Published by the National Library of Australia The years 1939 to 1959 constituted the golden era of Australian pulp fiction the ultimate escape Tariffs kept the local industry cheap and viable and offered careers to authors such as Carter Brown still Australia's most successful commercial author with an estimated 80 to 100 millions copies sold Yet Australian pulp fiction is now virtually unknown and without serious analysis in this country In this seminal work the third in the National Library's popular Collectors Book series Dr Toni Johnson Woods reveals the history the authors the genres the copyright issues and the lurid covers of this popular art form Who hasn't read a penny dreadful with secret enjoyment at some time in their lives?

    The collection showcases some of the local talent albeit questionable of Australian pulp fiction From westerns romance horror all the way through to crime and mystery If I were to be critical I'd have to say the distinct lack of Carter Brown covers the author does note this and provides an explanation did damper this collection somewhat However there was still plenty to enjoy accompanied by some nice historical facts about the genres authors and books themselvesAny fan of pulp should have this book in their collection 5 stars
