a reality.
Libram Mysterium 1 is the first in what I hope will be an ongoing series of pulp style fantasy, horror, and science fiction stories, and I hope that as many of you as possible will check it out and pass the word on. At present the book is only available as a PDF download, but I am waiting on proofs and it should be available as a 6" x 9" trade paperback within a few weeks for those, like myself, who need a hard copy in hand.
The cost to buy the book is $2.99 for the PDF, $14.49 for the trade paperback, and $15.49 for the trade paperback/PDF combo pack.
Since I had no start-up money to fund this project, I was only able to offer the contributors free copies of the PDF in compensation, but I hope to be able to pay them actual money with proceeds from the sale of the book, so please do consider buying a copy - the authors and artist really do deserve to be paid for their outstanding work.
THIRTEEN TALES OF THE WEIRD AND FANTASTIC!
Join vengeance-seeking ghouls in Dylath-Leen; an expedition to the cursed ruins of an ancient city; and a mercenary company with only one criterion for recruits: they must already be dead.
This anthology recalls the pulp fantasy stories of the early- to mid-twentieth century: from pulse-pounding sword & sorcery adventure to chilling tales of the macabre, eldritch horrors, ruthless warriors, and fabulous treasures await within!
