Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Western Story, June 24, 1922
I like stampede covers, and this is a pretty good one. That cowboy had better hope his horse doesn't trip. They'll both be in trouble if it does. As for the contents, there are two Frederick Faust stories in this issue, one under the John Frederick pseudonym, the other as by George Owen Baxter. Did the readers of the time really believe all those Faust pseudonyms were different writers? All the stories read like the work of the same author to me, which, of course, they were. The only other author in this issue whose name I recognize is F.R. Buckley, who I haven't read, but several people on the WesternPulps list have had good things to say about his stories.
