Karl Fischer’s LEVELS and a call for titles to be included in the 2021 Bizarro Pulp Press lineup

We don’t talk nearly enough about our collaborative work with Journalstone, specifically in regards to their imprint, Bizarro Pulp Press. We acquire titles and run production for these books, 4-to-6 titles per year, for release under Journalstone’s “Bizarro” outfit. We do this because we love the genre and we love the imprint. Our goal is simple: good books.

FAIREST FLESH Street Date and Cover Reveal, and More

The street date for the trade paperback of FAIREST FLESH has been moved out by about a month and change. The title is now expected to release on December 1st, 2020 (instead of October 31st). The reason for this is simple: MARKETING.

FAIREST FLESH is a debut novel, and Rooster Republic/Strangehouse Books is as indie as it gets, all things considered, so in order to give this book the best release possible, we opted to move the release date to accommodate more time for lead-in marketing. Mostly, this translates to us getting the book into the hands of more reviewers, which we have been grinding away at for the better part of this week. And we’re rolling the dice on some bigger venues because, frankly, we believe this book deserves all the eyes we can get on it.

FAIREST FLESH special edition pre-orders!

Paul Tremblay (A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS and SURVIVOR SONG) had this to say about FAIREST FLESH:

“Deftly mashing together notorious historical figures, feminism, and the grimmest of fairy tales, FAIREST FLESH is as brutally horrifying as it is mesmeric. Consider me a K.P. Kulski fan for life.”

Fairest Flesh MEDIA dust jacket

Well, we’d say it looks like it’s time for . . . FLESH! This book will undoubtedly garner a lot of word of mouth, and it deserves every bit of it! Rooster Republic looks forward to hearing and seeing reader’s responses to this outstanding novel.

Pre-orders and blurbs and cover artwork!

June is drawing to a close. It’s been a rough month, no doubt, but let’s share some GOOD STUFF. There’s been a big lack of good stuff lately.

2020’s official mascot, or an outtake for Cradleland of Parasites? Take your pick!

First, a reminder that the absolutely beautiful special edition of Sara Tantlinger’s CRADLELAND OF PARASITES is up for pre-order on July 1st. That’s only a couple days away! There’s only going to be 100 of these made available for purchase and I’d be surprised if we still have any left by the end of July. We’ll post something more official on Wednesday.

The February Sale Continues With New Premade Covers

Some new pieces from this week. Commission work has kept me on my toes but at the end of the day I try to unwind by… doing more art? I guess I like making covers or something.


All premade covers are usually $100 via paypal, $25 extra to expand them to print jackets. Custom covers start at $150. Always feel free to email us at and for more info and covers navigate to our Design Services tab or click HERE.

But for Valentines Day last week, we wanted to show our appreciation and launched a sale for all the premade covers. So, until the end of February, all premades are $65 for the cover (this includes any text/fonts as well).  Enjoy!
