Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Pioneer Western, August 1937
Here's another short-lived Western pulp, but I'm not sure why it wasn't more successful. That's a pretty good cover, and the line-up of authors -- Walt Coburn, Harry F. Olmsted, Cliff Farrell, and John G. Pearsol, among others -- is certainly sturdy enough to carry a magazine. Maybe the word "Pioneer" just wasn't action-packed enough. With yarn-spinners like that in its pages, though, I certainly would have picked it up if I'd had an extra dime in my pocket.
