These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook.
Sports thrills, ripped from the burning pages of one of the all-time great sports magazines of the 1930s, Sports Novels! Magazines containing sports fiction were one of the staples of the pulp magazines, becoming popular in the early 1920s and by the mid-1930s there were over two dozen titles on the newsstands. In early 1937, Popular Publications decided to enter the lucrative field of the sports fiction magazines. The April-May 1937 issue of Sports Novels hit the newsstands in late March, featuring an eye-catching baseball cover. For the next fifteen years, each issue featured stories of football, boxing, baseball, hockey, track, basketball, tennis and hockey. Nearly every sport imaginable was represented in the long-running magazine. It continued publishing for a total of eighty-five issues until the April 1952 issue, when pulp magazines were in their waning days. Vintage Sports Novels are now being reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
