Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Adventure, January 15, 1935

This issue of ADVENTURE isn't exactly loaded with big names. The cover is by Ray Dean, who was much more prolific as a pulp cover artist and interior illustrator under his real name, Stockton Mulford. With the first issue of a serial called "The Sea Plunderers" in this issue, the cover is pretty effective. Speaking of "The Sea Plunderers", its author, Berry Fleming, wrote this serial and a handful of other stories, but that's the extent of his pulp career. I don't know a thing about him. The most well-known of the other authors is probably William Chamberlain, a long-time pulpster and, in his spare time, a general in the United States Army. Also on hand are John Murray Reynolds and Robert E. Pinkerton, two names that are at least recognizable to pulp fans, and lesser-known Tex O'Reilly, Palmer Hoyt, Alfred Batson, Eddy Orcutt, and Andrew A. Caffrey.
