Spring Fire Gift Set
First Edition

Heralded as the first lesbian pulp fiction, this popular lesbian pulp novel is used in many women's studies classes at major universities. Notable lesbian author Vin Packer wrote the first lesbian pulpfiction that contained a solely lesbian storyline and love affair. Nevertheless she was hesitant to approve the 2004 reprint because she was embarrassed by the homophobia and unhappy ending which was required by morality laws at the time. This novel serves as an excellent example of how far we have come. Great historical pulp fiction book for your collection.

What's included:
The Spring Fire lesbian book Gift Set is elegantly gift wrapped in organza and includes an original collectible first edition lesbian 1952 paperback (not a reproduction), a custom designed pulp bookmark and a 1 inch Fun Button.

These rare collectible paperback novels, available in limited quantities are over 50 years old. All books in the LavenderPulp gift sets must pass a rigid set of standards. They have no tears, marks or rips. We inspect each paperback and include only those that are graded VG/VG+ (Very Good) by traditional bookseller standards.

Summary:
Spring Fire tells the story of Susan "Mitch" Mitchell, an awkward freshman at a Midwestern college who falls in love with Leda, her popular but troubled sorority sister. Although Leda often encourages Mitch to keep their relationship under wraps, it is Leda in the end who proves to love Mitch.

What are "Real" Lesbian Pulps?
Our goal is to track down only those written by women, geared toward the lesbian community since many 1950s lesbian pulps were written under pseudonyms, marketed to the general public. 



Where do the books come from?
We search our butts off! We scour book fairs, auctions, private collections and conventions to create these perfect lesbian gifts. We contact booksellers and book collectors from the USA, Canada and parts of Europe.

Are these newly released reprints?
No, Lavender Pulp sells rare authentic vintage collectible paperback lesbian novels, NOT reproductions. Available only in limited quantities, these rare lesbian books are over 50 years old. 
 


Making the Cut

All books must pass a rigid set of standards. Many rare books do not survive in good condition. We inspect each paperback and include only those that are graded VG/VG+ (Very Good) by traditional bookseller standards into our lesbian gift sets. They have no tears, marks or rips.
