Geriatric lowbrow pulpster Emerson LaSalle notes that the Mississippi Review has posted their latest issue: Postmodern Pulp, Edited by Anthony Neil Smith, formerly of Plots With Guns. I haven't had a chance to read much of it, and with the exceptions of Ray Banks and Craig McDonaly there are few familiar names among the authors, but what I've seen so far looks... interesting.
A news report from the Associated Press contains good news for fans of genre bookstores - they're doing well. (hat tip: Bill Crider). Better, in fact, than other independent bookstores. According to the article, the keys to success are A) tapping in to highly committed niche markets, and B) expert, individual customer service.
