Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Dime Mystery Magazine, June 1934

A Norman Saunders cover yesterday, a Walter Baumhofer cover today. That's an all-star weekend as far as cover artists go. And some all-star authors in this issue of DIME MYSTERY MAGAZINE, too, including Hugh B. Cave, Wyatt Blassingame, William B. Rainey (who was also Wyatt Blassingame), Arthur Leo Zagat, G.T. Fleming-Roberts, and John H. Knox. I love lurid but eye-catching covers like this. Where else but on a Weird Menace pulp are you going to find a hunchback with an eyepatch?

Hugh Cave has been a favorite of mine since childhood. Zagat and Blassingame are also consistently good. While Weird Menace pulps had many absurd stories, with good/great writers, the format worked.
