Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Crime Busters, July 1938

Another great cover by Norman Saunders on this issue of CRIME BUSTERS, and look at the line-up of authors: Walter B. Gibson (writing as Maxwell Grant) with a Norgil the Magician story; Lester Dent (a Click Rush, Gadget Man story); Theodore Tinsley (a Carrie Cashin story); Steve Fisher (a Big Red Brennan story); Frank Gruber (a Jim Strong story); Alan Hathway (a Colby Lyman story); and George Allan Moffatt (a Duncan Dean story). Now, I'm not familiar with all those series characters, but I know the authors and know they could be counted on to produce entertaining yarns. And any pulp with Dent, Gibson, Gruber, Tinsley, and Fisher has got to be good reading!

Incredible array of talent. And I love it that the ghost writers for Doc Savage and The Shadow all share cover credit...together! It's like a super-hero team-up!

I really liked the Norgil stories.

Yeah, it's very cool to see Gibson, Dent, and Tinsley listed like that on the cover.

I've never read any of the Norgil stories, but I just ordered a copy of the Mysterious Press collection of them from years ago.
