Edge of Twilight Gift Set  
First Edition
Author Paula Christian has been praised for writing story lines with positive endings which was not the norm in the repressed 1950s; Lesbian themed novels during that era were expected to end tragically. Christian has been praised for going against this pattern with openly lesbian content, more developed characters and successful relationships. Great anniversary or birthday gift for the lesbian in your life.

What's included:
The Edge of Twilight First Edition Gift Sets are elegantly gift wrapped in organza and include an original collectible lesbian 1959 paperback (not a reproduction), a custom designed pulp bookmark and a 1 inch Fun Button.

These rare, hard-to-find lesbian pulp fiction novels are original paperbacks from the 1950s and 60s, NOT REPRODUCTIONS. We scour book fairs and conventions across the US and Europe to find them. All vintage books for our lesbian gift sets must pass a rigid set of standards. They have no tears, marks or rips.

Edge of Twilight chronicles the ups and downs between strong-willed heroine Val "Mac" MacGregor, a New York-based stewardess and dark-eyed Toni Molina, a novice "stew". After nights of passionate kisses and clandestine meetings, Val gets scared of their romance and applies for a transfer to Florida. Eventually she realizes that she is deeply in love with Toni and cannot live without her. Their rocky love story continues in a second book, "The Other Side of Love" in which Val and Toni move on to California.

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.
