Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193503121X, Paperback)

This unique collection mines the writers' mags for those rare articles in which pulp writers looked back on their careers-how they broke in, their successes and failures, the glories and hardships of the pulp racket. These are hardboiled writing stories from the Pulp Era-when the greatest time in history to sell fiction-the 1920s-was suddenly followed by one of the worst-the '30s. :: Complementing the twenty pieces are all-new profiles of the subject authors. Who were they? What weren't they telling us? What happened to them after the pulps died? We meet the writers and see how their lives were shaped by the times and the ever-shifting fortunes of the pulps. :: From all walks of life, they were as interesting as the characters they imagined-soldiers and sailors, a lumberjack, a daredevil aviator, a WWI ambulance driver, a beauty-contest emcee, a career criminal, and-why not?-the leader of a marching band. :: Some of these names are remembered today; many are not. But they all left behind fascinating and enlightening glimpses into the great days when the pulps ruled the newsstands. Included are Arthur J. Burks, Tom Curry, Steve Fisher, Hapsburg Liebe, Chuck Martin, Harold Masur, Tom Thursday, Paul Triem, Jean Francis Webb, and many others. Over 100,000 words of pulp history.
