You put it on, I will play it. Just don't have time to do it myself with other stuff going on.

G, H, and K.
1920s aren't mentioned, but I like that, also.
A bunch of things on the list sound fun, and I'd love a chance to try them out.

I found the only way to effectively approach this was to copy the list, paste it, and remove a few items.

D) Wild West
F) Far Eastern Games (Kung fu and gun fu)
G) Victorian
H) Archeologists
I) Victorian Cyberpunk
J) Gangsters
L)World War 2 continued with monsters and robots
M) Cold War Spy Fi (James Bond style)
N) 1960s and 1970s
O) 1980s
P) Monsters
Q) Stompy robots
R) zombies
S) alternate histories
T) Post-apocalyptic
U) combo of the above
V) another era or setting

Z) You kids, get off my lawn!

Incidentally, a fun genre that comes and goes is Weird West (Dracula's America, etc.).

Jim Selzer and etotheipi's lists.

To answer Stone Mountain Miniatures question, I have played pirates, Nazis vs. Dinosaurs, Archeologists, Dr. Who, Gangsters, Victorians, Monsters, Zombies, and some that I have forgotten. I run 1960s Spy Fi (James Bond), Post-apocalyptic (Mad Max), Kung fu and gun fu, and Space opera (Star Wars).

I tend to think of Pulp as more of an artistic style or approach than any specific era or setting. In our most recent Pulp Alley game, there were three leagues involved -- Nazis, carnies, and Martians. There were also ghosts, but they were plot points.
