Pulp Fiction Project

Pulp Fiction is a term used to describe a flood creative writing available to the American public in the early nineteen-hundreds. Mainstream publishers packaged the cheap paperbacks to be sold in train and bus stations, dimestores, drugstores, grocery stores, and newsstands. Between these pages they published fantastic, escapist fiction, campy by today’s standards, for the general entertainment of a mass audience. At a time when television wasn’t widely available, much of the free time of the working literate class was spent pouring through the pages of the pulps.
