Various: Spicy Adventure Sampler. V1. 2 Dec 2011

Spicy Adventure Stories was one of the notorious Spicy pulps published by Culture Publications in the late 1930s which concentrated on a simple formula - fast action stories laced with sex. It ran for nine years under that title before the forces of reform forced it to change to the rather more sedate Speed Adventure Stories.
Note that from late 1935 through late 1937, most issues appeared in two different versions - one uncensored and the other self-censored. The censored version was identifiable by a star within a box located at the top of the cover. Little information is known about the differences between these issues but some, at least, contained different stories and possibly had different covers. The covers for the censored versions are displayed in parallel below the uncensored covers.

BLACK MURDER—CARL MOORE

A story pulsing with the passionate beat of voodoo drums . . . A story of mystic fate, and of a man who was part of the black throbbing heart of Haiti

THE SHANGHAI JESTER—ROBERT LESLIE BELLEM

ADVENTURE'S END—ROBERT LESLIE BALLAM

Tate Shevlin pits himself against mighty powers— smashes through incredible oriental horrors—in his last magnificent adventure with the Golden Girl

CAVE OF THE CRISS-CROSS KNIVES—C. C. Spruce

“And one of you will die!” -- A command of doom, that cast them on the forbidden island. An island of purple gods and weird, savage customs

HOT BLOOD—ARTHUR WALLACE

SMUGGLER’S ISLAND—ATWATER CULPEPPER

Wrecked on a tropical isle! A situation to test men—and break them—when thwarted romance and dangerous loot are shipmates

TALISMAN OF DOOM...—JAMES W. MARVIN

Was her token of love a signal for murder? A grigging tale of a strange fate—and of mystery flying the airways of death OWN out of the grey dawn, like roaring evangels of death, the nine Fokkers plunged in three tight triangles, straight at the three American Spads on sunrise patrol. Hidden a moment before in the scudding clouds, the Germans now appeared with the suddenness of black ghosts.

TATTOOED BLONDE—ELLERY WATSON CALDER

Branded! The word on her breast was dynamite to the angry mob. But Terry Dixon had a hunch that bared a startling plot and saved a beautiful girl.

WHITE MEAT—DON KING

Fate can be ghastly— death horrible — in the savage heart of Africa. A stirring tale of jungle perils.

THE BLACK 13—Ellery Watson Calder

He laid his last five-spot on 13—and a lovely girl claimed his winnings! What did she know of the grim secret that made him a hunted fugitive?
