Pulp Reprints

 

 

         

 

 

Pulp Reprints generally fall into two categories: The first is usually small-press releases of single stories or novels (most often reproduced as cheaply as possible). The second type consists whole-magazine reproductions, such as the ones seen here, from Adventure House, in Silver Spring, MD. Theses are bold, bright, flashy magazines, well bound over-sized paperbacks (slightly larger than the original magazines), and appear to be very faithfully reproduced, right down to the advertisements. Most Adventure House reprints are released for about $15, but if you're a wise shopper, you might be able to find them for less on ABE and Amazon. But here's a warning: This was pure escapism for depression-era adult readers. Don't expect literary works of art in these stories. I think they're a lot of fun, though.
