MAMMOTH MYSTERY, June 1946, GGA cover

This Ziff-Davis pulp edited by future mystery-novel author and Hollywood scriptwriter Howard Browne was a better product than many other crime-fiction mags on the market at that time, although it rarely featured big names. This one is no different than most: entertaining but just short of noteworthy. But it sports a classic Good Girl Art […]

DIME DETECTIVE, August 1948, Race Williams & more

One of the last issues in this formidable pulp’s peak period, the August 1948 is graced with a terrific action cover by the great Norman Saunders. The lead story, Carroll John Daly’s “Race Williams’ Double Date,” marks the penultimate appearance of the original hard-boiled dick in Dime Detective‘s pages. There’s also a terrific novelette by […]

JUNGLE STORIES, Spring 1944

A very nice wartime sample of this popular Fiction House title, with the near-obligatory GGA cover (painted, as most of them were, by George Gross). Issues of Jungle are fairly uniform, beginning with the lead story in which Ki-Gor the Jungle Lord and his luscious lady Helene encounter a lost civilization ruled by an evil […]

MASKED RIDER WESTERN, January 1944, scarce issue

This long-running Thrilling Group pulp survived the wartime paper shortages, but some mid-Forties issues are seen less frequently than others, and this is one of them. The Masked Rider novel, “The Devil’s Range,” is written by Donald Bayne Hobart. Condition: About Fine. Front cover has stress crack emanating from spine just both “Jan.” Spine is […]

Edgar Wallace, THE DAY OF UNITING, high-grade 1st edition

New York: Mystery League, 1930. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Although not an uncommon book, this part-mystery, part SF Wallace novel is curiously forgotten. Originally published complete in a 1921 issue of Street & Smith’s The Popular Magazine, it concerns the mysterious deaths and/or disappearances of men who might hold a secret if worldwide import. This […]

AMAZING STORIES, December 1932

A good representative issue from the early Teck Publications period, when the magazine was still bedsheet-sized and used the original logo designed for Hugo Gernsback. Cover by Leo Morey, who also supplies interior illustrations. Contributions by regulars David H. Keller, Harl Vincent, and Ed Earl Repp, among others.  This copy is Near Fine. The cover […]

ADVENTURE, July 1939

Lovely copy with William Wills cover. Condition: Fine, with very minor edge wear keeping it from getting our top grade. But this is an exceptionally clean and tight copy whose text block has just a hint of yellowing. PRICE INCLUDES SHIPPING AND HANDLING TO DOMESTIC BUYERS. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PAY EXTRA ACCORDING TO WEIGHT AND DESTINATION, AND […]

ADVENTURE, October 1940

Very strong issue, one of the last edited by Howard Bloomfield. Walter Baumhofer cover, excellent story lineup. Fairfax Downey’s “War Horse” covers the same ground — almost exactly — as the later novel made into a 2011 movie by Steven Spielberg. About Fine, very light handling wear. PRICE INCLUDES SHIPPING AND HANDLING TO DOMESTIC BUYERS. INTERNATIONAL […]
