Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Super-Detective, February 1950

As you probably can tell from the cover, SUPER-DETECTIVE was put out by Trojan Publications, part of the same stable as all the Spicy/Speed titles, and as a result, you get a racy cover, at least one story by Robert Leslie Bellem, and a bunch of stories by authors who are either house-names or one-shots. However, that's a good cover, and Bellem is always worth reading, and chances are that some of the other stories are worth reading, too. One oddity is that while Bellem is credited on the cover as the author of "Gambling Corpse", according to the Fictionmags Index (where this scan came from), the story is credited in the Table of Contents to Ellery Watson Calder, one of Bellem's well-known pseudonyms. It doesn't really matter either way, of course.

I own a copy of that pulp (SOMEwhere). If I remember correctly, the cover is by George Rozen.
