‘Pulse-Pounding Narratives’ by Jeffrey Ford

leave a comment »

These are actually five brilliant one-page spoofs originally published in The Journal Of Pulse-Pounding Narratives:

Spicy Detective #3
Arabesques of Eldritch Weirdness #8
Doc Aggressive, Man of Tin #2
Six Gun Loner on the High Bute #6
Deep Space Adventure #32

Those titles should give you a clue but if they don’t it is hard to reproduce their affect here because they are not just one-pagers but one-liners, pulp stories compressed to their glorious essence.

Quality: *****
