BLUE BOOK, March 1936, ERB (Tarzan)

Last Three Issues of Alan G. Barbour’s SERIAL QUARTERLY

This mid-Sixties chapbook—with covers printed on glossy card stock and interiors on high-quality bond paper—reprinted photos, poster art, and chapter synopses from vintage pressbooks of old cliffhanger serials.  In those pre-video days, when chapter plays rarely played on TV anymore, Serial Quarterly was not only entertaining but also valuable as a reference tool.  We have […]

WILD WEST STORIES AND COMPLETE NOVEL, June 1929

J. Samuel Sisco’s serial-like “The Mad Rider” lives up to the magazine’s title: It is indeed a complete book-length novel, consuming 102 of the issue’s 128 pages. Twenties issues of Wild West Stories and Complete Novel Magazine are increasingly rare, especially in high grade. This one is basically Fine, barring a little edgewear at the […]
