The Beinecke Library at Yale University is home to an extensive collection of lesbian pulp novels spanning 1935-1958, and the covers of the novels are a veritable must see for any fan of pulp fiction or historical pop (and sub) culture.

Lesbian pulp novels were a staple of newsstands, airports, bus terminals and drug stores in the early to mid-1900s. Many pulp fiction novels (including some of these lesbian pulp fiction novels), were written by established literature writers under pseduonyms authors Gore Vidal (pen names: Edgar Box, Cameron Kay, and Katherine Everard), Stephen King (pen name: Richard Bachmann), mystery writer Lawrence Block (pen names: Jill Emerson, Sheldon Ward, Andrew Shaw), and Marion Zimmer Bradley (pen names: Lee Chapman, Miriam Gardner, and Morgan Ives).
