===Background===
Genres offer a way to categorize pulp magazines and the stories in them. As a result, genres are broad topics and typically include many subcategories within them. Not all pulps or stories fit nicely into a single genre, or category. After some discussions on the [[http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PulpMags/ Pulp Mags mailing list]] at Yahoo Groups, these main categories coalesced:
~- [[AdventureGenre Adventure]]
~- [[CrimeGenre Crime]]
~- [[GeneralGenre General]]
~- [[HeroPulpGenre Hero/Character]]
~- [[HorrorGenre Horror]]
~- [[MiscGenre Miscellaneous]]
~- [[MysteryGenre Mystery/detective]]
~- [[RomanceGenre Romance]]
~- [[SpicyGenre Saucy/spicy]]
~- [[FantasyGenre Fantasy/science fiction]]
~- [[SportsGenre Sports]]
~- [[WarGenre War]]
~- [[WesternGenre Western]]
Within each of these broader categories are subcategories, such as ì[[HorrorGenre weird menace]],î ì[[MysteryGenre hardboiled]]î or ì[[ScienceFictionGenre space opera]].î These subcategories are discussed within the entry of the broader genre.
