Biographies Fiction Non Fiction Pulp Fiction

The Archives' pulp fiction collection consists of sexually explicit paperback books published as escapist reading for adults. The books have obvious titles such as Bad Boys and Crotch Bait and cover art that is sexually suggestive. Currently we have about 300 titles.

Many of these books were published in San Diego or the nearby community of Santee. None of the books has an ISBN number. The quality of the paper and the length of the stories show that these books were intended to be inexpensive, quick reads.
