Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 10/18/17

Hello everyone! Another very busy week, so I’ll just say that the Culver store will be hosting Richard Dent next Wednesday, the 25th. Check out the details for his book Myopia below.  See you at the bottom…

Upcoming Events

 

Creator Signing – Richard Dent (Myopia)
Wednesday October 25th

Based on an award-winning story by writer Rich Dent, “Myopia” merges speculative fiction and steampunk into a thrilling alternative reality.  Armed with a special set of lenses that make him almost invisible inside the Central Lens Network, James Chase sets out on a mission to stop the new world order’s violation of the Magnetic Energy Agreement.  At first sold as a device to make life more convenient, the lens now works as a tool for the government to hide the devastation unleashed from excessive mining of the earth’s core. Myopia migrated over from a successful Kickstarter supported by George R.R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, Dean Koontz, and Jim Butcher.

Creator Signing – Jordan Hart (Doppelganger, Terminarch)
Wednesday November 15th

One of our Culver customers has a new mini-series coming out from Alterna called Doppelganger! Jordan describes it as “a buddy-supernatural story with a healthy amount of humor (think Fright Night from 1985).” Great, I love Fright Night! His new book comes out November 15th and he’ll be promoting it at the Culver store that day. Come by and check it out!

Kid Lobotomy #1 Deal of the Week 50% OFF!

(W) Peter Milligan (A) Tess Fowler (CA) Frank Quitely

Kafka meets King Lear by way of Young Frankenstein in KID LOBOTOMY, a dark, demented, monthly satire that follows a dysfunctional family of hoteliers. Will sibling rivalry, seduction, and shapeshifting eventually lead to sanity or salvation?
Big Daddy is a rich hotelier who, in a cracked echo of King Lear, appoints his youngest descendant to manage The Suites, a peculiar hotel located behind the Black Crown Pub. Affectionately known as Kid, his good looks and swagger can’t hide a rough childhood of strange therapies and brain operations that have awakened inner demons and psychodramas. This of course makes him eminently qualified to perform lobotomies. A failed rockstar/successful madman gets one last change to prove his worth-and regain his sanity-by turning the hotel that was once his childhood sanctuary into a lucrative business, despite a host of obstacles-including his own sister-who would love nothing more than to see him fail miserably.
