Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Ace-High Magazine, May 1937

Artist Tom Lovell may have featured this iconic trio on more Western pulp covers than anyone else, and here they are, rushing into battle: the Stalwart Cowboy, the Old Geezer, and the Angry, Gun-Toting Redhead. Actually, the redhead's not toting a gun on this cover, but you just know she either recently was or will be very soon. This issue of ACE-HIGH MAGAZINE (also known as ACE-HIGH WESTERN MAGAZINE at various points in its existence) features the usual stellar lineup of authors: Walt Coburn, Harry F. Olmsted, Gunnison Steele, Art Lawson, John G. Pearsol, Foster-Harris, and Robert E. Mahaffey.

You may have mentioned this already, but if so, I don’t remember. Have you yourself ever written a story or novel featuring this trio of iconic characters? After your fun Longarm Crossover/Team up books, I would think the Ultimate Old Geezer / Stalwart Hero / Angry Gun-totin’ Redhead Adventure would be right up your alley. I’d read it, for sure!

I never have, but I've been thinking about it lately!
