Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Six-Gun Western, September 1948
As some of you can probably tell just by looking at that cover, SIX-GUN WESTERN is another entry from Trojan Magazines, publisher of the Spicy line of pulps. This is a pretty typical cover for that line, but the authors in this issue make it interesting. There are a number of prolific Western pulpsters represented, including H.A. DeRosso, Frank C. Robertson, C. William Harrison, and Lee Floren, plus well-known science fiction author and critic James Blish. I've never read any of Blish's Western stories, but I read quite a bit of SF by him when I was younger. Just one more example of the fact that cross-genre authors are nothing new.
