Pop­corn Fiction

Pop­corn Fic­tion grew out of a love for pulpy short fic­tion that used to dom­i­nate pop­u­lar mag­a­zines in the mid-​20th Cen­tury. Derek Haas wanted to cre­ate a place where new pop­u­lar short fic­tion could flour­ish, and Hol­ly­wood could have a new resource for cul­ti­vat­ing great ideas. Not every story is a crime or sci­ence fic­tion story, but each is infi­nitely read­able. Web­site — www​.pop​corn​fic​tion​.com
