|Intl. Notebook||Oct 5 2012|
We’re excited today. The international mails worked as advertised and we have secured a new stack of Adam magazines, which you know, if you follow this site, is our favorite of the post-pulp publications. It was launched in Sydney, Australia by Kenneth Gordon Murray, whose company K.G. Murray Publishing also produced Man, Man Junior, Foxylady, Eves From Adam, Laughs and Lovelies, Girls and Gags, and a raft of comic book titles as well. We had been looking for more K.G. Murray output for more than a year, but the prices were simply too high on the few items we found. This batch, we think, was fairly priced. Since the last issue we bought disappeared into the postal ether, we had little hope that a package this size would arrive safely. But arrive it did, and perhaps it teaches a lesson—maybe people are afraid to steal bigger packages because it seems more likely to produce consequences. Just a theory. Incidentally, we’re not putting down our lovely hosts here. We never had more mail disappear than when we lived in the U.S. and worked at a certain famous company that has a bunny logo. Instead of the company name, we used PEGI on those packages—that’s how likely our mail was to vanish otherwise. Anyway, look for many more appearances from Adam on Pulp Intl. to go with our already large collection—24 issues posted and counting. See those by starting here.
