Faster than the Speed of Pulp #PulpRev

Last week, Larry Correia noted that, since George RR Martin last came out with a Game of Thrones novel, Larry had published ... a lot.

Larry Correia Pulp Speed

 I can understand why fans who give a crap about Martin's snuff porn -- sorry, it's written, so snuff erotica -- are impatient. If you like this stuff, and want to just get to the end, pulling out your hair seems reasonably. All the "harassment" Martin gets from fans led to Neil Gaiman whining to Martin's fan that "GRRM is not your bitch."

To which I say, "No, Martin is a bitch. And so are you, Neil." But that's another story.

Brian Niemeier jumped on that bandwagon and rode it.

However, the book Larry mentions is from 2012. It occurred to me that my career STARTED in 2012.

And what did I bloody well come out with?


If this looks strangely unfamiliar to you, it's because Dawn Witzke did the cover. Because she really wanted the last one to go.

Then A Pius Legacy, then A Pius Stand, which have been pulled from shelves, so no link. But Legacy will be back in December.

Then the short stories, and the history ... also pulled from the shelves. Ending up in 5 books of The Pius Trilogy

Then, in a post-Pius universe...

And the companion piece. Sort of.

And with mustn't forget my solution to dystopias ... with gun fire.

And, of course, the series everyone likes....

With accompanying short stories....

And, of course, my nonfiction.

And, of course, we can't forget the short that appeared here.

So, 14 books, four short stories.

But wait, there's more!

I've been accepted to the following anthologies thus far.

  • Mercury (From Superversive Press)
  • Trump Utopia (From Superversive Press)
  • A Superhero anthology (Silver Empire)
  • Knights of the Round Table Anthology
  • And two for Lyonesse . (Silver Empire)
14 books, 10 Short stories,

And I've already submitted to Venus, Mars, and I'm waiting for Earth to accept submissions, I've got that written.

I've already got a murder mystery nearly done, so it'll be out by year's end. Good to the Last Drop will be out by DragonCon, I suspect. The Witzke / Finn Dark Court project, TBD.

So, God willing, by the end of 2017, I'll have 16 books published, and 13 short stories

All in five years.

Not bad.

Granted, Martin doesn't need to do anything for money anymore, does he? He has a TV show. He could die before he runs out of money, and he'd never have to write another word. Maybe they could get Brandon Sanderson to finish up his work, too.

Thing is, even if I hit the jackpot like that, I can't imagine doing anything more than taking off for a month or three every year. After a few weeks, the voices in my head want me to write them, and won't go away. I guess Martin has it easy -- every time a character bothers him, he murders them.

If I ever get that sedentary about my work, there are standing instructions to poke me with a stick until I write again.

On that note, I'm almost done with the murder mystery. It's book 1 of three. Perhaps book 1 of 5.


And don't forget the Dragon Awards.
