Jungle Jim

Jungle Jim is an African pulp fiction/literary magazine, published twice a month from June this year. It features genre-based short and serialised fiction by African writers, alongside bold illustrations. Frequent, arresting, affordable, each issue showcases narrative-driven and imagination-driven stories, exploring the collision between the visceral world of pulp and the reality of living in Africa.
