Ryan Richardson is an awesome pop culture archaeologist. He’s getting some attention right now for posting the entire archives of the 70s/80s punk magazine Slash. And if that’s not enough, he’s got a lot other archives too. Two of the best are Fanzine Faves, collecting punk fanzines, and Star 1973 compiling all five issues of the groupie-culture teen magazine Star.
You could spend years poking around all the stuff Richardson has scanned and linked from his website, but perhaps the most fun is Gay On The Range, a collection of cover art from gay-themed pulp erotica from the 1960s. We’ve excerpted a mere sampling of the best below, but we urge you to go check out the full collection!
