My Favorite Christmas Covers: WESTERN STORY, Dec 27. 1941

To get myself in the Christmas spirit, I'm going to post some of my favorite Christmas pulp covers - one a day until Christmas day.

This one has to be one of my all-time favorites. What child wouldn't want a pony for Christmas?

Kinda wish the scan was a little better, but maybe some day I'll be lucky enough to get an original copy.

I like this cover also Laurie. Street and Smith had a great tradition of holiday issues. Many of their pulp titles had special Christmas issues with several holiday stories in each magazine. Not only WESTERN STORY followed this practice year after year, but others also such as DETECTIVE STORY, POPULAR, LOVE STORY, etc.

This will be a great series to get us into the Holiday spirit. I'll be looking forward to a different cover each day.

For Christmas covers of a different sort, check out Saucy Stories 12/35, Black Mask 1/48, 10-Story Detective 2/46, and 10-Story Book 12/37.

Without taking the time to look I think Argosy had some, also Railroad Stories. Not to mention Popular and many of the Romance pulps.

This cover makes me think in a sort of ciwboy santa claus

We were lucky to have a cat, much less a pony. Great cover and I look forward to the rest.

Thanks for running these Christmas covers, Laurie.
