The image for this month’s cover comes from the September 1920 issue of the pulp magazine Black Mask. The issue is part of the James Madison University (JMU) Libraries’ Special Collections pulp holdings. The collection is housed in Carrier Library at JMU, which is located in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

JMU’s Special Collections was established in 1983 and has long specialized in materials that document JMU’s history, as well as that of the Central Shenandoah Valley. Other areas of interest include artist’s books, juvenile literature, comic books, and any items that support JMU’s curricula. On October 7 and 8, 2016, JMU’s Special Collections will be hosting the 1st Annual Pulp Studies Symposium: Sensational Scholarship (http://sites.jmu.edu/jmupulpsym/).
