I find pulp lit incredibly fascinating. Every time I pop into Half Price Books, I spin through its rack of pulp titles, looking for standout titles or covers. There are always new gems - apparently the turnover there is pretty high? - and I'm frequently tempted to buy a couple, but the last thing I need is to start collecting another genre.

But Thomas Allen takes pulp to a whole new level. He cuts out cover elements from selected titles and then positions them together to create individual vignettes, resulting in a context even more deliciously pulpy than the originals.
