? Afterword on the history of pulp paperbacks
A young and ardent girl, Chris Hamilton was also an incredibly handsome one. You would hardly have suspected her of harboring powerful hungers and unconventional desires?unless you knew of her love affair with another woman, a lovely blonde appropriately named Dizz.
Dizz accepted the advances of Chris, yet withheld her love. Deliberately, perhaps to torment Chris, she allowed herself an affair with a man. She behaved so coldly, so harshly, Chris could not keep herself from spending her weekends in one-night-stands searching for tenderness and love. Chris seemed sure to turn to another woman? and then she met the sweet Carol Martin.
Carol fell hard for Chris, unaware that Chris was struggling to break her binds to Dizz. Was there any escape for Chris? Could she break away from the emotional web that seemed too complicated to break? Could she heal herself with work, with the tender embraces of Carole? Or would she deny herself a chance at true love by spending her nights in the arms of different women? The answer is disclosed in this delicate yet unblushingly frank novel?which courageously dispels the mists shrouding unconventional love!
About Lesbian Pulp Fiction:
A new revolution was underway at the start of the 1940s in America?a paperback revolution that would change the way publishers would produce and distribute books and the reading public would consume them. In 1939 a new publishing company?Pocket Books?stormed onto the scene with the publication of its first paperbound book. Unlike hardback books, these pulp paperbacks were inexpensive and readily available everywhere. The American public could not get enough of them.
During the 1940s, mysteries and romances were the hot sellers. In the early 1950s, new pulp fiction subgenres emerged?science fiction, westerns, gay & lesbian fiction, juvenile delinquent and ?sleaze?, for instance?that would tantalize readers with gritty, realistic and lurid stories never seen before. Publishers soon came to realize that sex sells. In a competitive frenzy for readers, they turned from straightforward "tasteful" cover images to alluring covers that frequently featured a sexy woman in some form of undress, along with a suggestive tag line that promised stories of sex and violence within the covers. To this day, the pulp cover art of these vintage paperback books is just as sought after as the books themselves were sixty years ago.
We are excited to make these wonderful pulp fiction stories available in ebook format to new generations of readers, as a new revolution?the ebook revolution?is in full swing. We hope you will enjoy this nostalgic look back at a period in American history when dames were dangerous, tough-guys were deadly and dolls were downright delicious.
