The purpose of this website is to provide information about books and pulp magazines containing stories by L. Ron Hubbard from the pulps. The limits of this website is to Fiction from the 50s and earlier with the exception of various non-fiction articles from this time period.
There are several great books that where used to gather data for this project. "Master Storyteller", "The Fiction of L. Ron Hubbard: A Comprehensive Bibliography & Reference Guide to Published and Selected Unpublished Works", both by William J. Widder, where a huge help. Another great reference is the website www.philsp.com. Some of the best info that I have received has been from fellow collectors. You know who you are and I thank you.
The value indicated below each pulp is based on "Bookery's Guide to Pulps & Related Magazines" by Tim Cottrill. This is a good outline of what the pulps may be worth. This is not always the case. I have seen some of these pulps sell for far above and below their book value.
You will notice that some of the descriptions are incomplete. This is because I have not yet found the data to insert, either because I do not have the pulp in my collection to draw from or because I was unable to collect the data from reference books or the internet. If you have further data on any item in this website, or if there is an item that you feel is missing from this web site, then please share your knowledge with me. This site is a work in progress and I have a feeling that it will be for some time.
If you have any of these pulps and you are interested in selling them then send me an email. I am an avid collector and would be very interested in what you may have.
L. Ron Hubbard Pulp Fiction Checklist
After a LOT of research, time and effort, I have compiled a workable checklist of what a Hubbard pulp fiction collector may want to collect. 99% of these are from the 1950s and prior. Simply put, it is this website in checklist form. Fee free to download it at no cost. Just do me one favor, let me know if anything is missing.
Here is the breakdown of what this 20 page, 2 column checklist contains:
90 Adventure Pulps.
14 Detective Pulps.
78 Fantasy / SF pulps.
40 Western / Romance pulps.
30 Non-Fiction pulps / mags.
154 Foreign pulps.
49 First Edition books Foreign & Domestic.
98 Issues mentioning LRH or Dianetics.
This totals to over 550 collectables. There is no other book, checklist or website (Aside from this one) with a more complete list of LRH pulp fiction collectables. Trust me, I've looked.
