Pulp Modern quickly went from a quarterly to a biannual publication in 2012 due to the fact that Alec Cizak was doing all the editorial work by himself. When the indie scene just about completely died in 2016, Cizak contacted Richard Krauss, the editor of The Digest Enthusiast, and asked if he would help revitalize Pulp Modern. Thus began Volume Two and the ascent of Pulp Modern to a quality digest capable of competing with the mainstream pulps such as Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and Ellery Queen. The addition of illustrator Ran Scott has set the journal far ahead of any and all competition. Recent staff additions Rebecca Jones-Howe and Tia Ja’nae have only enhanced the brand.
