Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Speed Adventure Stories, September 1943
Circus themes show up now and then on pulp covers. Here's one on an issue of SPEED ADVENTURE STORIES. This issue has a story by E. Hoffmann Price and three by Victor Rousseau: one under his most common pseudonym Lew Merrill, one as by Hugh Speer, and one as by R.T. Maynard (a reprint of a story previously published under the Lew Merrill name). The other story is by Robert Ahern, a little-known pulpster who published only a couple of dozen stories between the late Twenties and the mid-Forties.
