What readers are saying
Spanning the gamut of what Pulp Literature used to be, it can be argued that the magazine contains something for everyone. In truth it is much more than that. Much of what constituted pulp literature back in the day was formulaic hack work, though good enough to entertain the expectations of readers who were just looking for a bit of escapist fun. The contents of Pulp Literature magazine are typically of much higher quality, both original and well written, such as to delight the discerning reader. The magazine is not so much a deliberate revival of a past art form as a further evolution of the basic concept. A literary interpretation if you will, but done without losing sight of the goal of having fun. It is quite the high wire act, yet the editors accomplish it with considerable skill and panache. Though my tastes are narrower than the range of material presented I find myself reading everything between the covers. It is indeed a good book for the price of a beer.
