Retro Pulp Tales [Lansdale, Joe R.] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Retro Pulp Tales.   Shelves: hairy-eyeball, pulp. Like the title says, stories inspired by the pulps and digest-sized magazines that lined newstands and drugstores in decades past.

It was an homage to the pulp magazines of the 20s, 30s, and 40s. While I do not recall any one or two stories being better than the others, the scope of variety, imagination, and crazy energy somehow elevated the entire collection to become more than just the sum of /5.

  AEGIS Tales: A Retro Pulp Anthology By Todd Downing Eight authors deliver ten action-packed retro pulp adventure short stories from the Airship Daedalus world. Continuing in the vein of the Award winning Retro Pulp Tales, Joe R. Lansdale and his son Keith Lansdale present Son of Retro Pulp Tales. More stories in the tradition of the pulps, early digest magazines and pre sixties films, this one contains everything from Lovecraftian monsters to demons to hardboiled shootouts to plain ole unchained oddness. I greatly enjoyed Joe R Lansdale’s multi-author short story anthology, Retro Pulp Tales. It was an homage to the pulp magazines of the 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s. While I do not recall any one or two stories being better than the others, the scope of variety, imagination, and crazy energy somehow elevated the entire collection to become more than just the sum of its parts.4/5. His tribute anthology Retro Pulp Tales () was successful enough to justify another containing 11 more speedy narratives featuring more-or-less stock protagonists whose wits and trigger fingers tend to be equally quick.”.
