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.
During the science-fiction boom of the 1930s, there were over a dozen pulp magazines dedicated to the subject. Analog, Startling Stories, Amazing Stories, Wonder Stories, Captain Future and Super Science Stories were just a few. In 1939, the pulp magazine publisher of Jungle Stories, and many others, added its own entry into the sci-fi field, Planet Stories. Until it folded in 1955, it published ground-breaking science fiction from some of the genre's brightest stars, including such luminaries as Ray Cummings, Frederic Arnold Kummer, Jr., Eando Binder, Leight Bracket, Isaac Asimov, Clifford D. Simak, Henry Kuttner, Ray Bradbury, Frederik Pohl, James Blish, A.E. van Vogt, Theodore Sturgeon, Alan E. Nourse and Robert Sheckley. Planet Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
