Just imagine...


From the vaults of the pulp electro-web comes this 47 page story from Phillip Francis Nowlan featuring a character you are all familiar with...

Now, to go off on a 4GMedia tangent - isn't this cool that you can download this classic story for free on the web? In a variety of electronic formats?
Now imagine new pulp fiction available the same way - paid for with advertising on a website. New characters. New stories. New methods. Authors paid based on the number of downloads. The best pulp stories and novels collected in limited editions with illustrations by fan favorite illustrators. All published on demand so there's no upfront cost except a creator's time.

Imagine if we could recreate the pulp industry for the new digital age. Getting people to express themselves through writing...

But let's not limit it to prose - what about short videos? Comics? Articles? Message boards. Art galleries. All under one digital roof.

Just imagine...

What John said...that's what we're working on at Astonishing Adventures Magazine (shameless plug). And that's why it may seem vaguely familiar to Shawna.
Now, Bill, you will have your story ready for the third issue, right? Deadline is February 1.
