BUYING PULP MAGAZINES
Updated February, 2011

Collecting Pulp Magazines has been my hobby for over 40 years. My main interest is 'Pulp' magazines, published between 1923 through about 1954. As I unfortunately read only English, my interest is confined to those published in the U.S., Canada, and Britain. If you have any of these to sell, I am always in the market to purchase collections, large and small. Check my buying prices below.
We also buy Vintage Paperback Book Collections. Email a listing of your collection for my offer.
Visit our companian Paperback Cover page Slightly Sleazy Vintage Paperbacks to find a daily pulpish paperback cover from my collection

Also Visit our Daily Pulp Magazine Cover page PULP MAGAZINE COVER OF THE DAY to find a daily pulp magazine cover from my collection
