Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Wild Western Novels, January 1936
No, not WILD WEST WEEKLY, which was also a fine Western pulp magazine. WILD WESTERN NOVELS was part of the Red Star group. I don't know how many issues there were, but this is the first one. That's a pretty bland cover, but what a line-up of authors: Clarence E. Mulford (with a story about Hopalong Cassidy and the rest of the Bar 20 crew), Harry Sinclair Drago, Alan LeMay (author of THE SEARCHERS, of course, but a prolific pulpster long before that), and pulp veterans Stephen Payne and Jack Bertin. I would have been happy to read it, that's for sure.
