Inside these mags were stories of almost every genre possible depending on a particular magazine's focus. While the ActionAdventure series in the spirit of ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' or ''Literature/{{Pellucidar}}'' and ProtoSuperhero (like ''Radio/TheShadow'' or ''DocSavage'') series are best remembered today, there were vast varieties like science fiction (like ''Magazine/AmazingStories''), crime & detective (like ''Black Mask''), horror (Creator/HPLovecraft's stories) romance and many others.

Very few involved, including the writers who often were paid a penny a word, thought the fiction created had real value the way novels often tried to. But the stories were at their best in the wild scenes of furious action, and influence their descendant media to this day. Many {{Dead Horse Trope}}s were [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny new and original in the pulps]]. For instance, the SuperHero and Spy Hero stories like JamesBond owe a lot to the medium's influence.

* As the storm clouds gathered over Europe and the Far East, pulp hero ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operator_No._5 Secret Service Operator #5]]'' (1934 - 1939) fought attempts by various foreign armies from South America, [[{{Fatherland}} Europe]] and the [[YellowPeril Orient]] to [[DayOfTheJackboot conquer the United States]]. The events are completely over-the-top as benefits the pulp genre, except for the time the Japs destroy an entire city (Philadelphia) with their evil atomic bomb. [[HarsherInHindsight Only Orientals would do such a dastardly deed...]]
