I was but a dream in the cosmos when Pulphouse first opened for business in 1988, and still too young to appreciate such stuff in 1996, when Pulphouse closed its doors. About a year ago, I first heard mention of the mag's existence, did some research, and found out, hey, Pulphouse was back! I picked up issue zero to start with, and here's what I think.

Pulphouse was founded foremost on the principal of "quality fiction"--no genre limititations, just great fiction. The stories in Pulphouse are all a little...different. And by different, I mean strange, eccentric, and off-the-wall, but delightfully so. The stories vary in genre, from sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, to stuff that defies any one genre (is "weird" a genre?). Bar none, all the tales are excellent and are a joy to read. The quality of writing is superior, and the ideas are golden. There was not a bad story in the bunch, and I'd have trouble picking a favorite, because they are all good, though in different ways. While all the strories in issue zero are reprints, I'd wager you haven't read many of them, even the ones that are many years old.

If you have any interest in short fiction, absolutely give Pulphouse a shot. I was not familiar with many of the writers in the issue, so it was a great way to get to know some new authors and get out of my comfort zone as a reader. I am very much looking forward to reading future Pulphouse volumes. Kudos to DWS (that's Dean Wesley Smith, mind you, NOT Dancing With the Stars) and the crew at WMG publishing; there are some groovy things hap'nen there, and I do hope they keep it up!

NOTE: Pulphouse subscriptions are available straight from WMG publishing in both print and electronic formats. You can also buy the issues individually through Amazon (also in print or digital).
