PULP FICTION late 1800s – mid 1950s
By the Mid 1950s, erotic novels started appearing in Pulp fiction, though not quite X-rated, they were racy for that time.
Florence Stonebraker ( 1896 -1977), was a prolific writer for pulp. For thirty years, beginning at the age of 41, she cranked out more than 80 novels of unsanctioned sex. Married or single, her characters were tempted by and often surrendered to their lustful desires.
Her most prolific year was 1952, in which she published eleven novels.
Hank Janson was the most popular and successful of British pulp fiction authors of the 1940s and 1950s. His paperback editions featured erotic cover art and it is estimated that some five million copies were sold by 1954.
Here are others (there are hundreds), but unfortunately not much bio on the authors.
