About the book:

" First Digital Edition
" Annotation includes Afterword on the history of Pulps

The easel stood in its place and Paula set the largest of the pads on it. "Going to pose for me?

The old grin spread across Byrne's features. "Are you braver tonight?"

"Oh, much," Paula nodded with enthusiasm.

Byrne dragged a chair across the room and sat down, turning her profile to Paula.

Paula hesitated. She stared at Byrne for a while, waiting for some inspiration to move her pencil. "I liked it better the other way," she said in a small voice, not daring to look at Byrne.

She heard a laugh rumble out of the woman. It seemed to lap around Paula, dissolving her convictionand her confidence.

"Well, its true," Paula's voice shook. "Don't you want me to draw properly?" Her cheeks flushed with passion.

"Don't get excited," Byrne replied mildly. "If you prefer the other way, I have no objections."

With deliberate movement, she stood up. Slowly, she kicked off one shoe, then the other. A hint of cynicism flitting across her lips, she pulled the sweater over her head. The warm odor of her perfumed body floated on the air&


Paula, a young and inexperienced woman, believes she is in love with Phil. When he proposes marriage she eagerly says yes. Phil takes Paula to meet his Aunt Bernadette, known as Byrne, and life for Paula changes forever. Paula falls hard for the older woman and soon the shy young girl gains confidence as she pursues Byrne with a relentless determination. Before long, marriage to Phil becomes relegated to the back seatso much so, in fact, that Paula realizes it will never take place.

Unconventional behavior certainly is not rare in Manhattan art circles. But what was going on in the ménage a trois of the Byrne woman raised the eyebrows even of the most broadminded. She was supposed to be loving and cherishing another artist, Gretaa woman with whom she had a long and torrid past. Yet she welcomed the advances of the bewitching and young Paula.

Of course, love between women can often be complicated and& challenging. In Paula's case, however, it can also come with a great deal of guilt. For Paula has not only a woman to love, but also a man. Phil Carson tried with all his strength and virility to rescue Paula from her unnatural desire, but true love is hard to fight against& especially when the woman you love is always in the arms of the woman she loves!

About Lesbian Pulp Fiction:

A new revolution was underway at the start of the 1940s in Americaa paperback revolution that would change the way publishers would produce and distribute books and the reading public would consume them. In 1939 a new publishing companyPocket Booksstormed onto the scene with the publication of its first paperbound book. Unlike hardback books, these pulp paperbacks were inexpensive and readily available everywhere. The American public could not get enough of them.

During the 1940s, mysteries and romances were the hot sellers. In the early 1950s, new pulp fiction subgenres emergedscience fiction, westerns, gay & lesbian fiction, juvenile delinquent and sleaze, for instancethat would tantalize readers with gritty, realistic and lurid stories never seen before. Publishers soon came to realize that sex sells. In a competitive frenzy for readers, they turned from straightforward "tasteful" cover images to alluring covers that frequently featured a sexy woman in some form of undress, along with a suggestive tag line that promised stories of sex and violence within the covers. To this day, the pulp cover art of these vintage paperback books is just as sought after as the books themselves were sixty years ago.

We are excited to make these wonderful pulp fiction stories available in ebook format to new generations of readers, as a new revolutionthe ebook revolutionis in full swing. We hope you will enjoy this nostalgic look back at the golden age of pulp fiction.
