RARA-AVIS: Re: pulp collection

Good of George Kelley to give so much material to a library--and interesting how terms change. The word "pulp" is used throughout the article," but (if the article is compehensive) he had early paperbacks and digests. The term "dime novel" went through a similar watering down early in this century--from meaning a specific type of publication to a pharse for any type of cheap fiction.
