This is an La Trobe eBureau publication by Stuart Kells.
The book explores the little-known pulp publishing scene in Australia, popular during the middle parts of the 20th century. Stuart examines the circumstances that gave rise to this field of ‘low literature’; the major publishers, artists, and authors; and the different expressions of pulp genre – crime, westerns, sci-fi, romance and ‘weird tales’. Filled with vividly illustrated covers, it provides a valuable record of mostly overlooked Australian writers and the culture surrounding their production.
