Discover the true, behind-the-scenes history of Pulp Fiction and the Golden age of Sci Fi, Fantasy and Adventure, in this amazing fact filled documentary. American Library Association - Booklist Review: Pulp fiction (named for the low-quality paper on which the stories were printed) blossomed in the early twentieth century. Audiences (beaten down after WWI and the Great Depression) sought tales with strong heroes, exciting adventures, and alien encounters. This entertaining program traces the golden years of pulps, beginning in the 1920's, by highlighting numerous writers (including Erle Stanley Gardner and Edgar Rice Burroughs who turned out hundreds of stories. In interviews, popular and prolific authors Ray Bradbury and Frederik Pohl recall nominal pay, short deadlines, and insatiable demand for copy. Original cover art featuring beautiful women, space creatures, and blazing weapons, as well as B-movie clips, enhance the coverage. Facing competition from movies, paperback books, and television, the demand for pulp fiction dwindled in the 1950s. However, many works have been recently reprinted for readers seeking escapist fiction. Featuring Tim Powers, Kevin J. Anderson, Otto Penzler, Ray Bradbury, Frederik Pohl and Marc Zicree. Bonus Features include 2 hours of uncut bonus interviews with: Ray Bradbury, Frederik Pohl and Marc Zicree, as well as the film: Writers and Illustrators of the Future. Additional bonus feature: Comes with a DVD-Rom Pulp Fiction Graphic Art Archive and Computer Screen Art.
