Have you been over to Lots Of Pulp?

So since I got some of my new readers hip to Arresting Tales, here is another site that you all might want to check out called "Lots Of Pulp." This blog has covers from the Golden Age of Pulp up on through into the 50's. We're talking every genre; action, romance, westerns, crime, science fiction, and even some subgenres that you probably weren't aware of. Covers such as these-

"Call me Mike?" With a huge bejeweled turban and a silk outfit like that, wouldn't you rather be called "Rajah" or "Maharajah?" Okay, okay, put the sword away, we'll call you "Mike!"

The robots of the world did not take kindly to Doris Dingleheim's panning of the special edition of "Metropolis."

It was inevitable, but there was nothing that any of us could do to stop it. Eventually Kanye West's ego became so large that it consumed us all.

Fredrick Bumbry was quite the scientist and eventually he discovered a way to take the manssiere to its ultimate level.

OK, that last one made me snort out loud and scare the dogs!

Terrific covers. As you can imagine, I love this stuff, and was definitely born in the wrong era.

Sky Dad,

I'm sorry for the dogs, yet happy that men will know support, too.


To me B-Sol has the best pulp cover site by far.

Look at this way, this is our era, because you can put up a fine mag like BTAP and not go broke doing it. It wasn't like boys at Black Mask were swimming in dough like Scrouge McDuck.

Really? None of you remember Mike? He followed Suleiman the Magnificent. Know your history. Sheesh.

So your contention was that Selim The Second wanted to be called "Mike?" Hmmm, better than "Mipsy" or "Snuggles, The Fiercest Hugger in the known world."
