I am pleased to announce the release of Visions Volume 2, the second in a series of pulp fiction anthologies published by Strider Nolan Media in cooperation with Visionary Comics. Ron Fortier, of Pulp Fiction Reviews and Airship27 Productions, calls Visions “the real deal, an honest-to-God modern pulp magazine!”
This volume contains my short story Greydeere, in which a wily thief matches wits with a ruthless, upper-class ruler. Mike Katz has contributed Forlorn Hope, the story of a policeman caught between a bizarre supernatural creature and an enigmatic team of monster hunters. (I’ve had a sneak peek at this one and can highly recommend it!) I am also looking forward to Bernd Struben’s story of post-apocalyptic Earth, and Barry Yelton’s meld of the supernatural and the Civil War. Other contributing authors include A. David Lewis, Nathan Meyer, Bryan Baugh, and C. Edward Sellner.
Not only is Visions packed with short stories, novellas, and serialized novels in a variety of genres, it’s beautifully illustrated. In fact, I ordered a print of the Necromancer illustration from the first volume. It now hangs in my house and frightens small children. Rumor has it that the production crew from the television show 30 Rock also ordered a print and may use it on the set sometime this season. Anxiously waiting for that episode …
Visions is my first experience with a pulp fiction magazine. I’m honored to be a contributing author, and anxious to get my hands on a copy of this new edition to read! Visions can be purchased at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
