Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Western Short Stories, September 1937

This issue leads off with a story by "Rodney Blake", who as I discovered recently was really my old favorite, H. Bedford-Jones. I've never read any of his stories as by Blake and I don't have this issue so I can't read this one, but it caught my interest when looking for covers. And this issue has a decent one by J.W. Scott. No other big names in the line-up of authors unless you count Carmony Gove, Ken Jason, and Rex Evans, who were fairly prolific in the Western pulps, although pretty much forgotten these days, even among pulp fans.

I've been thinking about this cover by J.W. Scott. He often used the same two characters for his hero and the girl. The first cover painting I ever bought in 1970 was by Scott(Complete Detective, 1939) and had the same two faces on it as on this cover.
