Book Description

Step aside boys it’s the women’s turn. Pulp Press and For Books’ Sake have teamed up to bring you a collection of the best new pulp fiction short stories from the most savage, brutal bunch of broads we could find on these fair shores. We serve up a delicious stack of hard-bitten tales smothered in sweet revenge and a dollop of pure weirdness, delivered by a limey waitress with an eye patch and a snarl. Britain isn’t all tea and toffs…

Featuring stories from: Shelagh M. Rowan-Legg, Donna Moore, Bernadette Russell, Jane Osis, Zoe Lambert, Icy Sedgwick, Evangeline Jennings, Gill Shutt, Claire Rowland and Mihaela Nicolescu.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fierce, fiesty and addictive 30 Mar. 2012
By Holly C
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having never really read a lot of pulp fiction, I was tempted into buying this because it was a compilation of tales from female authors. Girl power, I thought. And girl power I got. A great, high-octane mix of sci-fi, fantasy, crime, and good old blood, guts and gore, this is a great introduction to genre fiction and I read it cover to cover in one sitting.

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it! 11 April 2013

This is exactly what you need for long journeys on public transport or whenever you need a quick hit of fun pulp fiction. I love that it's all women writers. It's so cheap, I'd definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something a bit different 21 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I heard about this book after visiting the 'For Books Sake' website. Not only was I impressed with the way it promotes female writers - in a really engaging way, using social media to get people interested - but I really liked the sound of this collection of 'pulp fiction'. The best collections of short stories should be bound by a common theme, but be interesting and varied enough that they stand alone. Short Stack totally nails it. There were a range of settings, characters, narrative styles and strong female characters that I really enjoyed. Also, there were plenty of apocalyptic themes and incidences of the undead; always a winner in my book... to say nothing of the sex, violence and rock and roll that came streaming out of my Kindle page.

You can in theory, read one story at a time and be totally satisfied, but you may find that you end up reading 2, 3 or more stories in one sitting. My favourite concerned a lady called Lola; she was a showgirl - but if you think you already know her story, prepare to be surprised.

Only have one criticism of this collection - some of the stories simply seem too short and I wasn't ready to leave the scenes they created. I could also have done with more stories in the collection itself. I suppose the answer is to look out for more work by these authors in the future!
