Pulp Magazine Archive

  The Internet Archive is a massive and growing resource, and I have long since given up on the idea of exploring it all.  Thus, I am always happy to find when someone else posts about an IA collection with which I was not yet familiar.  Unfortunately, I have managed to completely forget where I found out about the IA's Pulp Magazine Archive, but to that now forgotten blog poster, please accept my thanks.  This collection has full color scans of pulp magazines starting in the early 20th century, proceeding through the height of the pulp era in the 1930's to 1950's, and even up to the (relatively) more recent, glossy (but still pulp-like in content) magazines of the 1980's and 1990's.  The cover art, especially on some of the science fiction titles, is especially cool.
