User Review  - Ed - Goodreads

I browsed this picture book of the pulp magazines. The text is interesting as are the illustrations (great pulp covers) and photos. Some inside stories of pulp writers like Lester Dent (of Doc Savage fame) are included. This is the sort of book a pulp magazine collector might enjoy. Read full review
