Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Crack Detective Stories, March 1944

Another of the Columbia pulps, which don't have a great reputation, but I like that cover (a beautiful redhead with a gun . . . what's not to like?), and the authors in this issue include T.W. Ford, Robert Turner, G.T. Fleming-Roberts, Tom Thursday, and Russell Gray (probably Bruno Fischer). Sounds like a pretty good line-up to me.

I used to collect this title but then it drove me crazy with the different name changes over the years and I sold all my issues. It started off in 1938 as DETECTIVE YARNS, then changed to BLACK HOOD DETECTIVE, HOODED DETECTIVE, CRACK DETECTIVE, FAMOUS DETECTIVE, and finally bit the dust in 1957 as CRACK DETECTIVE AND MYSTERY STORIES. Whew!
