Found this at a used bookstore from 2003.

While not a pulp cover I thought the r/pulp community would find this fascinating- though I’m sure almost all of these folks have passed. Shout out to the talented individuals who made this sub possible.

Motels

Can anyone recommend some pulps in which motels are somewhat central to the plot and/or the setting?

A few months ago, I was at a comic convention and managed to pick up a classic pulp fiction magazine for a reasonable price. An incredible find!
