Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Gold Seal Detective, June 1936
Let's see...bondage, cleavage, and a dagger,,,that's a pretty edgy cover for 1936. GOLD SEAL DETECTIVE is a pretty obscure pulp, too. The best known authors in this issue are Norman A. Daniels and Frederick C. Painton. Of course, Clark Aiken, one of the authors featured on the cover, was really Frederick C. Davis, the original author on the Operator #5 series and always a top-notch pulp writer. One of the other authors, David A. Norman, was actually Norman Daniels. And Ralph Powers was a house-name, so there's no telling who he was. All in all, probably an issue worth reading for detective fans.
