Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
Detective magazines were some of the most popular reading material during the era of the pulp magazines. In late 1949, Ned Pines, publisher of Thrilling Publications, also known as Standard Magazines, Better Magazines, and Beacon Magazines, added a new entry into an already crowded field of whodunnit magazines. The unique feature of 5 Detective Novels, was the inclusion of five complete novels in a single pulp magazine. Admittedly, the definition of "novel" was stretched a bit, but even at 20,000 words per novel, the 25¢ magazine required 144 pages, much thicker than the normal pulp. In those pages could be found some of the best detective fiction writers in the field: Arthur J. Burks, H.M. Appel, Norman A. Daniels, George Fielding Eliot, Paul Ernst, Edmond Hamilton, Ralph Oppenheim, Robert Sidney Bowen, Fredric Brown, among others. After 17 issues, 5 Detective novels closed publication with the Fall 1953 issue. 5 Detective Novels returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
