Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 10/25/17

Hello everyone! I know I said it last time, but it’s another very busy week, so I’ll just say that the Culver store will be hosting Richard Dent THIS 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!
