Welcome on this blog with Pulp and old Magazines.You can access the files through the sidebar.


You can find not only pulp but also other old magazines from all kind of subjects.

Also there will be British Storypapers.

And last but not least different books from different authors and subjects.

Everything is from before 1970.



Pulp magazines (often referred to as “the pulps”) were inexpensive fiction magazines that were published from 1896 to the 1950s. The term pulp derives from the cheap wood pulp paper on which the magazines were printed. In contrast, magazines printed on higher-quality paper were called “glossies” or “slicks”. The typical pulp magazine had 128 pages; it was 7 inches (18 cm) wide by 10 inches (25 cm) high, and 0.5 inches (1.3 cm) thick, with ragged, untrimmed edges.

The pulps gave rise to the term pulp fiction in reference to run-of-the-mill, low-quality literature. Pulps were the successors to the penny dreadfuls, dime novels, and short-fiction magazines of the 19th century. Although many respected writers wrote for pulps, the magazines were best known for their lurid, exploitative, and sensational subject matter. Modern superhero comic books are sometimes considered descendants of “hero pulps”; pulp magazines often featured illustrated novel-length stories of heroic characters, such as The Shadow, Doc Savage, and The Phantom Detective.


A story paper is a periodical publication similar to a literary magazine, but featuring illustrations and text stories, and aimed towards children and teenagers. Also known in Britain as ‘Boys’ Weeklies’, story papers were phenomenally popular before the outbreak of the Second World War.

Among the most well-known British story paper was Boy’s Own Paper, which ran from 1879 to 1967.

The first known edition of what would later become known as a “story paper” was The Young Gentleman’s Magazine, published in 1777. The first story paper to really take off was The Boys’ and Girls’ Penny Magazine, first published in September 1832.

In 1866, Charles Stephens began selling Boys of England on the English streets for a penny—the first “penny dreadful”. Story papers in this style minimized the expense of writing in order to produce an extremely cheap product. Strictly speaking, the “penny dreadful” died off by the turn of the century, but this term was still used to refer to story papers throughout their history. The Halfpenny Marvel, first published in 1893, was “founded to counteract the pernicious influences of the Penny Dreadfuls”, according to its title page. A book about these weeklies (also called “bloods” because of their savage contents) was created in 1948 by E. S. Turner, called Boys Will be Boys.

  3. Hi, what a great site! However, all is great when a file turns out to be a pdf but everything else is more difficult. What on earth do I do with a .cbr file? I’ve tried converting but the result isn’t recognised or it appears as a ZIP?? Can you help, please.


    1. You can read cbr or cbz with comicreaders like CDisplayEx, but i work with a desktop with Windows OS, so i can’t tell for other devices or systems.


    2. You need to get an app for your computer that reads cbr and cbz files. There are plenty of them around. I use one called Comicana myself but there are others to chose from.
