Narayanan Rajesh Kumar Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Blaft Anthology of Tamil Pulp Fiction: Volume 2 book, this is one of the most wanted Rakesh Khanna Pritham K. Chakravarthy Indira Soundarrajan Jeyraj Pushpa Thangadorai Indumathi M.K. Narayanan Rajesh Kumar author readers around the world.

    2. It was only natural that I would return to this series. A year or so ago, I read the first installment and liked the brainless entertainment it offered. The reading is effortless, the lines cheesy, the action non stop and the dialog unintentionally funny ! Welcome to the world of Indian pulp ! While Tamil pulp fiction might not represent the entire plethora that India has to offer, it definitely is dynamite. You get monsters, broad-chested policemen, women with swaying hips and heaving bosoms, m [...]

    3. Complete 'time pass!'Read it when you need to be entertained without having to expend much thought.

    4. From my blog: thegloballycuriousIn this second volume of Blaft's Tamil Pulp Fiction anthology, the editors have chosen to translate full-length novels and novellas from a variety of authors, including one from Singapore. Whereas a majority of the pieces in the first anthology were detective stories (a fact I mentioned in my review), this volume is mainly horror focused.The stories include: "The Palace of Kottaipuram" (1990) by Indra Soundar Rajan The royal family has been haunted by a curse for [...]

    5. Just finished reading the first novella, "The Palace of Kottaipuram" this is so entertaining! Thoroughly enjoyable fare, when you just need to escape from the dreariness of life and serious reading! Highly recommended for those who love this genre!

    6. I loved the first set of stories I pretty much right away bought this book. I loved this set of stories too. Though this collection has way more horror stories (which I personally love) and less of a mixed bag than the first anthology. I enjoyed the stories, even though some of them were fairly predictable, this was an enjoyable read.

    7. You may like to go thru my review written for TPF (Vol-I). The stories of TPL Vol-II are more or less in line with those in Vol-I in terms of substance. A few brilliant ones but mostly crap meant to titillate the lowest denominator.However if you are game for road side fiction and don't mind leaving all the logic and reasoning aside, then go for it.

    8. read the first story in this anthology, and thought the translation by Pritham Chakravarthy was brilliant. The story was also well chosen - representing all that tamil pulp is well known for - battles between men fought on the person of women (virgin pubescent girls), status quo-ist plot lines, and two-dimensional characters.

    9. Pulp fiction, sometimes a little trite, but a decent insight on Tamil magazine stories that our mums and grandmums used to pore over, especially for me, because I cant read Tamil and this is as close as it can ever get, to reading the originals.

    10. I did like the Indra Soundar Rajan's Kottaipuratthu veedu. But didnt like the kind of English used. Apt title, its just pulp fiction!

    11. The stories in the second part of Tamil pulp fiction were really just average. No great shakes. A bit disappointed. 2.5 stars.
