Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Blue Book, April 1942

By the spring of 1942, most of Herbert Morton Stoops' covers on BLUE BOOK were war-themed, not surprisingly, and so was a lot of the content. This issue has a great line-up of authors including H. Bedford-Jones, Richard Sale, Georges Surdez, Frederick Painton, Richard Howells Watkins, Jacland Marmur, a Tiny David story by Robert R. Mill, and a Free Lances of Diplomacy story by Clarence Herbert New. BLUE BOOK really packed in the great reading.

Sounds like they were leading the war effort on the printed page.

BLUE BOOK always interested in war fiction, historical or contemporary. But they ran some impressive crime fiction among other items...I've mentioned elsewhere that I find the novella form of SHIELD FOR MURDER William McGivern placed with BB better than the novel form.

Big fan of the Blue Books from 1932 to 1940
