Why We Write

For money? I’m laugh­ing. For glory? We wish. For en­light­en­ment? Oc­ca­sion­ally. But what ev­ery real writer will tell you is this: we write be­cause we must.

The sto­ries you are about to read are off­spring of the Muse that sim­ply had to be born. This fic­tion is fruit from the high­est pin­na­cle of civ­i­liza­tion, re­quir­ing both an ed­u­cated cre­ator and an ed­u­cated au­di­ence, a lit­er­ate so­ci­ety with time enough to dream.

The edi­tors of Pulp Lit­er­a­ture have much on their plate th­ese days, and are busy as beavers. But we are com­pelled to not only write, but pub­lish. With­out the Muse’s urg­ing, th­ese sto­ries might have lain still­born, un­read, undis­cov­ered. We pub­lish for the same rea­sons that we write: be­cause we must. Be­cause with­out this cre­ative com­mu­nity out­let, not only do we die a lit­tle, but so do you, dear reader.

It is not the un­ex­am­ined life that is not worth liv­ing; it is the life with­out lit­er­ary ad­ven­ture.

Happy Trav­els,
