Black Ace Books Paperback Collectors Show & Sale Sunday at the Valley Inn & Conference Center

Mar 23, 2011 by Lisa Newton

Pulp magazines were very popular in the 1930s, particularly dealing with detectives, The Shadow, and different types of spy thrillers. It was a different format when the original days of the comic book publishers were playing with different styles and formats as to what was to be popular. And these were usually wordier; they were stories rather than graphic depictions, although there was a combination. But these pulp magazines were the thrillers of the day. If anybody remembers the ‘Our Gang‘ television shows, when you see the kids walking around in their back pockets, not only with comic books but with adventure, spy thrillers in different types of formats. Pulp fiction didn’t last for very long, and it usually refers to that specific time period.

Pulp Fiction Magazines ruled the newsstands from the 1920s through World War II. Eye catching covers fronted the action packed stories of adventure of all types.

The Pulp Fiction era launched new genres of storytelling such as Science Fiction, Sword and Sorcery, and the Hardboiled Detective—and as Los Angelenos, we love Raymond Chandler.

It was also the birthplace to icons including Tarzan, Zorro and Hopalong Cassidy. And, it’s a who’s who list of authors including Dashell Hammett, Robert Heinlein, Robert E. Howard, HP Lovecraft and many, many more.

As we all know, not only did the movie “Pulp Fiction” by director Quentin Tarantino remind us of a time gone by, it retains a solid fan base and following, not to mention that it can be a both a hobby as well as an investment.

So, mark your calendars. On Sunday, March 27th from 9:00am to 5:30pm, 40 plus authors and illustrators will be on hand to autograph your book at the Los Angeles Vintage Paperback Collectors Show.  Head over to the Valley Inn and Conference Center at 10621 Sepulveda Blvd in Mission Hills. Parking is free and the admission price is a $5.00.
