Just this last week I started receiving e-mails from buyers of the just-released Blood ‘n’ Thunder Guide to Pulp Fiction, and so far they’ve been uniformly positive — even glowing, in some cases. It’s always gratifying to get that sort of response to something you’ve worked hard on, and I’m hoping that the new Guide will be as successful as its predecessor, the now-out-of-print Blood ‘n’ Thunder Guide to Collecting Pulps.

Here are some random comments from folks who’ve just finished reading the book.

Rich Passatino, Atlanta GA: “Congratulations on a really excellent book. I have been reading your magazine for a couple years now so I know how much research you do, but I was totally blown away by the amount of information you were able to get into this one book.”

Thomas H. Corrigan, Charlotte NC: “Just wanted to drop a line telling you what a terrific job I think you did on the new pulp guide. I got a copy of the first one on Amazon before I knew about BnT but this one is a big improvement. . . . I knew you were adding some extra chapters on other genres but I didn’t realize you had also added stuff to the other chapters as well. . . . The cover is super well done, by the way.”

James McFadden, Monticello NY: “What I really like [about the Guide to Pulp Fiction] is when you go into specific issues of the best pulps and talk about individual stories to look for. . . . Also it was a good idea to have the list of anthologies in the back, now I have a chance to get some of these famous stories without buying the old pulps themselves.”

Kenneth Kunkel, Palmdale CA: “Very very cool book. . . . One of the things that impressed me was how many different covers you got into the book. You had a lot, hundreds even, I have never seen before.”

I’m always grateful for feedback and invite those of you who’ve read the book to send me your observations, positive and negative alike. If you’ve not yet purchased The Blood ‘n’ Thunder Guide to Pulp Fiction . . . well, what are you waiting for? You can buy the book as a standalone purchase for $29.95, but if you subscribe to BnT at the same time, you get 20 percent off cover price.

  2. This is by far the most thorough, most accurate and most compelling book ever written for pulp fans. I’ve been avidly collecting pulps for more than four decades and yet I learned enough to make me wish I had a whole lot more money for pulps! Thanks, Ed, work a marvelous work combining enthusiasm, scholarship and accessible writing.
