This book and its companion volumes are concerned with the slow boiling and shaping of many literary conventions over many decades. This volume will begin with the dime novels and several early series characters who influenced the direction of pulp fiction at its source.
Robert Sampson was the author of eight books on the magazines and the characters of the pulp era, including Yesterday's Faces, a six-volume study of series characters and how they evolved through the early pulp magazines. He published more than 100 articles on these magazines and their fiction and contributed essays to such reference works as Mystery, Detective, and Espionage Magazines; and wrote for such periodicals as Clues, The Dime Novel Round-Up, The Mystery Fancier, and The Armchair Detective. His mystery and fantasy fiction appeared in numerous journals and anthologies. He received the 1986 Edgar for his short mystery, "Rain in Pinton County."
