Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Popular Detective, June 1943

I'm not sure exactly what's happening on this cover, but it's a creepy, effective image anyway. Authors in this issue include Norman Daniels, Joe Archibald, and Dale Clark. Walt Bruce, author of the Dr. Zeng series, was really W.T. Ballard and Robert Leslie Bellem. I've never read any of those stories, but I like Ballard and Bellem, so maybe I should.

The Dr. Zeng stories are lots of fun. E. Hoffman Price wrote the first one before Ballard & Bellem collaborated on six more. All have been gathered in a single volume by Altus Press (2011).

Thanks for the tip, Steve. The Dr. Zeng collection now resides on my Kindle, waiting for a spare moment--although I don't know when that will be.

Dorothy is definitely not in Kansas anymore.
