Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Argosy, October 17, 1931

A pretty good Mountie cover by Paul Stahr on this issue of ARGOSY, and dang, look at those authors! All-Star Number is right. Erle Stanley Gardner (a "Whispering Sands" story), Johnston McCulley (an installment of "Zorro Rides Again"), George F. Worts, J. Allan Dunn, and Frank L. Packard, among others. That's a bunch of good reading there, I'll bet.

Love the Whispering Sands stories. Erle Stanley Gardner wrote so much more than just Perry Mason. (Love those too.) His output is frightening.

It seems like you could hardly go wrong with Argosy for most of the 1930s. The more Gardner I read the more I appreciate him, and Dunn can be very good sometimes.

I've liked just about everything I've read by Gardner (for some reason I'm not that fond of the Lester Leith stories, but they're still okay), but the Whispering Sands stories are some of my favorites.
