Pulp Fiction, African style

I got these from an e-mail list I'm on. They are about African, mainly Nigerian, pulp literature that has traditionally been called "Onitsha" in there. The first two links are about the stuff, the last one is the actual merchandise. (Beware, though: the PDF's are huge and open pretty slow. Not at all, if you're at a modem.) This ain't no Mike Hammer or even Rocky Steele.
