PULP-O-MIZER: the custom pulp magazine cover generator When you purchase your custom pulp magazine cover on a printed product, the reliable Pulp-O-Mizer cranks it up to high gear and - after a few seconds of groaning and sputtering - it spits out a high resolution image at (or even over) 300 pixels to the inch.

But even now, the adventure has barely begun!

I like to say, “It’s the PEOPLE, stupid” — NOT the monsters!” - Stephen King What makes readers care about your characters? Strategy List: 35 Dimensions of Critical Thought S-1 Thinking Independently Principle: Critical thinking is independent thinking, thinking for oneself. Many of our beliefs are acquired at an early age, when we have a strong tendency to form beliefs for irrational reasons (because we want to believe, because we are praised or rewarded for believing).
