Amazing Stories gave the pop culture world a lot. From the first appearance of Buck Rogers to publishing H.G. Wells’s stories on a monthly basis, Amazing Stories is one of the most important pulp books.
Launched in 1926, this early copy of Amazing Stories features stories by Wells, Jules Verne, and Ellis Parker Butler. Amazing Stories is also the first pulp magazine to focus solely on science fiction!

Dime Mystery Magazine has an interesting history. Originally called Dime Mystery Book Magazine, the pulp failed to gain the attention of readers. After 10 issues the magazine was simply renamed Dime Mystery Magazine, and the magazine would contain more short stories, giving readers more bang for their buck.
This proved to work, as the magazine lasted for 100+ issues. This beautiful copy would be perfect for both pulp and horror fans. Pulp horror covers typically go for roughly $140, making this an affordable piece of art.
Doc Savage began his illustrious publication history with Doc Savage Magazine in 1933 and has retained a long life with a healthy and dedicated fanbase.

This specific book would be great for collectors of all genres. Early Doc Savage Magazines typically sell around the $60 range, making this an affordable pulp to invest in.
Fantastic Adventures has a rather fantastic history. From almost being discontinued only to be brought back to life mere months later, publisher Ziff-Davis decided to reformat the magazine to bi-monthly which proved to work for Fantastic Adventures.
This specific book features a stunning example of good girl art. A copy recently sold for $15, making this an affordable book to own!
