Williams, Lon: Western Action Sampler 2. V1. 20 Apr 2012
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.
CONFIDENTIAL COMMUNICATION—LON WILLIAMS
Wardlow Steele couldn’t believe his eyes and ears—why, here was Axe-Face Demeree on the side of the prosecution, since regular prosecutor Claybrook was indisposed. Now maybe the wily lawyer tricks would be pulled on the side of justice, for a change!
FINGER OF THE BEAST—LON WILLIAMS
If ever an accused man looked innocent, this Meetin’-house Joyner did. And Judge Steele wished that that pesty lawyer, French Demeree, were here to defend him. Because Prosecutor Wade Claybrook seemed to be doing his duty with too danged much of a will.
PARTICEPS CRIMINIS—LON WILLIAMS
The late Frog Croker had had a plan - a way to kill a man and not be blamed for it. But what of his sidekick, who shot in self-defense?
THE DEVIL'S RELAY—LON WILLIAMS
Consarn it all, here was a stickler of a problem. The coroner’s report on Scary Buddicum was suicide; he’d jumped off a cliff. Yet, Judge Steele and Wade Claybrook knew that the man had been murdered—as surely as if he’d been violently attacked.
TO HAVE AND TO HOLD—LON WILLIAMS
Judge Steele was distressed, rather than furious as usual. Below his bench, where murdering catamounts customarily sat, stood a girl, about fourteen years of age. And something told Steele that this was to be the strangest and most difficult case he’d ever presided over.
DARK ALIBI—LON WILLIAMS
The mystery was – why was Val Cadogan so confident He could get away with open murder?
KILL OR BE KILLED—LON WILLIAMS
There were plenty of witnesses to the fact that Pug Wallet had been violently attacked by the late Little Willie Chumby. But had Pug really killed Little Willie in self defense?
ALLER SANS JOUR—LON WILLIAMS
Be-consarned if these lawyers weren’t forever dragging up fancy-sounding Latin terms instead of talking in plain English. This here aller sans jour – it sure sounded sneaky; and the worst was that it looked as if a killer was going to be acquitted, because even Judge Steele realized that the evidence they had on hand against him was shaky, to say the most...
THE SUBSTITUTE—LON WILLIAMS
Judge Steele thought he knew the lawyer breed, but this Newt Salamander was a new one. If he got the accused acquitted, Salamander would receive a half interest in Larkspur Larkin’s mine. If Larkin were convicted and hanged, the lawyer would get the whole mine. And another surprise awaited the salty jurist.
UNWRITTEN LAW—LON WILLIAMS
The question was – would the jury be swayed by sentiment or the needs of justice in this case?
