THE PULP CALENDAR: September 9
Another beautiful H. W. Scott cover fronts this 1939 Western Story, advertising a tough-sounding "book-length novel" by Luke Short. At 48 pages "Lead Won't Lie" is pretty substantial, but whether it's book-length depends on what you mean by a book. It and the third installment of Stuart Hardy's Madman's Mesa leave room for short stories by Van Cort (aka Wyatt Blassingame), Norman A. Fox, Kenneth Gilbert (most likely an animal story) and Harry F. Olmsted. Short and the cover are probably enough to make this issue worthwhile.
