History of Wild West Weekly available at the Black Horse Express

If you're interested in the history of pulp fiction magazines and in particular Wild West Weekly, go to the Black Horse Express magazine and check out my article on the history of Wild West Weekly magazine. This is a condensed version of the history that appears in the Prologue and Epilogue of my grandfather's memoir: Pulp Writer: Twenty Years in the American Grub Street.

Quite the cover on that pulp!

Yes, it's pretty striking, huh? Those years, 1938 and 1938 were the best for covers for Wild West Weekly. Maybe I'll post some more here soon.

Hi, A friend of mine has a big trunk full of Wild West Weekly's from the 1920's up to late 1930's .

They are in very nice condition.

One of his relatives must have subscribed to them.

He wanted me to see if they were worth anything. Are there collectors out there?

Yes, there are Ed, although WWWs usually aren't priced as high as some of the pulp magazines like The Shadow, Weird Tales, etc. If you contact me at, I'd like to get more info on what issues he has.
