Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Argosy, May 13, 1939

For the last pulp post of the year, we return to an old favorite magazine, ARGOSY. I'm not quite sure what's going on in this cover by Marshall Frantz for the May 13, 1939 issue, but it's intriguing, I'll give it that. And I'm sure the stories inside are pretty good, too, since the authors include Donald Barr Chidsey, Hugh Pentecost (Judson Philips), Philip Ketchum, Fred MacIsaac, Richard Sale, and Bennett Foster. That's a really good lineup.

I'd be interested in the MacIsaac story. The tales of his series character The Rambler, assembled in two collections (so far) by Altus, are really enjoyable.
He seems like a dependable, and not much examined, pulpster.

I have the first of those Rambler collections but haven't read it yet, likewise his novel BALATA, also published by Altus Press. I don't know anything about MacIsaac except that I seem to remember reading that he committed suicide, like too many other pulp authors. But I may be wrong about that.
