Random House Inc, 10/24/2017

The first definitive visual history of the pulps, charting for the complete history of these magazines—the stories and their writers, the graphics and their artists, and, of course, the publishers, their market, and readers. Each chapter in the book is organized in a clear and accessible way, starting with an introductory overview of ten different sub-genres (spicy, shudder, romance, action, etc.). Then, followed by a selection of the best magazine covers and interior graphics, organized chronologically through the chapter. With an overall introduction on "The Birth of the Pulps" by Doug Ellis, and with two additional chapters focusing on the great pulp writers and artists. All images are fully captioned - many are in essence "nutshell" histories in themselves. Covers every aspect of this fascinating genre, illustrated with more than 400 examples of the best Pulp graphics (many from the editors’ collections—among the world’s largest).
