PEOPLE The Pulp Magazine Archive Pulp magazines often referred to as "the pulps"also collectively known as pulp fiction, refers to inexpensive fiction magazines published from through the s.
The typical pulp magazine was seven inches wide by ten inches high, half an inch thick, and pages long. Pulps were printed on cheap paper with ragged, untrimmed edges.
The name pulp comes from the cheap wood pulp paper on which the magazines were printed. Magazines printed on better paper were called "glossies" or "slicks. Pulps were the successor to the penny dreadfuls, dime novels, and short fiction magazines of the 19th century.
Although many respected writers wrote for pulps, the magazines are best remembered for their lurid and exploitative stories and sensational cover art. Modern superhero comic books are sometimes considered descendants of "hero pulps"; pulp magazines often featured illustrated novel-length stories of heroic characters, such as The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Phantom Detective.
The first "pulp" was Frank Munsey's revamped Argosy Magazine ofaboutwords pages per issue on pulp paper with untrimmed edges and no illustrations, not even on the cover.
While the steam-powered printing press had been in widespread use for some time, enabling the boom in dime novels, prior to Munsey, no one had combined cheap printing, cheap paper and cheap authors in a package that provided affordable entertainment to working-class people.
In six years Argosy went from a few thousand copies per month to over half a million.
A dime novel and boys' weekly publisher, they saw Argosy's success, and in launched The Popular Magazine, billed as the "biggest magazine in the world" by virtue of being two pages longer than Argosy.
Due to differences in page layout, the magazine had substantially less text than Argosy. The Popular Magazine introduced color covers to pulp publishing. The magazine began to take off when, inthe publishers acquired the rights to serialize Ayesha, by H.
Rider Haggard, a sequel to his popular novel She. Howard, Talbot Mundy and Abraham Merritt. Inthe cover price rose to 15 cents and 30 pages were added to each issue; along with establishing a stable of authors for each magazine, this change proved successful and circulation began to approach that of Argosy.
Street and Smith's next innovation was the introduction of specialized genre pulps, each magazine focusing on a genre such as detective stories, romance, etc.
At their peak of popularity in the s and s, the most successful pulps could sell up to one million copies per issue. Although pulp magazines were primarily a US phenomenon, there were also a number of British pulp magazines published between the Edwardian era and World War Two.
The German fantasy magazine Der Orchideengarten had a similar format to American pulp magazines, in that it was printed on rough pulp paper and heavily illustrated. The Second World War paper shortages had a serious impact on pulp production, starting a steady rise in costs and the decline of the pulps.
Beginning with Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine inpulp magazines began to switch to digest size; smaller, thicker magazines. In a more affluent post-war America, the price gap compared to slick magazines was far less significant.
In the s, Men's adventure magazines began to replace the pulp. The liquidation of the American News Company, then the primary distributor of pulp magazines, has sometimes been taken as marking the end of the "pulp era"; by that date, many of the famous pulps of the previous generation, including Black Mask, The Shadow, Doc Savage, and Weird Tales, were defunct.
Almost all of the few remaining pulp magazines are science fiction or mystery magazines now in formats similar to "digest size", such as Analog Science Fiction and Fact and Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine.
The format is still in use for some lengthy serials, like the German science fiction weekly Perry Rhodan. Over the course of their evolution, there were a huge number of pulp magazine titles; Harry Steeger of Popular Publications claimed that his company alone had published overand at their peak they were publishing 42 titles per month.
Many titles of course survived only briefly. While the most popular titles were monthly, many were bimonthly and some were quarterly.
The collapse of the pulp industry changed the landscape of publishing because pulps were the single largest sales outlet for short stories.
Combined with the decrease in slick magazine fiction markets, writers attempting to support themselves by creating fiction switched to novels and book-length anthologies of shorter pieces. Pulp covers were printed in color on higher-quality slick paper.70 page X 11 college lined notebook.
