Cagliostro ChroniclesThey were called scribes, word slingers, hacks, and penny-a-worders. But perhaps the most favored term, especially among the men and women who labored for the bloody pulps, was fictioneer or, more specifically, a fiction writer, particularly a prolific creator of commercial or pulp fiction. Join PulpFest as we celebrate today’s fictioneers—the authors writing the new pulp fiction—the New Fictioneers!

On Friday, August 8th, at 3:30 PM, meet Ralph L. Angelo, Jr. as he continues our 2014 New Fictioneers programming with readings from My Enemy, Myself: The Crystalon Saga, Book Two, The Cagliostro Chronicles 2: Conflagration, and a forthcoming superhero novel entitled Hyperforce.

The 2014 New Pulp Award for Best New Author, Ralph has written in the epic-fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, science-fiction and new-pulp genres as well as numerous non-fiction works about motorcycling. His other books include Redemption of the Sorcerer: The Crystalon Saga, Book One, The Cagliostro Chronicles, and Torahg the Warrior: Sword of Vengeance. Ralph has also written short stories for several Pro Se Productions and Airship 27 anthologies and Tales of Torahg the Warrior, Vol. 1, soon to be released  by Pro Se.
