As the amount of the issues is constantly growing, we suggest to stay tuned!


The Internet Archive

The Pulp Magazines 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​. Currently it offers such a total of 15,272 issues 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 issue, then download it in PDF format. Also you can directly read it simply by clicking the cover and then the page to turn. The direct reading offers a good view, though not as defined as the PDF version. The viewer is very versatile: it offers various levels of zoom and the option to switch in full screen mode. Naturally, to get a perfect vision is advisable to take a few moments and download the magazine in PDF format. Then you can easily read it by using a good PDF reader (we 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).


Pulp Magazines Project

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 magazines. Included in the list are some juicy full color comics of the early Forties. Various issues are available for every magazine listed and you can choose the view by selecting PDF or FlipBook format.


Comic Book Plus

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.


The Luminist

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.

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

Have a good time!
