Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Best Western, September 1935

The inaugural issue of this pulp had quite a line-up of authors: Max Brand, Clarence E. Mulford (with a Hopalong Cassidy story), J. Allan Dunn, Frank Richardson Pierce, and Paul Evan Lehman. Hard to imagine how many millions of hours of Western entertainment those five authors have provided for readers over the years.

BEST WESTERN had an interesting history. It started in 1935 and after 20 or so issues, died in 1942, perhaps a victim of the war time paper restrictions. Then it was revived in 1948 by a different publisher and lasted until 1957.
