I'm passing on another question from Toni Johnson-Woods, the Australian academic. Drop her a quick note if you know the answer.

| From: Dr Toni Margaret JOHNSON-WOODS < t.johnsonwoods@uq.edu.au>
| Could you please ask the pundits who know all --I've read somewhere that
| une jaune (French) and un giallo (Italian) are shorthand for "pulp
| fiction" ie mass produced fiction of the 1940s, 1950s ie Carter Brown
| and ilk (not nec pulp magazine fiction)? Can anyone confirm? deny?
| Second, does anyone know if there are other names ie German, Spanish
| etc??? Probably private replies are best???
| Thanks so much.
