Review of Strange Tales, June 1932
Strange Tales, a rare Clayton pulp, was a rival of Weird Tales. It lasted for only 7 issues, but is much sought after. This review of the June 1932 issue shows why: great stories by Hugh B. Cave, Robert E. Howard and Clark Ashton Smith and most of the best authors from Weird Tales.

A.R. Mitchell Museum of Western Art
I’ve always wanted to visit this museum. A.R. Mitchell was one of the best pulp artists. He was taught by Harvey Dunn, whose impressionistic use of color clearly influenced Mitchell.
Was reminded of the museumby this article:
Within this Trinidad museum named in his honor, you will want to see the pulp art created by A.R. Mitchell. He was one of the foremost artists featured on pulp magazine covers, and his work displayed at this museum spans a period from the 1920s to the 1950s.
Housed in a turn-of-the-century building, the A. R. Mitchell Museum of Western Art also has many great examples of Hispanic and Native American art along with historic photographs of many iconic Colorado locations. If you love architecture, this place is worth a stop just to see the building. It has a tin ceiling, walls painted with period-appropriate paint and a beautiful staircase.
