Mucho se ha hablado de Pulp Fiction, película clásica del cine de los 90´dirigida por Quentin Tarantino, pero muchos desconocen que ese nombre remite a revistas que desde los años 20´ del siglo pasado recrearon la vida de mucha gente.

Esto dice Wikipedia

Pulp es un término popular que refería a un formato de encuadernación a la rústica, barato y de consumo popular, de revistas que se especializaban en narraciones e historietas de diferentes géneros de la literatura de ficción. Las publicaciones contenían argumentos simples con grabados e impresiones artísticas en los que se mostraba el argumento de la narración, de manera similar a un cómic o una historieta.

Dichas publicaciones aparecen durante el primer tercio del siglo XX y continúa su impresión hasta finales de la década de 1950. Las publicaciones fueron descendientes directos de las dime novels y los penny dreadfuls, formatos de revistas populares que contaban las hazañas de soldados y bandoleros, los cuales eran baratos para el consumo popular y eran vendidos por un dime y un penny, respectivamente.

Diferentes publicaciones incluían en sus argumentos diferentes géneros de la ficción como la ciencia ficción, la ficción de horror, suspenso, acción, romance y fantasía en los que intervenían distintos elementos de carácter lascivo como la violencia y el erotismo, concentrándose en las variantes de la ficción de explotación. Las publicaciones comenzaron a distinguirse del comic book tradicional debido a su formato de publicación extenso y a la intervención de elementos de la ficción de explotación en el argumento de la publicación.

Pues bien, entrando un poco en tema les propongo disfrutar en 6 publicaciones, de las revistas que desde 1920 a 1959 y más, retrataron el mundo de las modelos, pin ups y show girls de la época, cada tapa, una obra de arte.

Early ACE edition of what would become Junky by William S. Burroughs
Presented as Junkie: Confessions of an Unredeemed Drug Addict by William Lee
At the time Burroughs earned less than a cent royalty on each purchase of the “pulp” version by ACE.
The other story in this “ACE Double” was previously published 1941 novel called Narcotic Agent. This ACE edition is a highly desired collectible and even below-average-condition copies have been known to cost hundreds of dollars.  The United States Library of Congress purchased a copy in 1992 for its Rare Book/Special Collections Reading Room.
After the success of Naked Lunch Burroughs was able to change the title Junkie to his originally intend title Junky, (really he wanted to call it Junk), and add missing sections of the manuscript that were edited out.
According to Wikipedia: “In 2003, to mark the work’s 50th anniversary, Penguin reissued the book as Junky: The Definitive Text of “Junk.” It included a new introduction by Oliver Harris, the British literary scholor, who integrated new material never before published; Harris had found edits of deleted material in the literary archives of Allen Ginsberg.”
This is the version I recommend buying if interested…
But it’s interesting to see this original “pulp” cover.  Clearly going for shock value.
Are there any other novels that have gone from “pulp” to be considered of worthy of scholarship?
Not that I know of.

Hmm… a few, I believe.Richard Allen’s novels have been ‘academically packaged’, and H.P. Lovecrafts work was considered ‘pulp’ at one time, two examples off the top of my head…
