About this Item: Los Angeles Sherbourne Press 1962 / 1967, 1967. Original 137 page mimeograph typed manuscript,ÔThe Hungry YearsÕ by Frank Gruber, with a small label reading ÔFrom the Library of Frank GruberÕ affixed to the inside of the front cover. Bradbound. Very good lightly used copy in printed wrappers. With a First Edition copy of ÔThe Pulp JungleÕ by Frank Gruber, signed and inscribed by the author: ÒTo Ross Teal, with the best wishes of Frank Gruber.Ó Fine in a near fine bright dust jacket with some tiny edge nicks. Both items tell the fascinating story of the development of Òpulp magazinesÓ, especially Black Mask Magazine, by celebrated suspense, mystery, and western fiction writer, Frank Gruber, with ÔThe Hungry YearsÕ being the early manuscript form of the book ÔThe Pulp Jungle.Õ Frank Gruber (1904 - 1969), was a prolific writer, best known for his Westerns and his detective stories, who sometimes wrote under the pen names Stephen Acre, Charles K. Boston and John K. Vedder. He once bragged that he could write a complete mystery novel in 16 days and then use the other 14 days of the month to knock out a historical serial for a magazine. Legend has it that, while in the Army, he learned how to control the dice to throw 35 consecutive sevens, but that he had since "lost this skill through lack of practice.Ó Both items are enormously informative and entertaining, with the main difference being one of style and tone. ÔThe Hungry YearsÕ has a more candid and immediate feel, relating wild tales of staying one step ahead of the landlord, the bill collector, the law, the editor, and, quite literally, physical hunger (think 10 cent or less meals at the automat & ÔfreeÕ tomato soup - catsup in hot water). ÔThe Pulp JungleÕ shares many of the same stories, but has a more edited and polished presentation, while retaining much of the essential cutting edge energy of the times. Together, they give the reader a front row seat to some of the most interesting and vital times in modern American literary history. With anecdotes about some of the most popular writers and publishing icons of the Depression era and beyond, including one of GruberÕs idols Max Brand (ÕKing of the PulpsÕ), L. Ron Hubbard of ÔDianeticsÕ and founder of Scientology, Forrest Ackerman, Erle Stanley Gardner, Raoul Whitfield, Rex Stout, Jonathan Latimer, Zane Grey, Ernest Haycox, Clarence E. Mulford, etc. Together: Seller Inventory # 18205E
