Those Western pulps, where men were dead shots, women were dangerous, and thieving wranglers were lynched until the cows came home.
Rediscover three decades of Western pulps in the first documentation of the genre's writers and importance in American popular culture. These short novels featured bad men in need of killing, and more affection between the cowboy and his horse than with women.
Pulp authors included Zane Grey, who authored as many as 200 pulps and famed Texas Ranger Captain Manuel T. Gonzaullas. There were more than 165 of these magazines to choose from, such as Ace High Weekly, Zane Grey's Western Story Magazine, and Texas Rangers.
"The Pulp Western is a seminal work in the field, filled with fascinating information about the magazines, their contents, their editors and the most popular writers and characters."- J. Randolph Cox for Dime Novel Round-Up
