StoryHack, Issue 1 is live on Kickstarter!

All right, everything is finally ready. The campaign for StoryHack Action & Adventure, Issue 1 is now live. Check it out and let me know what you think. I’m kind of a one man show in this thing, so I never know if the jokes are going to land, etc.

If you haven’t seen the announcement floating around, Issue 0 is out and the ebook is ready for downloading. There’s a link on the KickStarter page. I think it turned out great and I’m pumped about the quality of stories I was able to include.

If you want to help keep the pulp goodness flowing, please share that KickStarter link on any Facebook page or group you’re a member of where it makes sense to do so. Or tweet something. You know, help me get the word out. I will be forever grateful.

  1. Proud to have pledged. You did fantastic work on Issue Zero and the mag deserves to live.

    You did ask what we thought, so I’ll raise one minor concern: I can understand the concerns that lead to the “pretentious drivel” comment, but I think it’s pejorative in a way that undermines the efficacy of the project. Most of the people I’ll be trying to sell on this project read widely–they’re pulp fans, but they’re not JUST pulp fans. They appreciate quality reading across the spectrum, pulp included. I don’t think there’s any need to poke those folks in the eye by implying their highbrow faves are crap.

    The point of StoryHack, it seems to me, is that StoryHack is AWESOME. It’s not necessary to slam anyone else’s work in order to prove that point. Or especially helpful, really.

    1. Steve, thanks for your thoughts. I appreciate the concern. I debated over the 2 or 3 months I’ve been planning the magazine & writing the materials on what kind of tone I was going to take. My goal is to create stark contrast, so that folks know exactly what they’re getting, and maybe smile at the gentle ribbing. Hopefully folks can see that I’m trying to do so with a wink, a smile, and a dash of satire. That’s why as I mention no other specific magazine by name, nor do I even imply anything about the readers of those magazines. And I also hope that nobody is offended by my use of strong language such as “namby-pamby.” ๐Ÿ™‚
