Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Western Rodeo Romances, Fall 1950

Another RANCH ROMANCES competitor, although even more specialized with its emphasis on rodeo stories. A good line-up of authors, though, including Robert J. Hogan (of G-8 and His Battle Aces fame), Frank Richardson Pierce, Joe Archibald, Clinton Dangerfield, Edwin P. Hicks, and Cliff Walters. (The fact that this issue sports a cover featuring a good-looking redhead with cleavage and a smoking six-gun had nothing to do with me deciding to post it, of course.)

This is a title that I don't remember ever seeing. In fact THE ADVENTURE HOUSE GUIDE TO THE PULPS does not even list it in the checklist of pulp magazines. Another rare and short lived title.

It's a continuation of RODEO ROMANCES, Walker. The issue in this post is the first one under this title. It ran for at least two more issues, but I doubt it lasted any longer than that. All three of the issues under WESTERN RODEO ROMANCES are indexed in the FMI.
