THE PULP CALENDAR: June 19
Here's as bland an Argosy cover as you'll ever see, but the contents inside look pretty promising. They include a double dose of Frederick Faust, represented by Max Brand's short story "Just Irish" and the latest installment of George Challis's serial The Smoking Land. Eustace L. Adams' perhaps Argosy's ace serial writer in this period, starts The Big Wind Blows, while Johnston McCulley continues one of his "Zorro-land" adventures, Senor Vulture, and L. G. Blochman concludes Red Snow at Darjeeling. The standalone stuff includes novelettes by Theodore Roscoe and Richard Sale and a short story by Cornell Woolrich. That lineup deserves better than what V. E. Pyles delivered up front.
