Woolfolk Records 1948/02

Hit 55 cover--The BruteThe publisher roll call this month: Fawcett, Quality, and Timely.

As usual, some Timely stories were published longer than William Woolfolk recorded the submissions in his notebook—the information in bold, such as those new page counts, forms my additions to the records.

My Tom Mix story identification is an educated guess from seeing the issue indexed, but not seeing the issue itself. UPDATE: It wasn't "The Tale of the Lonesome Cowboy" in Tom Mix 9, as I'd thought possible--it's this one. Now that I've seen "Bullets Can't Spell," I can see that the blurb uses the phrase "tale of the desert rats."

Speaking of descriptions vs. published titles, I had to flip through a number of Timely stories in this timeframe to track down all four of this month's; the Arizona Annie was the only one where the editors' title came anywhere near the notebook description.
