Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Far East Adventure Stories, September 1931


Nice evocative cover on this issue of FAR EAST ADVENTURE STORIES, a pulp that's rather rare these days, I believe. Inside are stories by H. Bedford-Jones, Hugh B. Cave, Geoffrey Vace (also Hugh B. Cave), Bob du Soe, and others. This appears to be a fine issue of a short-lived but excellent adventure pulp.

As far as I know they are pretty darn rare. I think this is the title that came up in the auction at one of the last Pulpcons and one guy got all for several thousands dollars Walker Martin would most likely know better than I do.

Like Barry says, this title is rare and only lasted for 12 issues. At the auction some issues went for around a thousand dollars each. It probably had a low circulation and low print run.

I love those off trail titles, probably never own or read one...

"Far East" just SOUNDS like exotic adventure, doesn't it? I wonder why it didn't sell better?

As 1931 was the start of the Depression and the magazine sold for 20 cents, that might have been something to do with it
