Pulp Literature Kickstarter


Over the past three years, the fiction magazine Pulp Literature has published a dozen issues packed full of genre-busting short stories, comics, poetry, novellas, and novel excerpts. Their comics have included the works of such Cloudscape members as Bevan Thomas, Kris Sayer, and Eric Johnson. Now their company is branching into novels, the high fantasy Allaigna’s Song: Overture by J. M. Landels and the mystery Stella Ryman and the Fairmont Manor Mysteries by Mel Anastasiou. The Kickstarter they’re using to raise the funds to publish the two books has a lot of great stuff available. In addition to the two novels themselves, there is also a subscription to Pulp Literature magazine, a writer’s journal, art prints, and more! If you are interested in supporting Vancouver-based genre fiction, then check out the Pulp Literature: Something Novel Kickstarter. It ends December 1, so check it out as soon as possible.

Epic Canadiana #2 Kickstarter Has Begun!

The Kickstarter fundraiser for Epic Canadiana #2, Cloudscape’s second anthology of Canadian superheroes, has begun!

Epic Canadiana #2 features 17 stories (over 200 pages!) dedicated to exploring numerous flavours of superheroism within Canada. EPIC CANADIANA #2 is a black & white anthology featuring awesome comics written and drawn by creators from all over Canada, with 17 stories (over 200 pages!). It features a truly diverse collection of heroes – some of them pastiches of classic 40s characters and others totally new. There are arctic demigods and social activists, restless spirits and bison-riding vigilantes. Canada is a tapestry of great diversity, and we have striven to represent them in our anthology with heroes of various genders, ethnicities, and perspectives, including aboriginal and immigrant champions, a character coping with autism, a gay rights activist, a conflicted colonial soldier, and many more. And carefully studying all of them is Department None, a hidden branch of the Canadian government dedicated to keeping track of all superhumans… and dealing with them if necessary.

The anthology features comics by Edison Yan (Scribblenauts), Craig Wilson (Graphic Classics), Colin Upton (Self-Indulgent Minicomics), Julian Lawrence (Drippytown), Eric Johnson (The Graphic Canon Vol. 1), and D. M. Higgins (Superdames, Jill Trent: Science Sleuth); as well as previous Clousdscape contributors Bevan Thomas, Kris Sayer, Jordan Stasuk, Jason Wilkins, Ksenia Kozhevnikova, Jayleen Weaver, Jeri Weaver, Matthew Klippenstein, Ian Thomas, Shevon Singh, Micah Iwaasa, Kate Ebensteiner, and Jeff Ellis; and newcomers Nevin Arnold, Dino Caruso, George Athanasiou, Nelson de Rocha, Alex Greychuck, Manoj Kumar, Kyle Roberts, Liam Rodgers, and John Ward.
