Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Action Stories, August 1935
ACTION STORIES wasn't exactly a Western pulp, since its contents included, well, action stories of other sorts as well, but Westerns were probably the dominant genre. This looks like a particularly strong issue, with a "Gip Drago" novel by Eugene Cunningham (I've never read any of the Gip Drago stories, but they sound good and I wish somebody would reprint them), a novel by Walt Coburn, stories by Barry Scobee and James P. Olsen, and a little yarn called "Cupid of Bear Creek", by none other than Robert E. Howard. Yep, a Breckenridge Elkins rip-snorter. And an action-packed cover, to boot.
