The Paperback Fanatic #36

TPF36_500Justin Marriott publishes digest magazines: The Paperback Fanatic, Pulp Horror, The Sleazy Reader, and Men of Violence! And he’s working on a new title called Hot Lead, dedicated to westerns.

He recently sat still long enough for a fascinating interview with Paul Bishop. Among others things he spoke about his publishing process:

“My system is to solicit pre-orders for a new publication stating a deadline for when I go to print. I then print almost the same numbers as pre-ordered, paying the printers to mail them out. This means I’m not out of pocket during the gap between paying the printers and receiving orders, nor am I sitting on boxes of back issues.”
