Action Stories eBook
December 1940
Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
Action Stories was one of many pulp magazines published by Fiction House, also known for their air pulps (Air Stories, Wings, Aces, George Bruce's Air Novels), western pulps (Lariat Stories, Frontier Stories, Civil War Stories), sports pulps (Fight Stories, Baseball Stories, Football Action), detective pulps (Detective Classics, Detective Book Magazine, Bull's-Eye Detective), science fiction pulps (Planet Stories) and general adventure pulps (True Adventures, Jungle Stories, Sheena).  Action Stories published its first issue in September 1921. During its 30-year run, it contained a mixture of subjects, including sports fiction, war stories, adventures in exotic locations, a few science fiction tales, and a good smattering of western adventures.  If a story couldn't find a place in any of the other Fiction House pulps, there was always room for it in Action Stories. Not to say these were second-tier stories, each was top-notch quality, which explains why the magazine survived for an amazing 224 issues. The final issue was published in the fall of 1950. Action Stories now returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Reviewer: Will Robertson from Roswell, GA United States  
A great pulp! I bought this in particular for the Coburn, Wetjen, & Olmsted stories, which can be hard to find (esp. Wetjen & Olmsted).
