Saturday Morning Western Pulp: All Western, December 1933

Here's another pretty good stampede cover (the painting is called "Prairie Fire" and is by R. Farrington Elwell), this time from an early pulp published by Dell. There are quite a few excellent authors represented inside: Walt Coburn, Eugene Cunningham, J.E. Grinstead, Robert J. Hogan, Hapsburg Liebe, Tom J. Hopkins, William Freeman Hough, and George Cory Franklin. All of those authors showed up frequently in a variety of pulps. I wouldn't quite call it an all-star lineup (Coburn and Cunningham are probably the only ones who fall into that category), but it's close.

I used to collect this magazine but I sold off just about all my copies when I made a feeble attempt to downsize a few years ago.

According to The Adventure House Guide to the Pulps, ALL WESTERN lasted for 89 issues, 1931-1943. One of the better western titles.

Every Saturday I come here to touch base with my Mom. She used to love to watch westerns on TV on Saturdays.

For Mom, my favorite cowgirl.
Love you.

Thanks! James.

I like how you can date these issues from the NRA shield on the cover. Thanks again.
