About Pulp

Bring thrills and chills home by the shelf with a collection of pulp periodicals, the go-to option for literary entertainment from the 1800s through the 1950s. Pulp magazines?so called because of the inexpensive wood pulp paper they were printed on?came packed with stories from a broad range of genres. Whatever type of reading you enjoy, you can find a pulp magazine to make you happy. Romance, adventure, science fiction, horror, and detective pulps were among the most popular, and they packed the newsstand shelves. Famed authors like Isaac Asimov, Louis L'Amour, Philip K Dick, Dashiel Hammet, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Agatha Christie all graced the pages of pulp collections. Therefore, if you get your hands on the right issue, it might mean you are investing in a real piece of literary history. Available on eBay, gently owned, vintage issues of popular titles like Ellery Queen, The Phantom Detective, and Doc Savage burst with story gems to be enjoyed, preserved, and passed on. Return to the roots of pop lit with plenty of pulp.
