Stoked About Pulpy Book Order
Well, I just thought I'd share my excitement at my book order today. First, some context. With the new year upon us, I have resolved to get much more knowledgeable of pulp fantasy and gothic horror because those genres have taken a back seat to straight fantasy for a long time and they really appeal to me. (These are common New Year's resolutions for most people, aren't they? Aren't they?)
To help realize this objective, just today I ordered books from three seminal authors in their genres:
Clark Ashton Smith
Edgar Rice Burroughs
I've dabbled in HPL, but I've never even touched Smith or ERB. And I find myself extraordinarily excited to finally get exposure to these authors!
