From the early days of dime novels to the contemporary mass-market paperbacks, pulp fiction is a vital part of popular culture. Encyclopedia of Pulp Fiction Writers is the first book to bring the scores of well-known and unsung heroes of pop literature into one volume.

Encyclopedia of Pulp Fiction Writers covers the entire spectrum of pop literature’s greatest entertainers and artists, the multimillion-copy bestsellers, and the inventors of the modern genres, such as the western, the hardboiled detective novel, the spy thriller, science fiction, horror, the legal thriller, crime fiction, and the erotic/romance novel. The book also profiles colorful but lesser-known underground figures, as well as a wide variety of talented paperback authors who were never given their due. Each of the 200 entries includes a brief biography along with a list of the author’s writing credits.

Authors covered include:

  • V.C. Andrews
  • Ray Bradbury
  • Jackie Collins
  • Lester Dent
  • Ian Fleming
  • Erle Stanley Gardner
  • David Goodis
  • Zane Grey
  • Chester Himes
  • Louis L’Amour
  • H.P. Lovecraft
  • Mario Puzo
  • Jacqueline Susann
  • and many more.
