JD Cowan on the Contemporary Pulp Movements

JD Cowan has a fascinating post up today that digs into the contemporary movements in short fiction, particularly the pulp renaissance that has been going on for the past few years, as well as the attitudes of pretenders who are trying to catch some of the wave despite actively disliking the roots of the form.

It’s particularly interesting to me to see a brief history of Cirsova magazine from an outside point of view, and this may actually be the first that’s really analyzed and contextualized what we’ve been doing over the course of the last several years.

Anyway, it’s a great article, so give it a read if you have a moment.
