Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Lariat Story, November 1943
LARIAT STORY usually had good covers, and this one is no exception. I think it's a little unusual with that dark blue color scheme, and only a little red and yellow visible. As for the authors inside, Les Savage Jr. and William R. Cox, both excellent writers, are there, along with prolific pulpsters Lee E. Wells and John Jo Carpenter. Also present is Wilfred McCormick, probably better remembered for a lengthy series of young adult sports novels featuring stalwart high school athlete Bronc Burnett. I read a bunch of those when I was a kid. None of them had girls in them like the one on this cover, as I recall.
