In the Pulp Fiction Trenches

Join renowned author Len Levinson as he journeys to the past and offers a vivid window into the mind of a writer.

In these pages, Levinson offers a rare look into the origins of his literary career. He writes about his influences, his struggles, and his formation as both a reader and a writer.

While other kids were writing about fishing excursions and sports’ games, Levinson was writing science fiction epics about imaginary trips to Pluto. He describes the first time he put pen to paper as an out-of-body hallucination spurred on by the pure joy of self-expression.

This candid memoir, written by an accomplished author, embraces the all-consuming adventures in literature while also describing the ins and outs of a writer’s unbridled life—both in agony and ecstasy.
