Visit the Altus Press James B. Hendryx site
I was amazingly lucky to find a copy of this issue of Argosy magazine from May 21st, 1938, with the novella Halfaday Creek, by James B. Hendryx.
The hero of our story is Corporal Downey of the Northwest Mounted Police, which is just right for a pulp. Of course, I bought it for the amazing cover, but I look forward to reading the novella in full!
I've had good fortune recently in acquiring fantastic pulp stuff; apparently Mountie pulp is temporarily out of favour (ahem), and thus, I am one of the lucky few to benefit!
ADDENDUM: I was recently informed that Altus press is making the entire Halfaday Creek saga (yep, a saga) available; they aren't all Mountie stories, but Hendryx is worth the time and money!
From the site:
James B. Hendryx (1880-1963) was the author of more than 50 novels and anthologies, and wrote hundreds of stories. And Hendryx wrote what he knew, spending time in Alaska, Canada, and the Wyoming badlands. But he’s best known for his characters set around the outlaw community of Halfaday Creek in the Yukon. Set during the Gold Rush of the late 1890s, Hendryx penned over a hundred stories featuring these characters over the span of 25 years for magazines such as West, Dime Western, New Western, Argosy, and the primary home for the Halfaday Creek series, Short Stories.
Below is my list of Mountie movies and serials! They span from 1914 to modern times, and cover ever style and format; silent, talkie, b&w, colour, film, videotape, & DVD! Enjoy!
