Woolfolk Records 1950/03

Quality, Orbit, and Fawcett continue as buyers. Arizona Raines, at least, is a feature we haven't seen in the records before.

I haven't seen Wanted 28 or seen it indexed, but the first two crime stories this month would have to fit there—William Woolfolk wrote stories published in 27 last month, and in 29 later this month. These and last month's "Death Trap" may have been published under the editor's titles and page totals.

The Minstrel Man is a recurring villain; I've seen him in one of the scattered Monte Hale issues available scanned, but it's not this story with Mother Goose rhymes.

  1. The Minstrel Man appeared in MONTE HALE #58 and 66 and WESTERN HERO #89 and 91. The only one of those I've got is MH #58, and he isn't doing Mother Goose songs in that.
