Pulp Fiction Thursday: F. Scott Fitzgerald

In the early paperback era, many authors of “quality fiction” received the pulp treatment. Every once in a while I like to present some of those covers.┬áThere’s no time like the present.

Scott Fitzgerald was largely forgotten in the early days of paperbacks. The Fitzgerald revival didn’t begin in earnest until the early 1960’s. I’m glad it happened: I still think The Great Gatsby is one of the best English language novels ever written. It’s a good place to begin this week’s pulp parade:
