Pulp magazines, aka “the pulps” were cheap magazines, offering mostly bad fiction, that existed from around 1896 to the late 1950s. How did it earn its “pulp” name? They were printed on wood pulp paper to cut costs. Nothing glossy about pulp paper.
Pulp fiction became the nickname for this form of mediocre, often exploitation, low-brow literature. The genre evolved from penny dreadfuls and dime novels and, was the forerunner of the comic book and graphic novel.
A few well-known writers actually earned income by contributing to these magazines.
What really makes pulp literature stand out is its cover art work. These covers often convey lust, deceit, murder, taboo sex, lost innocence, horrible crimes, all kinds of vice, suspense and lots of action! Who can resist that?
“Quickie” conveys all kinds of real and imagined sins. Its tag line reads: “Oh what a girl was Quickie!”
