R is for Retro, the golden age of science fiction, a world of rocket ships, square-jawed heroes, bug-eyed Martians, and damsels in distress. I love pulp fiction, which is why I was so amazed by the Pulp-O-Mizer. It's an online gadget that lets you create your own customized pulp scifi magazine cover. You can set the background, title, subtitle, pretty much everything. Here's one some we made just for us:

UPDATE: Okay, I made a few more...
And I could have made a thousand more. The best part is you can save your creations as an image, a Facebook update, a poster, coffee mug, T-shirt, or even an iPad case. Check it out at: Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual, where you can also check out their pulp serials and stories. See you in the future!

I played around with that a few weeks ago. I liked the one app last night called tombstonebuilder.com (I think) where you could inscribe your own tombstone.
