4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying a guilty pleasure from my childhood... 11 July 2014

ok could even give it five stars -- so much lighthearted drama and intrigue. The equivalent of the Perry Mason detective genre and sci-fi pulp -- and the few modern day selections are so fun too. I appreciated it because my tamil reading is at 1st grade level and not up to even reading these pulp magazine serials -- my brothers or mom would read excerpts to me from their favorites occasionally and I have fond memories of those few stories. Loved reading the more literature class translations like ponniyin selvan which were translated in the 90s and 2000s and super delighted to find this trove.

I have always wanted to be able to share in the stories read by my mother and other relatives and friends in Chennai. This anthology was a great opportunity to participate in that world. The introduction is insightful and enjoyable as are the translations. The English of the translations was crisp and clean; I felt that it must be honest to the language of the original stories. The translator and editor have made clear that they only chose 'pulp fiction,' so we must wait for another anthology if we are looking for the 'semi-literary' or for 'socially conscious literature.' I found some stories were quite gripping and some a bit too simple, but all gave me a look into the fictional world of the Tamil magazine.
