Hi. My name is Jess Nevins. You might know me from such books as The Encyclopedia of Fantastic Victoriana, The Encyclopedia of Pulp Heroes, and the introduction to Steampunk.

In Victoriana I wrote, at length, about penny bloods and dime novels, the 19th century predecessors to pulp magazines. People were entertained by what I wrote. But few people have ever read any bloods or dime novels, and due to both cost and accessibility few people ever will.

So I’ve decided to put a penny blood online.
