Pulp fiction played a central role in twentieth-century literature and popular culture. Launched in 2011 by University of Pennsylvania English professor Patrick Scott Belk, the Pulp Magazines Project allows visitors to explore pulp magazines that are currently in the public domain. This collection includes titles published between 1900 and 1940, including The Argosy (considered to be the first pulp magazine), Weird Tales: The Unique Magazine, and The Green Book Magazine. The Pulp Magazines Project features original essays, along with outside resources and archival material that provide additional context into pulp magazines and their impact. For instance, in the contexts section of this website, visitors will find a 1938 article originally published in Scribner Magazine about "The Love Pulps," which the magazine terms "the escape literature of three million maidens."
