Pulp fiction can be characterized as "fast-paced, plot-oriented storytelling of a linear nature with clearly defined, larger than life protagonists and antagonists, creative descriptions, clever use of turns of phrase and other aspects of writing that add to the intensity and pacing of the story."

The earliest pulp stories were printed in pulp magazines from 1896 through the 1950s. The term pulp derives from the cheap wood pulp paper on which the magazines were printed. Magazines printed on higher quality paper were called "glossies" or "slicks". Pulp were most often priced at ten cents per mag
