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.
Death strikes in the night! Murder inside a locked room! For thrills, chills and action galore, readers of the 1930s, 1940s and into the 1950s clamored for a pulp magazine by the name of Thrilling Detective. Thrilling Detective magazine was one of the earliest pulp answers to America's insatiable appetite for mystery and detective tales. It was the first of Ned Pines's long line of pulp magazines, starting in 1931 and running for an amazing 213 issues before closing down in the Summer of 1953. Thrilling Publications was responsible for other long-running pulps such as Startling Stories, The Lone Eagle, Black Book Detective and Thrilling Wonder Stories. Famous pulp characters The Phantom Detective, Captain Future, the Black Bat and Captain Danger, all appeared in other Thrilling publications.
Each Thrilling Detective magazine started off with a book-length mystery novel, and then was followed up by a half-dozen or so shorter stories of thrills and danger. Appearing solely in Thrilling Detective were recurring characters like Doctor Coffin, The Green Ghost, Craig Kennedy, Raffles, G-Man Jones, Mike Shayne, Race Williams and Mr. Death. Some of America's most foremost writers took up their pens to write for the magazine. Names like Arthur J. Burks, Wayne Rogers, H.M. Appel, George Allan Moffatt, Norman A. Daniels, Johnston McCulley, George Fielding Eliot, L. Ron Hubbard, Paul Ernst, Emile C. Tepperman, Edmond Hamilton, Laurence Donovan, Ralph Oppenheim, Robert Sidney Bowen, Henry Kuttner, Murray Leinster, Fredric Brown, Brett Halliday, Carroll John Daly, Louis L'Amour and Bruce Elliott. Thrilling Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
