For a quarter of a century, pulp magazines were the most popular entertainment medium in America. Read by everyone from schoolchildren to businessmen, their contents ranged from hard-boiled detective yarns to sci-fi to syrupy love stories. Their sensational and often lurid cover illustrations were considered low-grade trash by the literary and artistic standards of their day, but time has a funny way of changing things. Now the original illustrations fetch thousands of dollars at auctions.
