What, Another Magazine?



The goal of BROADSWORDS AND BLASTERS is to highlight those genres that the editors enjoy reading and we hope our readers enjoy too. Whether its tales of adventurers stealing gems from ancient temples, Westerns where a six-gun is a woman’s best friend, or a detective story where a minor theft reveals a mysterious cult at work, those are the stories we’d like to see.

The ethos we’re after is the pulp magazines of the 1920’s to 1940’s. We’re interested in action over navel contemplation, and larger-than-life characters. That doesn’t mean we’re looking for stories that are racist, sexist, or homophobic. In fact, those kinds of stories will get rejected even faster than ones that aren’t formatted properly or that have a multitude of grammatical mistakes.

Our goal is to put out a great magazine filled with adventure, memorable characters, and intrigue. We encourage writers from underrepresented groups to submit their stories and look forward to reading your stories.

So check out our submissions page and send us what you got!

    I know this blog is much neglected, and primarily focused on my poetry, but a friend and I are starting up a pulp magazine.
