Legendarium Media: Star Wars as Pulp

In Mythgard’s The Force of Star Wars class, we’ve talked quite a bit about the influence of the 1930s Flash Gordon serials on the Star War saga. Although Star Wars (especially A New Hope) falls into this tradition of pulp space opera, it isn’t limited to that genre. Indeed, in my latest piece for Legendarium Media, I argue that the Star Wars tie-in novels moved Star Wars away from pulp and explored other literary genres, such as military sci-fi, horror, etc.
