Inspired by the pulp adventure magazines of the 1920s and 1930s, Steampulp Publishing LLC released the first electronic pulp magazine. Now with nine issues available, you can read all of your favorite stories right on your iPad, iPhone or iPod (or any other smartphone).

The magazine's stories are all first run fiction works and contain excellent steampunk graphics. Check out the gallery to see the stunning combination of steampunk and hi-tech gadgetry.

Implications - In the last few years, Hollywood studios have placed an increased focus on film franchises that feature dystopian or video game elements. A company can capitalize on this by investing in marketing that either directly references a popular fantasy trope, or features a co-branded collaboration between a product and one of these stories. The company will benefit from a built-in and passionate fanbase.
