*********** A lot of people, including some close to the genre, have an expanded idea of pulp that encompasses a style more than a time period and cheap paper. There's a
"pulp" collection (MAMMOTH BOOK OF PULP FICTION?) that contains fiction written long after the end of WWII.

But heck with trivial stuff like that. I just ordered a book called DIME DETECTIVES by a guy named Goulart. That should be the real thing! Hope it's good. Any comments on it?
