Welcome to the Exploding Typewriter: Pulp Writers on Writing Pulp! This is a podcast for those interested in creating pulp fiction themselves. Here are just some of the questions prospective pulp writers might have:

What is pulp fiction?

How do I break into this?

What do I need to know before jumping in?

What sort of resources are out there for me to use?

How do I create a good cover?

All these questions and more will be answered throughout the course of this show. Join along with New Pulp author and show host, Percival Constantine, as he introduces you to a variety of guests, all of whom are leading voices in the field of New Pulp and experienced in the topics they’re going to discuss.
