Reading pulp magazines online

Well, for a lot of reasons you have opted to enjoy your preferred vintage magazine in digital version. That’s not at all a bad idea since this way you can get a huge amount of vintage issues with little or zero expense.

Within our site you can find our Pulp Magazines To Read section, which offers a wide range of magazines all free to read: all the issues feature the highest possible quality and an entirely restored cover. As the amount of the issues is constantly growing, we suggest to stay tuned!

The section of the famous Internet Archive site https://archive.org/details/pulpmagazinearchive surely deserves a look: this is probably the first and foremost free resource in our field​ since currently it offers such a total of 11,120 editions of various vintage magazines, all free to read and/or to download. Surely there is not lack of choice! You can focus your search within the site and select the desired one, then download it in PDF format or directly read it simply by clicking the cover and then the page to turn. Direct reading offers a good view, though not as defined as the PDF version, and the viewer tool is very versatile: it offers various levels of zoom and the possibility to switch in full screen mode. Naturally, to get a perfect vision of the page is advisable to take a few moments and download it in PDF format. Then you can easily read it by using a good PDF reader (I suggest “Perfect PDF reader”, a free app that allows you to get a full page immersion simply by clicking 1)View, 2)Fit and 3)Full Screen).

Third, but not lesser in importance is https://pulpmags.org/magazines…, the main section of the Pulp Magazines Project site . Currently they are issuing a total of 68 different magazines ranging from year 1892 to the Fifties, plus some miscellaneous of single numbers, comprising juicy full color comics of the early Forties. Various numbers are available for every magazine listed and you can choose the modality of reading by selecting PDF or FlipBook format.

Another good site that offers a large amount of magazines to pick is http://comicbookplus.com/?cid=…. Although the site is specialized in comics, it provides an interesting section dedicated to pulps, dime novels and story papers. Maybe the layout is not the best, but if you have the patience to register in you’ll be able to download the magazines in PDF format and then easily read them using the aforementioned Perfect PDF Reader.

Finally we suggest to take a look at The Luminist League Library & Archives site: in their sections dedicated to science-fiction and pulp magazines also are a lot of issues, neatly listed. You can find them here: science fiction, pulp magazine. All you have to do is simply to click the highlighted date under the cover and download the PDF.

Many other sites offer quite a number of vintage magazines, but we believe the five above are currently the best.

Have a good time.
