Ryan Richardson is an awesome pop culture archaeologist. He’s collected and posted the entire archives of the ’70s/’80s punk magazine Slash. And if that’s not enough, he’s got a lot of other archives, too. Two of the best are Fanzine Faves, which collects punk fanzines, and Star 1973compiling 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, including a large collection of gay pulp novels.

And 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 gay pulp novels below, but we urge you to go check out the full collection!

Here are 21 of of our favorite gay pulp novels and their hilarious covers:
