“Mad scientists! Desperate housewives! Murderous robots! Scandalous starlets! Sordid, drug-fueled love affairs!” Is this an ad for a new movie? It’s better than that – it’s a book. For all those who yearned to read Tamil pulp fiction but couldn’t because you didn’t know Tamil (or just missed out on them) comes this exciting collection of short stories by

Tamil Plup

the best Tamil thriller writers, translated into English for the first time. “The Blaft Anthology of Tamil Pulp Fiction” (selected and translated by Pritham Chakravarthy and edited by Rakesh Khanna) features seventeen tales of crime, romance, science fiction, and detective stories.

What is also fun about the book is that it includes the original illustrations and cover art for these stories from the magazines and novels they first appeared in. Check out the book’s jacket cover by Shyam, which shows a typical Tamil girl in glasses and a saree – but holding a gun! The writers included here are all the pulp legends: Suba, Rajesh Kumar, Vidya Subramaniam, Indra Soundar Rajan, Ramanichandran, Pattukkottai Prabakar, Tamizhvanan, Pushpa Thangadorai, Brajanand V.K. and Resakee. If you are interested in acquiring a copy, you’ll find it in most bookstores. For more information, you can go up their website (www.blaft.com). Blaft Publications is a new independent publishing house based in Chennai.
