Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Adventure Trails, July 1938
The Western pulps weren't the only ones that liked bright red and yellow covers. This is the first issue of a short-lived pulp called ADVENTURE TRAILS, which certainly promises plenty of action and excitement. The only author in this issue I'm really familiar with is Eugene Cunningham. But then a little investigation turns up the fact that "Rodney Blake" was really none other than my old favorite H. Bedford-Jones. I don't think I knew this before now. Bedford-Jones used the pseudonym on at least a dozen stories, most of them Westerns that appeared in lower-tier pulps. For that reason alone I'd grab this one if I ever saw a copy of it, which isn't that likely.
