Knock, knock …

While I nod­ded, nearly nap­ping, sud­denly there came a tap­ping, As of some one gen­tly rap­ping, rap­ping at my cham­ber door. —“The Raven”, Edgar Allen Poe

As our beau­ti­ful cover art by Tais Teng im­plies, one never knows what will hap­pen when you open the door to ad­ven­ture. By some act of syn­chronic­ity, the first three sto­ries in this is­sue fea­ture a door that, once opened, can­not be shut. Whether one would wish them shut again or not, we will leave our read­ers to de­cide.

We three edi­tors, hav­ing once opened the door onto our own Pulp Lit­er­a­ture ad­ven­tures, now find our­selves in a hall of glit­ter­ing trea­sure. Our third is­sue fea­tures yet an­other great Cana­dian writer, Joan Macleod, our lat­est pearl in a

strand of no­table au­thors that we have lined up well into next year. We have also man­aged to en­snare other ob­jets d’art, like Van­cou­ver’s Poet Lau­re­ate Ge­orge Mcwhirter, who is cur­rently judg­ing our Mag­pie Po­etry con­test. We’ve col­lected th­ese trea­sures like ravens in the woods, swoop­ing down to col­lect the shiny ob­jects which catch our eye. With a laden beak, we come tap­ping at the door, bear­ing gifts.

Thank you for open­ing your door.
