Saturday Morning Western Pulp: .44 Western, May 1951
A nice simple cover on this fairly late issue of .44 WESTERN. There are several reprints in here, common for this era: a yarn by John Colohan from a 1935 issue of DIME WESTERN; a Bennett Foster novel that originally appeared in ARGOSY in 1939; a Bart Cassidy story probably by Harry F. Olmsted also from 1939; and a 1935 story by Dennison Rust (a name that's always struck me as a pseudonym, although I don't know who used it). The new stories are by John Reese and John Jo Carpenter. Reprints or not, an issue well worth reading, I think.
