What is TFLS?

What is Two-Fisted Library Stories?
A collection of fiction, comics, and art created by you (hopefully!) concerning libraries and library workers.

Weren't you called "Two-Fisted Librarians"?
Yes, but we changed the name to be more inclusive of all library workers.

What is pulp fiction?
Stories that fondly recall the pulp magazines of the '20s, '30s, and '40s, and comics of the '40s and '50s. Mad science, weird fantasy, occult horror, spicy mysteries, noirish romances, thrilling adventures, and whatever else. Want to write about a library that uses steampunk technology, a cataloguing system so obtuse that it drives those that try to use it insane, or a librarian who has to track down a Nazi zeppelin in order to get an overdue book? Go for it!

Still looking for ideas? The Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast or the TV Tropes page for Two Fisted Tales might be of help.

What is a zine?
A self published, usually photocopied magazine that contains everything from recipes, to travelogues, to thrilling adventure fiction. We'll put it together and organize a launch party, all you have to do is write a story, draw a picture, or show off your creativity in some other way. (Though we might ask you to help fold and staple zines.)
