Nugget #69 -- Pulp as Religion

 A good pulp action story gets in our
 heads and changes us for the better,
 either by encouraging and inspiring
 the good or by showing us how
 choosing the bad can lead down a
 bitter and tragic path with awful
 consequences. Thinking about it that
 way almost makes it sound like a
 religious experience, and to some
 degree (at least for me anyway),
 all good fiction is.
