Where did the name “Ten Story Love” come from, anyway?Ten Story Love was a publication in the “Romance” genre that began its life as a pulp magazine, shifting to comic book format in the 1950’s.

The “Pulps,” so called because they were printed on cheap high-acid-content paper, served as popular reading material, similar to today’s paperback; cheap, portable, disposable, and often sensational. This genre flourished from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Titles focused on specific literary genres: romance, western, detective, science fiction, horror, etc. Writers were frequently paid by the word, and to meet daily living expenses, well-known authors sometimes wrote for these magazines under pseudonyms, putting only their “literary” work under their real name.

The Pulp Fiction collection at the Library of Congress includes copies of Ten Story Love. The collection has now been microfilmed and is available in the Microform Reading Room, LJ-107, Jefferson Building.
