The Great War in the Pulps. A battle-scarred 27th issue tied to the themes of PulpFest 2018 — World War I and Grand Master of Science Fiction Philip José Farmer. Tom Krabacher takes a look at editor Arthur Sullivant Hoffman’s World War I-era ADVENTURE and how it showed that pulps could be more than just escapist fiction. There’s also an article by Hoffman himself where he recounts the creation of the original American Legion in the pages of his magazine. And illustrator and cartoonist George Evans looks back at growing up reading air-war pulps.

There’s a short biography of Farmer — written by the man himself — as well as a piece on Farmer by PulpFest 2018 Guest of Honor Joe R. Lansdale.

But that’s not all . . .

A letter by author and editor Irene Cumming Kleeberg describes her time as a college intern working summers at Popular Publications in the early 1950s. David W. Smith examines the original Suicide Squad, a team of G-Men who battled crime well before DC Comics’ super-villain team took the name. And editor William Lampkin offers a glimpse at the reading material of Fatty Arbuckle’s cellmate.

Rounding out the issue, are columns by the editor, publisher Michael Chomko, and “Final Chapters,” in which editor emeritus Tony Davis remembers those of the pulp community who have passed away during the last year.
