Pulp Science Fiction is a term that describes a period of publishing in the 1930s-1950s when science fiction magazines were published on cheap paper. These books are low on scientific ideas/real science and high on action, adventure and saving the princess sort of tropes. These days, there is a certain romanticism about the Pulp Science fiction period of the 30's to 50's. Some modern science fiction writers pay homage to what some call the start of the science fiction era.

Mythos

by H. P. Lovecraft

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."
--H. P. LOVECRAFT, "Supernatural Horror in Literature"

Howard Phillips Lovecraft forever changed the face of horror, fantasy, and science fiction with a remarkable series of stories as influential as the works of Poe, Tolkien, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. His chilling mythology established a gateway between the known universe and an ancient dimension of otherworldly terror, whose unspeakable denizens and monstrous landscapes--dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, the Plateau of Leng, the Mountains of Madness--have earned him a permanent place in the history of the macabre.

In Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, a pantheon of horror and fantasy's finest authors pay tribute to the master of the macabre with a collection of original stories set in the fearsome Lovecraft tradition:

¸  The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft: The slumbering monster-gods return to the world of mortals.
¸  Notebook Found in a Deserted House by Robert Bloch: A lone farmboy chronicles his last stand against a hungering backwoods evil.
¸  Cold Print by Ramsey Campbell: An avid reader of forbidden books finds a treasure trove of deadly volumes--available for a bloodcurdling price.
¸  The Freshman by Philip José Farmer: A student of the black arts receives an education in horror at notorious Miskatonic University.

PLUS EIGHTEEN MORE SPINE-TINGLING TALES!

Man Of Bronze

by Kenneth Robeson

The Man of Bronze's origin story is revealed in the classic Lester Dent novels that launched the superhero genre, in an extra-length volume commemorating the 75th anniversary of Doc Savage's pulp debut. First, in "The Man of Bronze", the mysterious death of his father leads Doc to the Central American republic of Hidalgo where they discover a lost Mayan empire in the mythical Valley of the Vanished. Can Doc defeat the Feathered Serpent and the Red Death and free King Chaac and the beautiful Princess Monja? Then, in "The Land of Terror", Doc Savage trails the murderous master villain Kar, who controls the deadly Smoke of Eternity, to prehistoric Thunder Island where Doc and his men fight for their very survival against terrifying dinosaurs. In honor of the Man of Bronze's 75th anniversary, this special commemorative edition reprints the classic James Bama cover painting that launched the 1960s Doc Savage revival, along with all the features of the pulp cover edition, interior illustrations by Paul Orban, a never-before-published foreword and autobiographical essay by Lester Dent, and commentary by popular culture historian Will Murray.

Amazing Stories Magazine

by Editors of People Magazine

Krishna Thompson saw the fin, felt the chomp and felt himself being pulled underwater. His first thought? "I can't believe there's a shark on my leg!" Held hostage by a bank robber, Paul Hardy grabbed the gun and fought for his life ("He started biting my hand and arm; money was flying everywhere"). Peter Beard couldn't outrun a stampeding elephant ("Her tusk went right through my thigh"), Marc Dupavillion's sloop was no match for a 70 foot wave ("The boat just lifted out of the water and got slammed on its side").
