Thanks for the great covers, again. Wouldn't normally recommend climbing through a barb wire fence with a loaded gun, however...

Ron's right! That WEST cover records an amazing feat!

I imagine that one could build quite an extensive pulp collection just by having every magazine that your grandfather had a story in. Any idea just how many there were? I realize I could most likely find that info in your book about him, but I am feeling a bit lazy this morning (nothing new about that)so I figured I'd go to the source.

At last count there were 440 stories in Wild West Weekly. Then there are the other pulps, includng the WEIRD TALES stories pre-WWW, and all those after WWW. My aunt and uncle collected most of the WWW with his stories in them, and have also copies of most of the others. They fill two large bookcases.
