VINTAGE PULP FICTION COVERS REVISTED…

IN MY WORLD, BOOK COVERS ARE A LOT LIKE FACEBOOK. I GET SUCKED IN WHILE LOOKING AT THEM AND CAN’T STOP.  I THOUGHT THESE WERE PARTICULARLY ATROCIOUS  INTERESTING.

Pulp fiction #3

Thank goodness, it’s complete and unabridged. I wouldn’t want to miss a single word of what looks like a fascinating novel.

I suppose it all depends on one’s definition of tasteful.

    Reblogged this on Bryn Donovan and commented:
    I have an abiding and not-quite-ironic love for old pulp fiction covers. These are great.

  2. bryndonovan says:

    Ohh, these are priceless.

    “As Related to Ben Sarto by Jack Richmond”… what?

    I suspect the first one is death by sexual objectification. Haha I rather like that Experience with Evil one. They’re in the middle of nowhere and she has a dress that makes her look a bit like a cactus, plus a gun! She is in control!

    Seriously, these covers are awesome, Diana! I grew up in the 70s when my mom used to pick up pulp mags for me at the supermarket. I used to get lost in them, reading them over and over until the pages were worn and the cover was falling apart. Of all of them, the private dick ones and westerns were the best. I can’t tell you how much these covers you’ve featured bring back memories of my childhood. So good!

  5. Priceless, Diana. Grabbing and ripping wasn’t enough. He had to Mangle as well; after all, look what that punk did to Dotty!! lol 😉 I agree with Jack, this brought back memories of my childhood. Where I lived, (very rural) we didn’t have a library. We had a bus that visited. I remember renting books like this and reading every last word. Lord help me. lol 😉 Sharing this bit of nostalgia now!!

  6. I’ve been watching old B & W film noir movies and they (like these book covers) are simply awful. But there is something about them that remains alluring–I watch if only for the opportunity to riff at the silliness and, yes, the misogyny!
