THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF is nine months old now. There’s been some amazing growing pains involved, but there’s still work to be done to find this blog’s niche.
One thing I started to notice, though I have loved all the support for mysteries and “cozy mysteries” in particular, is that the Pulp portion of the mission statement of this blog seems to be getting overlooked. There will be a change coming in 2017 that will hopefully bring some more balance to the content.
THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF will expand to Fridays starting December 2016. However, for December, the Friday slots will be opened to mystery and suspense books in order to encourage more holiday purchases and give more authors exposure. While Friday will continue to be a regular slot, in the following year the purpose will be more specific.
Starting in January 2017, the Friday slots will turn over to being more themed by featuring classic and contemporary Pulp books as well as titles that can tie their roots to the classic Pulps – SF, fantasy, and thriller. Mondays and Wednesdays will remain more traditional mystery whodunits and crime, particularly Mondays as that has been established with the #mondaysformystery hashtag. Over the next few months, the status of how to best use Wednesdays will be evaluated.
Thank you for your continued support of THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF.

Shannon Muir, administrator of THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF, will appear at LosCon 43. LOSCON is run by the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society, the world’s oldest, continuously active science-fiction and fantasy club founded in 1934. Shannon appeared on several panels several years ago for LOSCON 36 and really looks forward to making a return appearance.
While she will be there all weekend, one panel in particular discusses book blogs like THE PULP AND MYSTERY SHELF – and will certainly delve into other online sources – as a force for finding new reads, with an emphasis on science fiction and fantasy,which find their roots in the pulp era. If you are into these genres, come check out the panel, along with other great panels on BOOKS AND LITERATURE, at LOSCON 43 on Thanksgiving Weekend of 2016!
