A wide range of Pulp Fiction resources are available. They include pulp stories with a gay and lesbian focus, general reprints of well-known pulp stories, and works on the artists and artwork arising out of the industry. Most notable are the newly published pulps, with Autopsy (Sydney) and Hard Case Crime (New York) publishing titles on a regular basis. Indeed, one title by Hard Case Crime recently featured a story by Stephen King. And just sometimes, the art work is askew; note the longest legs in history on the cover of Aleas’s Little Girl Lost.
