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 pulps were some of the most popular magazines of the 1930s and 1940s. Every publisher generally had at least two such titles on their roster. Thrilling Publications had Black Book Detective, Detective Book Magazine, Masked Detective, Popular Detective, Thrilling Detective and the Phantom Detective. But apparently that wasn't enough, so in the fall of 1940, they introduced another title, Exciting Detective. It promised readers “fast-moving, dynamite-packed, up-to-the-minute novels, novelets and stories that carry a high-powered punch!" Unfortunately, their timing was bad; America would soon be embroiled in World War II. So, despite boasting a top-notch stable of mystery writers, the magazine was fated to only last 15 issues. Sadly, the wartime paper shortages took their toll, and the last issue was published in the Summer of 1943. Exciting Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
