Learning From the Pulp Masters

Learning From the Pulp MastersThis is just another compilation of notes I had left over from research. Cutting-room floor pieces.

I got into studying the pulp-magazine era authors with Lester Dent while I was studying the conventional wisdom of “plotting”.

This last find, of H. Bedford-Jone’s “This Fiction Business” is so conclusive that very little else is needed. There, he tells the variety of issues that authors of his day encountered.

This book is a companion piece to that book and so doesn’t need to repeat any of his jocular description of how he made a very good living writing and selling stories during that age.

Good luck with this.
