New Pulp Press

"Bullets, Booze and Bastards"


Please read all the details below carefully.


We like gritty, edgy crime fiction. Stories that are noir and transgressive. Tales of madness, murder and mayhem. Adventure tales laced with sex and dark humor. One off stories and series characters. Tales larger than life and darker than sin. Most importantly we are looking for great writing that takes us to places we’ve never been before!!!

  2. Your work should be fully edited in the sense that you have done all that is necessary and possible to make you work polished, literate and error free.
  3. If you’re anal retentive by nature, this may mean you can do this yourself. Otherwise, before you submit your manuscript it should be edited by a professional. We are a small press and do not have the resources to provide any material amount of editing of your work. So if your submission does not arrive carefully edited, chances are it will get rejected out of hand.
