New on “to borrow”, a scan of Pulp fiction of the ’20s and ’30s (2013). The press appear to have kept it in hardcover only, according to Amazon UK, and it’s now thoroughly out-of-print there. No sign of it on eBay either. Thus, it looks like I’m not dinging anyone’s wallet by linking to it here. The contents include, among others…

* On Pulp Fiction and Weird Tales

* Robert E. Howard and the Creation of the Sword-and-Sorcery Sub-genre

* Cthulhu’s Empire: H.P. Lovecraft’s Influence on His Contemporaries and Successors (Joshi)

* Nostalgia in H.P. Lovecraft

* Henry Kuttner: Often-Overlooked Pillar of the Weird Tale

* The Fantastic Pulp Fiction of Frank Belknap Long
