The Pulp Magazines Project is an open-access digital archive dedicated to the study and preservation of one of the twentieth century's most influential literary & artistic forms: the all-fiction pulpwood magazine. The Project also provides information on the history of this important but long neglected medium, along with biographies of pulp authors, artists, and their publishers.All that is wonderful, of course, but the best part is that lots of the pulp magazines from the very early twentieth century (if not earlier) have been digitally reproduced there and whole copies of the magazine can be leafed through and read page-by-page. These old magazines are fascinating even if you do nothing but read the advertising inside them.
I will warn you that the PDF versions of the magazines seem to take forever to open up. The FlipBook versions, on the other hand, open up very quickly.
I can already see that I'm going to be spending a considerable amount of time on the site. If you enjoy this kind of thing, take a look here. When you get to the homepage, just click where it says "Magazines in the Project Archive."
