Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Blue Book, August 1935
BLUE BOOK during the 1930s was without a doubt one of the best pulps ever. This issue from August 1935 sports a great Vikings vs. Indians cover by Herbert Morton Stoops, who did nearly all the covers for the magazine during this era. I read this issue several years ago, and it has a really solid line-up of authors with an Arms and Men story by H. Bedford-Jones, a mystery by William J. Makin and another by Robert R. Mill featuring his State Policeman character Tiny David, adventure yarns by Leland Jamieson and George F. Worts, and a serial installment from one of William L. Chester's Kioga of the Wilderness novels. Every issue of BLUE BOOK I've read from this time period has at least three outstanding stories in it, often more.
