More Pulp Fiction

Pulp magazines (often referred to as "the pulps") are inexpensive fiction magazines that were published from 1896 to the 1950s. The term pulp derives from the cheap wood pulp paper on which the magazines were printed; in contrast, magazines printed on higher quality paper were called "glossies" or "slicks".

  1. The covers of pulp fiction books were fantastic. The titles were creative but the subtitles were often the best. If they're read with a critical eye, they clearly show the cultural brain-washing being done on the public. Most often, it was religion which was shaming people into compliance and conformity.
