Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Western Aces, November 1947
I've read this issue, but it was more than ten years ago so I don't remember much about the stories except that I enjoyed them. This was the first issue of WESTERN ACES I ever read. Salvage market or not, I've found it to be a pretty good Western pulp. I do remember the J. Edward Leithead story in this issue, which is a modern-day rodeo yarn. It's the first Leithead story I read, and it turned me into a fan of his work, too. At the time I read this issue, I didn't know that "Wilson L. Covert" was also Leithead. Other authors in this issue include D.B. Newton, Giff Cheshire, Wayne Overholser, Gunnison Steele, Joseph Chadwick, and Glenn Low. That's a darned good line-up.
