Bibliographies of paperbacks are extremely useful in identifying dates, authors and their pseudonyms, and the total output of various pulp publishers. Graeme Flanagan’s work on Australian pulps, and Piet Schreuders’s effort in identifying American paperbacks are both ground-breaking publications. Here they are surrounded by the rich variety of books on paperbacks and their developments: the sexy, the adventurous, the art and artistry involved in producing covers, and even guides to costs of such collectibles.
