Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Nickel Western, February 1933
Here's something you don't see very often on a Western pulp cover: a cowboy in a shootout with a guy in an airplane. But it's certainly a striking image. As for the contents, the line-up of authors doesn't include many familiar names. John Colohan turned up a lot in the Popular Publications Western pulps, and George C. Henderson was pretty prolific, too. The lead novel is by Westmoreland Gray. I don't know if the stories are any good, but that cover might have induced me to pick up a copy if I'd been browsing the newsstand in 1933 and had an extra nickel in my pocket.
