Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Thrilling Sports, Summer 1947
And now, as they say, for something completely different. I thought with the baseball playoffs getting underway, it would be a good time for a baseball cover. I've never read a sports pulp. I owned one or two, once, but never got around to reading them. But I'll bet some of the stories were pretty darned good, because the professional pulpsters could turn their hand to almost any genre and come up with an entertaining yarn. This authors in this issue include my old editor and mentor Sam Merwin Jr., prolific Western pulp contributor T.W. Ford, air war author Robert Sidney Bowen, and detective and G-Man writer William O'Sullivan. Sounds like a promising line-up to me.
