A Short Break for the Holidays

I might as well face it, with the demands of the holidays and family and life over hobbies, the Pulp Archivist blog will be on break until the new year. Don't worry, there's still more to mine from the pulps; I just need more time to delve deeper and explore the other important pulps of the day, not just the ones we're familiar with. In the meantime, check out Paul Lucas's investigation of literary criticism and its nefarious purposes:
But there is a hidden agenda to this concept of readerly and writerly texts, something hidden underneath the surface. It all comes back to this idea that the reader is more important than the author, this idea that the reader ‘always projects’. It’s a hidden agenda that most people don’t realise is there.
That certainly helps explain why today's geeky fandoms are so twisted.

But enough about that familiar subject. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
