Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Top-Notch, June 1936
TOP-NOTCH was a good adventure magazine. Several of Robert E. Howard's El Borak and other Middle Eastern adventure yarns first appeared there. This issue doesn't have REH, but it does have an excellent machine gun cover and a line-up of solid pulp authors such as Norman A. Daniels, S. Gordon Gurwit, Hapsburg Liebe, William Merriam Rouse, and Leslie McFarlane, who wrote the early Hardy Boys novels as "Franklin W. Dixon".
