|Intl. Notebook||Nov 1 2008|
Yes, twenty-three years ago it was (we keep updating this number). We were kids who didn’t know squat about print publishing and now we’re older and we don’t know squat about web publishing. But we hope Pulp International manages to entertain. It’s a bit different from our old Pulp, but it’s similar in many ways too. It's also different from the textbook defnintion of pulp, but we're going with a personal take on the art form. We’ll be looking for pulp everywhere—certainly in the accepted places such as vintage magazines and books, but we'll also be posting old tabloids, memorabilia, and various types of ephemera. We'll be looking at movies from the blaxploitation, sexploitation, film noir, horror, sci-fi, and psychedelia genres. And we’ll even be looking for pulp events—that is, real-world occurences with a touch of deceit, corruption, or the fantastic, because those too fit what we're trying to do. So there you go. Nothing is permanent, and this site won’t be either, but as long as it’s fun, and you enjoy it, we’ll be here. Welcome to Pulp Intl.
