Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Short Stories, July 1951

SHORT STORIES was still using those red sun covers even this late in its run. This one is by Everett Raymond Kinstler. By this time, the magazine was using a lot of reprints. Every story in this issue, in fact, is a reprint. But with authors such as Ernest Haycox, William Chamberlain, Cliff Farrell, Bennett Foster, Edward Parrish Ware, Jackson Gregory, and Stephen Chalmers, most readers probably still got their money's worth. By the way, I have carried a knife in my teeth before, and while climbing up a cliff, to boot. Sometimes I think it's a wonder my friends and I survived childhood.

Thank you for the happy and bright childhood that you have not forgotten over the years, thank you for your amazing blog, dear James. Each of your posts is like a breath of clean air.

It looks like John Belushi in ANIMAL HOUSE.

Thanks, Vladimir.

Jeff, I can definitely see that. I think the guy also bears a resemblance to Dudley Moore.

And a little Robert Newton from TREASURE ISLAND.
