The Best of the Encyclopedia

A brief twirl through this encyclopedia will show that some characters, in the their respective character lists, have a * next to their names (i.e., "Fascinax *"). The * indicates that the character and/or the stories or novels or films or comic strips in which that character appears are notable in some way. Not notable because of historical importance, but notable because the character embodies the ideasplosions and pure imagination that are the best aspects of the pulps or because the the stories/novels/etc the character appears in are particularly entertaining or well-written. (Being entertaining or well-written is no bar to being problematic because of various bigotries, of course, as is so often the case with fiction in the pulps). These characters and these stories/novels/etc are the best the Encyclopedia of Pulp Heroes have to offer, so I decided to group them all on one page, so that people who want a quick introduction to what the Encyclopedia has to offer in its purest form can get it on one page.
