Pulp Cover Friday Presents: Pulp Covers on Friday, Twice In A Row!
Third time lucky? Let’s see.
1937 saw some new names on DIME DETECTIVE covers, mostly importantly that of Raymond Chandler. He wrote a a number of stories for DD from 1937-1939 (and one in 1941), many of which were cannibalized for his Phillip Marlowe novels, which made him world famous.
If DIME DETECTIVE was good enough for Raymond Chandler, it’s all right by me.
Disappointingly, no one requested the Zelazny books I offered last week (the first five Amber books). I realize that it’s a busy time of the year. So busy, in fact, that I didn’t have a chance to write the first in a new series of posts (Authors Other Than Me Whom You Should Be Reading), but which I will so as soon asap. So I’m going to extend this offer for another week and pull the lucky winner out of a hopefully brimming hat next Friday.
Happy New Year to all, and thanks for coming by in 2011. I wish a healthy, peaceful, and productive 2012 for all. Thanks.
