Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Cowboy Stories, October 1934


Pretty violent cover on this issue of COWBOY STORIES. Most of the authors inside are unfamiliar to me. The ones I recognize are S. Omar Barker, Wallace K. Norman, and Tom J. Hopkins. I suspect it's a pretty decent issue anyway. Most Street & Smith pulps were.

COWBOY STORIES is another favorite of mine. From 1925 into 1933 it was a Clayton magazine and used some of the best artists like Nick Eggenhofer, Baumhofer, Desoto. Then in early 1933 the company went bankrupt. Harold Hersey talks about what happened in PULPWOOD EDITOR.

Street & Smith then took over the title in late 1933 and ran it until it died in 1937.

F. Orlin Temaine edited ASTOUNDING STORIES, CLUES, COWBOY STORIES, and TOP-NOTCH. There is some overlap of writers between the magazines- Murray Leinster being a notable example. You have Donald Wandrei in ASTOUNDING and CLUES, E. Hoffmann Price in CLUES and TOP-NOTCH, Hal Field Leslie in CLUES and COWBOY STORIES etc.

I like the looks of this cover, eye catching but does seem a bit violent for time it was published. I have only heard of one of these writers but do enjoy these old cowboy stories.
