Bullpit Magazine – Issue #1, Fall 2012

Sunday, October 14th, 2012


In June of 2011 I had the bright idea to start a magazine to accompany my weekly rock podcast. It was a much more difficult thing to accomplish than I imagined, and it took 15 months to get the first issue done. I probably would have given up if bands, writers and photographers hadn’t worked hard on the various contributions. This, like nothing I’ve ever done, is a true collaboration.

Go to to get a free PDF and digital compilation featuring all the bands in the issue. I included one of my brand new solo songs, as well as a Bull Lee single with guest-vocalist Dmitra Smith of the band Static People (who are featured in the magazine and on the comp).

The issue is also available as a print-on-demand magazine. Details on this, and mobile-viewing are emailed to subscribers at

Thanks to all the bands, writers, photographers and friends who helped out. Design by the great Joey Mann.

I am shooting for a Spring 2013, Issue #2.

Word on the street is that New Terminal Hotel writer-director BC Furtney’s sexy, gore-drenched pulp novel SCARLA is complete and a release date will be announced soon…


Check out the cover by L.A. artist Essi Zimm. BC says it’s “the ideal topping to the sick little cake that is, it seems, my debut novel. Essence captured”. 

New Terminal Hotel is available on in both DVD and VOD formats.

New Terminal Hotel as Pulp Fiction

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

nexgenpinupA new review in NexGen Pulp’s Spring 2010 issue provides a fresh perspective on New Terminal Hotel, parting from the dumbed-down, bloodporn junkie point of view found in most horror reviews found online.

When I first read BC’s script for NTH, I thought gothic noir. Of course it’s more than that, but as a fan of classic noir films, I was delighted by the story. I’m even more taken with the finished product. NexGen seems to feel the same way calling it an “exciting new incarnation of new film noir”, with allusions to Hitchcock, Lovecraft and Poe.

Here are a few excerpts:

“It is reminiscent of more than one pulp genre. To begin with, the setting of the seedy hotel, the murders, and the unfolding mystery as to what motivates the killer all hearken back to the classic detective stories, only the film puts the audience in the P.I.’s chair.”

“It is the character of that killer, Don Malek, that is the mystery. It is hard to tell, at first, if his actions and mannerisms are coming from twisted eccentricity or some yet to be revealed depth. It saves the first half of the film from becoming yet another Hostel-style horror film that relies on shock factor in place of character development.”

“New Terminal Hotel is an exciting new incarnation of new film noir and new pulp fiction. It is firmly rooted in the spirit of the old pulps but develops in a modern setting relevant to a modern viewer. That said, it may not be for every pulp fan, as the “genre” is a wide one. But horror fans, craving more than cheap tricks and surprise turns of character masquerading as psychological depth, will.”
