Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Blue Ribbon Western, November 1947
An unusual perspective on the cover of this issue of BLUE RIBBON WESTERN, something you ran into from time to time, especially in the late Forties, which seemed to be an era of greater experimentation in Western pulp covers. It's hard to say much about the authors in this issue. Cliff Campbell was a house-name, so there's no telling who wrote the lead novel, and the others are all unknown to me with the exception of Thomas Thursday, who was a prolific pulpster for more than forty years.
