There is a new anthropomorphic magazine that is looking for pulp fiction style stories to publish. They want the typical characters going through typical adventures known in the old pulp magazine stories like Doc Savage, the Shadow, and other fun stuff. I am working on a short story to submit to them, which will be an action future sword and sorcery tale with anthropomorphic animal characters. It's going to be like Conan the Barbarian, but with three characters going on a quest to re-calm a stolen magical item from an evil conqueror for a princess. I won't spoil it. I want to know how most pulp short stories are written, not their styles, but how they work. Are they more plot driven with less characterization? Are back story information is unnecessary in these shorts? Do they only focus on the characters' action with a lot of cliff hangers and twists? Are there only a little bit of back story details a long the plot? Should all back story information be less and small so the readers won't be turn off from the main plot? I really want my story to sound like a typical fantasy pulp fiction story so it might get a chance to be accepted. I already order some Conan short stories to get the idea of how they work.
