Pulp: A Collector's Book of Australian Pulp Fiction Covers

Front Cover
National Library Australia, 2004 - Australia - 104 pages
In the 1940s and 1950s, Australian pulp fiction jostled with magazines and comics at newsstands. Tariffs kept the local industry cheap and viable and offered Australian writers national and international careers. Today, Australian pulp fiction is all but forgotten. In this seminal work, the third in the National Librarya s popular a Collectora s Booka series, Toni-Johnson-Woods reveals the history, the authors, the genres and the lurid covers of this once-popular literary form.

Very interesting look at the Australian pulp era, when yank stuff was banned. My favorite cover would have to be 'Death Is A Trotter'. http://freesf.strandedinoz.com/wordpress/2012/04/pulp-a-collectors-book-of-australian-pulp-fiction-covers-toni-johnson-woods/ Read full review
