Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Frontier Stories, Spring 1947

I don't know who the artist is, but I like the cover on this issue of FRONTIER STORIES. There's plenty to like about the authors in this issue, too, including L.P. Holmes, Dan Cushman, Joseph Chadwick, Lee E. Wells, and M. Howard Lane. I've seen white horses with that same design on them in red paint on other FRONTIER STORIES covers, so that artist must have liked the image.

It seems to me that the cover artist could be the ubiquitous Sam Cherry.

I submit that the cover is by Allen Anderson for the following not-entirely-convincing reasons...

1) It looks like Allen Anderson to me.

2) Anderson painted some covers for Frontier Stories.

3) The horse's paint job is much like the one on this horse, on this cover of Frontier Stories, which actually IS by Allen Anderson.

I thought about Anderson since he included horses on a lot of his covers (or alien, horse-like creatures if we're talking about PLANET STORIES). Somehow this horse, and the one on the other cover, look a little more normal than how Anderson usually painted them. However, given the publisher and the time period, it probably is his work. Cherry doesn't appear to have done any work for Fiction House, according to the FMI, which of course does still have some gaps in it.

Another one I think of is Richard Case.
