The Flip-Side of Popular Culture As Seen Through Magazines and Tabloids.
Bad Mags illuminates the darker recesses of "pop lit"--focusing upon the strangest, sleaziest and most unusual periodicals and tabloids published in the US from the fifties through the eighties.
Bad Mags lists well over 200 publications, each listed with issue numbers, volumes, dates, publishers addresses, cover price, and page count. Each listing also has information on the articles and features of interest mixed with anecdotal information, including entries by David Kerekes.
Bad Mags is a unique, helpful and informative guide to a hugely popular, now neglected, aspect of US literary history.www.badmags.com
