ThrillerCast Episode 66- New Pulp with Bobby Nash

In this episode, David and Alan discuss "New Pulp" with Bobby Nash. We also take Random House to the woodshed for their new digital-first publishing contracts. More important, however, is the fact that Al finally bought a decent microphone. Woo hoo!

Our guest is author Bobby Nash.

What is the current state of "New Pulp?" Is it still alive and well, or is it on the decline?

What is New Pulp? Can it be defined? What are the common characteristics?

How has e-publishing driven New Pulp?

Story length and pacing.

Who is writing or publishing New Pulp right now?

Who are some of the "classic" pulp writers?

What's happening with Bobby's work?

Nominated for Pulp Ark and Pulp Factory awards. Other writing projects. Comics and screenplays.

Writing for comics vs writing prose.

Advice for writers- if you want it to be your job, treat it like a job!

It is rare to find Lance Star: Sky Ranger writer, Bobby Nash at a loss for words, but that’s exactly what happened after the list of winners of the 2013 Pulp Ark Awards was posted at All Pulp last week. "It took a while for the news to sink in, and even now I don’t think it’s really hit me completely yet," Nash said in a statement on his website. "After years as a working writer I can now add the title “Award Winning” before my name, which is pretty darn cool, let me tell you."

The full list of winners is below, including several talented creators, all of whom deserve a hearty congratulations. He also wanted to highlight Bobby's win as well.


Says Bobby of his win:
This was the one that really floored me. I knew I had been nominated, but quite frankly I never expected to win this one. I mean, there were a lot of incredibly talented creators nominated. When I read through the list of winners and saw my name listed here all I could hear was the cartoon-ish sound effect of my jaw hitting the floor like it was made out of lead.

I really don’t know what to say except Thank You to everyone who voted for me. Thank you to everyone who has read one (or more) of my stories. Thank you to the fantastic people I’ve gotten to meet as a result of the books I’ve been privileged to work on. Thank you to the publishers and editors who have hired me and helped me to (hopefully) become a better writer. I’m sure I’ll be able to string together better words once the shock wears off, if it ever will. And finally, thank you for reading through my frantic musings here. My brain is bouncing from one thought to another faster than I can keep up. Might be time to lay off the Mt. Dew for the night, I guess.

The Pulp Ark Awards will be handed out at the Pulp Ark Convention in Springdale Arkansas on the evening of Saturday, April 27, 2013. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the entire weekend, but I am planning to be there on Saturday during the day and into the evening.

Thanks again and congratulations to all the winners.
