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.
Double-action thrills in the world of crime! Double the hard-hitting thrills. Double the hard-hitting action. Gats spewing hot lead, homicidal dames and quick-triggered weasels all mix with the seamy side of the city. This pulp magazine focused on gritty private eye tales and made its debut in October 1938. It came from Blue Ribbon Magazines, an arm of Columbia Publications, the same folks that brought you Double-Action Gang Magazine, Double-Action Western Magazine, Detective Yarns, Black Hood Detective, Future Fantasy and Science Fiction, Western Yarns, Sky Raiders and quite a few others. The magazine closed after 8 issues, with the October 1940 issue. Double Action Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
