Early pulp entertainment for the masses (and for those on streetcars, wagons and trains.) It's the Dime Novel! Surprisingly thick and with plenty of multi-syllable words. Back in 1910, it seems the junk populace was smarter than we are now. I don't know much about these...and I am certainly not going to read any. These novels are dense!
I do know "The Old Sleuth" was a young guy who dressed up as an old bald guy to solve crimes, but I am not sure why. The world's first geriatric superhero! I guess at the scene of a crime, he would duck into the nearest saloon or haberdashery and paste on his wispy beard.
Group of dime novels, now a dollar each! Artists unidentified and frequently written by hacks. Collection Jim Linderman, but maybe I'll recycle them. This is prime pulp.
