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.
Pulp readers could never seem to get enough of the detective titles. To meet that insatiable demand, Fiction House, well-known for Planet Stories and Jungle Stories, debuted a new magazine in Fall 1938 entitled Bull's-Eye Detective. It featured a standard mix of crime drama, murder mystery and general detective fiction. The stories, authored by the large stable of Fiction House writers, were solid, well-written tales of hard-bitten gumshoes, gang molls and crime bosses. But for pulp magazine readers, there was nothing to make it stand out among the other similar titles in a very large field. Sadly, it failed to sell enough newsstand copies to justify continuing, and it ceased publication after only three issues with the Fall 1939 issue. A sad demise to a very competent detective series. Bull's-Eye Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
