From the pulp lit pulpit
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.
