THE PULP CALENDAR: July 31
A suspenseful cover draws you into this 1937 Detective Fiction Weekly, in which Richard Sale's cameraman detective Candid Jones apparently faces a criminal counterpart. I think Sale's title is a little unfair, however, since we all know that cameras don't kill people, people do! This promising-looking number also boasts stories by hard-boiled heavyweights Cornell Woolrich and Norbert Davis, along with contributions from J. A. L. Chambliss, Thomas W. Duncan, Cyril Plunket, Will Sandman and Roger Torrey, as well as the latest installment of B. B. Fowler's Graduation in Red. It definitely looks good.
