Can anybody recommend a trash publisher?
« on: August 29, 2007, 06:30:00 PM »

I know big/mainstream publishers will consider non-traditional "trash" fiction, because I've seen a few books that come close to the things I'm working on.


Tokyo Suckerpunch, published by Harper Paperbacks.

The Destroyer series, published by Tor Books.  (Formerly published by Pinnacle Books.)

Viva Las Vengeance, published by St. Martin's Minotaur (the same company as Tor).

There's also this guide here.

I want to submit to those publishers, but I'd also like to find a small press that would allow me to do crazy things that most others would only laugh at.  Not an idiot publisher--just a publisher with a unique vision that feels right to me.

Magazines also.  Just really unique magazines that publish cross-genre trash with a focus on mystery.

I'm sure I could find a speculative fiction magazine that would be open to stories told from a mystery point of view, but I have no idea where to find magazines that would publish mysteries told from a speculative fiction point of view.  The same for comedy and absurd fiction.

The obvious answer is to look around and read a lot.  I'm just asking for a point in the right direction.

EDIT:  I found some articles about a pulp revival, but it seems to be over.  (It also seems not to have been a pulp revival, but more a pretentious fad.)
