C. S. Woodburn announced as a Pulp Sci-Fi from the Rock author!

One of our greatest pleasures is bringing new talent to the forefront with our From the Rock collections! With that in mind, we’re proud to announce that C. S. Woodburn joins us for Pulp Sci-Fi from the Rock!

Woodburn was born in Vancouver and currently lives on the West Coast. She has worked as an office cleaner, tea server, sales associate, and office assistant. Her only previous writing credit is ‘Sardines’ from the short story collection The Body Book.

She brings with her ‘Green,’ a sombre look at the future that might have some reliving memories of Dystopia from the Rock.


Twenty other authors will be joining CS Woodburn and Steve Power for the 2020 Pulp Sci-Fi on the Rock collection! We have established authors, award-winners, bestsellers, and returning From the Rock alumni left to announce! Who will join them? Stay tuned and Never Look Back!
