Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Romance Round-Up, November 1939

This Western romance pulp lasted for 21 issues in the Thirties and early Forties, which makes it fairly short-lived for the genre. It published some excellent authors, though, as in this issue with Harry F. Olmsted, L.P. Holmes, Paul Evan Lehman, and John A. Saxon. I probably would have read this one, although having the word "Romance" in the title might have scared me off if I'd been a kid in 1939. That cover is by George Gross, by the way.

The words "romance" and "cowpoke" should never appear on the same cover.

IT WOULD HAVE DRAWN ME IN. one of my favorites is THE TONTO WOMAN by Elmore Leonard. Tell me that isn't a great romance.
