Lesbian Pulp Fiction flourished during the repressed 1950s & 60s offering for the first time lesbian visibility to thousands of women living in an era before Stonewall. Lesbian authors such as Vin Packer, Valerie Taylor and Ann Bannon filled the hunger of women across the nation who craved to meet and know others like themselves. Made of cheap 'pulp' paper these pocket-sized gems are now invaluable pieces of lesbian history.

Suggestive cover art with seductive taglines were intended to entice the public at large. Many pulp fiction books were written by men under pseudonyms however LavenderPulp has made it our goal to collect and offer novels and love stories directed toward the lesbian community that were written by women and lesbians.

In the past considered politically incorrect they are now recognized as an important part of the lesbian story and part of many Women's Studies curriculums across the nation.

For all its flaws, lesbian pulpfiction offered many women the understanding for the first time that they were not alone.
