Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Western Aces, February 1942
I was in the mood for a Norman Saunders cover, because you know there'll always be plenty of action going on in one of those. That's certainly true here. The inside appears to have been a good issue, with a lead novel by J. Edward Leithead, one of my favorites, and stories by Gunnison Steele, Lee Bond, and Allen K. Echols, among other, more unfamiliar names. Leithead had quite a history with WESTERN ACES during the Forties, appearing in nearly every issue with stories under his own name and the pseudonym Wilson Covert. All the ones I've read have been very good, too.
