  1. The founding editors of Pulp Literature are literary angels who work like devils.
    Such individuals deserve overwhelming support.
    I’m honored to be working with them on the Hummingbird contest, and I urge all of you to take a long at what they’ve accomplished.

    always wishing you the best,
