Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Western Trails, January 1939
That's a colorful, action-packed cover on this issue of WESTERN TRAILS, the long-running Ace pulp. I don't know who the artist is. Nor do I know anything about the author of the lead novel, Andor de Soos, except that's not the sort of name I normally associate with a Western writer. But this issue also has stories by J. Edward Leithead, Joe Archibald, and Claude Rister. Supposedly the Ace Western pulps, WESTERN TRAILS and WESTERN ACES, were considered salvage markets by a lot of writers, but I've enjoyed all the issues I've read.
