GIANT ROBOT BOOKS: The New Publisher in Town!

There’s a new publisher who has taken up the mantel of New Pulp.
 Writer and editor James Palmer has formed a new publishing imprint designed to take advantage of the surge in popularity of New Pulp fiction, as well as the huge explosion of Print on Demand publishing and ebooks.
 “This is an amazing time to be a writer or editor,” says Palmer.  “I really wanted to hit the ground running with something that can use these new technologies in new and unique ways.”
 Giant Robot Books will not only publish New Pulp, but weird western, steampunk, and sci-fi, and has several anthologies planned.
 “I will be rolling out some theme anthologies as well as individual novels and short stories,” says Palmer.  “Stick around. It’s going to be a wild ride.”
Giant Robot Books is a new publishing imprint specializing in science fiction, New Pulp, steampunk, and more.
