Amy | 8 comments If you are looking for some great information on the authors and stories from the Pulp Fiction Magazine era, I find that the Internet Speculative Fiction Database is extremely helpful!

It doesn't provide copies but it does have a lot of great information.

Amy | 8 comments No problem. Its one of my favorite resources. One of the things I love about the Pulp Fiction magazines is how many of the authors were incredibly prolific.

There used to be a used book store in Baltimore that had a huge attic full of old pulps for a dime each. Most weren't in great shape, but still had a read or two left in them. Unfortunately, the neighborhood changed & they went out of business along with two others next door.

I walked over there one day (it wasn't too far from the hospital where my wife was getting a procedure done) & passed a new library that had been trashed. I went around the corner to where the book stores were & there were people passed out on the street. One was leaning up against the old book store with a needle sticking out of her arm. A cop walked up to me & asked me what I was doing. I told him as he hustled me out of there. He thought I was nuts.
