Naked Pulp no. three (2019)
(124 pages / adult content / this issue only in glorious black and white) From the author of Cool TV of the 1960s and Strange New World: Sex Films of the 1970s, the third edition of Naked Pulp, an occasional collection of art, articles, and images that features sci-fi, super-hero, sex, horror, and action films, retro cult TV, American comics, and animation.
The biggest, the boldest, the most comprehensive collection of Pulp writing ever assembled. Weighing in at over a thousand pages, containing over forty-seven stories and two novels, this book is big baby, bigger and more powerful than a freight train—a bullet couldn’t pass through it.
13 disturbing, digestible gobbets of fiction from one of the contributors of the horror anthology “Slices of Flesh”. Here you will find aberrations, apparitions, and a bedeviled sandwich which isn’t so digestible after all. An homage to the Lovecraftian and the kind of fun shlock from the horror comics of ages back. These are the kind of tales that will stick with you long after you’ve read them so if you decide to dig in, you might have difficulty digging back out.

Daisy Bacon, the opinionated, autocratic and complex editor of Love Story Magazine from 1928 to 1947, chose the stories that would be read by hundreds of thousands of readers each week.

68 pages. Full color throughout. Articles on Guy N Smith’s occult investigator Sabat, the books of Daniel Farson the nephew of Bram Stoker, the underappreciated short stories of Tom Reamy, a gallery of wild German horror pulps in Grusel-Krimi, crocodile attack pulp fiction, rare New English Library cover art and Joseph Payne Brennan.
Nothing’s sweeter than a fruitful family business, and for Winona Mae Montgomery and her Granny Smythe, that means Smythe Orchards in Blossom Valley, Virginia.
