> I stumbled upon this fun book while browsing in a small bookshop: The
> Classic Era of American Pulp Magazines by Peter Haining(ISBN 1-85375-
> 388-2)publisher: Prion. This is a UK publisher.)
> The book is richly illustrated with covers from the early 1900's
> onward. Most of these are American pulps, but there is a sizable
> section devoted to British pulps.The text examines the various kinds
> of pulps (fantasy, sci-fi, crime,etc.) and how they developed. The
> book sums up the kind of content contained in specific publications.
> There's an appendix at the back devoted to 'The Pulp Wordsmiths' with
> brief paragraphs about numerous authors.
> Besides being a good book for any pulp afficionado, I also find this
> jumpstarts story ideas.
> I love this stuff!
