Dangerous Dames. Authors and pulp historians Ron Goulart and Bill Pronzini look at the few female detectives from the pulps, and women authors whose fiction could be found on the pages of the detective pulps. A profile of Robert Bloch. Detective Fiction Weekly. Horror author and poet Mary Elizabeth Counselman. And very cool full color ads from pulp publishers and dealers illustrating all the best new and old pulp artwork.
As for the psychos angle, how about author Robert Bloch? He’s best known these days for writing the 1959 novel on which Alfred Hitchcock based his classic movie, Psycho. But before that, Bloch got his professional writing start in the pulp magazines. His first sale was made to Weird Tales, naturally. Professor Garyn Roberts profiles Bloch, and looks at the novel Psycho.
Tony Davis, editor emeritus of The Pulpster, writes about horror author and poet Mary Elizabeth Counselman, with whom he corresponded during the late 1970s and early ’80s.
In addition to articles about the pulps and their creators, The Pulpster also features an article by Curt Phillips offering tips on preserving your collection of the aging pulpwood magazines.
Rounding out the issue are columns by editor Lampkin, publisher Michael Chomko, and “Final Chapters,” in which editor emeritus Davis remembers those of the pulp community who have recently passed away.
