Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Ace-High Detective Magazine, August 1936
This cover by Malvin Singer reminds me a little of a Weird Menace cover, and the presence of Wyatt Blassingame among the authors is also reminiscent of the Shudder Pulp genre, since he was one of its leading practitioners. ACE-HIGH DETECTIVE MAGAZINE appears to have been a straight-up detective pulp, though, with stories in this issue by Fred MacIsaac, Norbert Davis, Thomas Walsh, Lawrence Treat, and William E. Barrett, who went on to write the novel LILIES OF THE FIELD many years later. Looks like a good issue.
