Western Action (Novels Magazine)
The numbering of this magazine is slightly odd as it ran as Western Action Novels from v2 #1, March 1936 to v4 #6, October 1938 before simultaneously changing to Western Action with v5 #1, December 1938 (as which it ran until 1960) AND restarting as v1 #1, November 1938 (as which it ran for only five issues, interleaved with the renamed version).
British, and Canadian, reprint editions exist for the magazine.
THE TRAIL TRAP—T.W. FORD
Little Joe Bodie had to catch the murderer of Solitaire Tice alone, for Marshal Ellard was out of town. And no one figured Little Joe was worth cooperating with!
MITIGATING CIRCUMSTANCES—LON WILLIAMS
Judge Wardlow Steele had to learn his profession as he went along . . .
PROPTER DEFECTUM—LON WILLIAMS
What seemed like a plain case of murder was now shaping up as an accident—but Judge Steele figured that this accident was too danged convenient, and too pat. . .
A MATTER OF VENUE—LON WILLIAMS
It was these danged technicalities in the law that made Judge Wardlow Steele curse the day he took to the bench, and yearn for Vigilante justice!
AND SATAN CAME ALSO—LON WILLIAMS
The more experience he got, the surer Judge Steele became that he didn’t belong on the bench. And here was a murderer before him—but Defense Attorney Demeree was so positive he’d acquit the scoundrel that he didn’t challenge a single juror!
ONCE IN JEOPARDY—LON WILLIAMS
At the mere sight of Cynthia Bondell, Judge Steele knew the jury would bring in any verdict her heart desired. But the judge also felt that nothing in the world would be better for Flat Creek than the hanging of defendant – one to which Cynthia was rumored to be engaged!
THE WALKING JURY—LON WILLIAMS
It was obvious that the woman seated in the front row of Flat Creek’s crowded courtroom could be the determining factor in this case. Guilty or not, the prisoner would be acquitted it she continued to play upon the jurors’ sentiments. Judge Steele, however, was immune . . .
CLUE OF THE DOG CLAW—LON WILLIAMS
Judge Steele Story
KEY WITNESS—LON WILLIAMS
before him, or the lawyers who wrangled over them. Be-consarned if he wouldn’t rather hang French Demeree and Wade Claybrook instead of the latest prisoner!
JEWEL OF GOLD—LON WILLIAMS
Be-consarned if bein’ a judge wasn’t one step away from the looney bin. Here was this horse of a woman bein’ tried for murder, and her snivellin’ husband settin’ there next to her like he was afraid she’d look at him. Trying women for murder was a new twist for Judge Steele.
