Overview

"Encyclopedia of Pulp Fiction Writers is the first reference book of its kind to bring together the famous and lesser-known writers who shaped popular literature. From best-selling authors to "underground" wordsmiths, more than 200 entries profile the inventors of such genres as the western, hardboiled detective novel, spy thriller, science fiction, horror, legal thriller, crime fiction, and romance novel." Surveying brand-name legends and obscure or forgotten authors, each entry presents a brief biography and a list of the author's writing credits, including works written under pseudonyms. Complete with cross-references, an index, and a bibliography, and enhanced by photos of writers as well as by illustrations of vintage book and magazine covers, Encyclopedia of Pulp Fiction Writers is equally satisfying for historians, students, fans of popular fiction, and general readers.
