Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Argosy, March 30, 1940

ARGOSY was still a full-fledged pulp in 1940, as you can probably tell by this octopus-fighting cover by Rudolph Belarski. Despite Foster-Harris's name being on the cover, he's not listed in the contents for this issue in the Fictionmags Index. However, there are stories by Donald Barr Chidsey, Johnston McCulley, Borden Chase, Robert Arthur, Jack Byrne, Kenneth Perkins, and David V. Reed, so that's no shortage of good authors.

Some time around this period Munsey started to have circulation problems which eventually led to them selling their entire line of magazines to Popular Publications. I wonder if the story will ever come out as to what happened. Since Altus Press now owns the rights to both Munsey and Popular Publications, perhaps they have records or correspondence indicating what happened.
