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.
Marvel Science Stories! The name alone conjures up visions of science-fiction thrills. When science fiction surged in popularity in the 1930s, Western Fiction Publishing Co., never ones to ignore a trend, jumped into the genre with both feet. Mystery Tales, Detective Mysteries, Marvel Tales and others were all part of their stable of magazine titles. Only five issues were published of Marvel Science Stories beginning with the August 1938 issue. Starting with the December 1939 issue, the title of the magazine changed to Marvel Tales for two issues and took on a "weird menace" slant, then returned to its science fiction roots under the title of Marvel Stories... for another two issues. The April 1941 issue was the final one... until the magazine was revived in late 1950. Marvel Science Stories presents a compelling view of science fiction before it truly hit its stride, written by some of pulp's most seasoned authors. Marvel Science Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
