I have mentioned this link in a previous post but I recently discovered that the link to Lester Dent's (THE SHADOW, DOC SAVAGE) break-down of a pulp is no longer there. So I found a new link to share. Thanks to the fantastic site Paper-Dragon (a rpg site) it has a link to the aforementioned break-down. Check it out and get writing!
Also what is even groovier than that is the site also has a great online resource book on the 1930's era. A perfect start for anyone interested in setting their novel or film in the 30's. It can be found here.
