Gridiron Classics
 
These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook. 
 
Sports thrills, ripped from the burning pages of one of the all-time great sports magazines of the 1930s, Sports Novels! Magazines containing sports fiction were one of the staples of the pulp magazines, becoming popular in the early 1920s and by the mid-1930s there were over two dozen titles on the newsstands. In early 1937, Popular Publications decided to enter the lucrative field of the sports fiction magazines. The April-May 1937 issue of Sports Novels hit the newsstands in late March, featuring an eye-catching baseball cover. For the next fifteen years, each issue featured stories of football, boxing, baseball, hockey, track, basketball, tennis and hockey. Nearly every sport imaginable was represented in the long-running magazine. It continued publishing for a total of eighty-five issues until the April 1952 issue, when pulp magazines were in their waning days. Vintage Sports Novels are now being reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
 
Table of Contents:
 
Introduction
 
Cleats And Cinders — Aug-Sept 1937 issue of Sports Novels Magazine
by Walter J. Higgins
Barney Hadley was a tough guy, as hard as the coal he had mined in the hills. He was not the sort of kid to send to Hargrave, the snootiest school in the East. They couldn’t do it without breaking his heart, or having him break their heads!
 
Halfway Back — February 1947 issue of Sports Novels Magazine
by William R. Cox
Eleven gents dropped a ball game, back in the piping days of peace — ten and a half came back — who’d forgotten how to lose!
 
Goal To Go! — February 1947 issue of Sports Novels Magazine
by Roy C. Rainey
Corwin’s cherished glory was buried in a campus grave too big for a cash and carry guy to fill!
 
Cleats Of The Mighty — January 1950 issue of Sports Novels Magazine
by Daniel Winters
They met where the yards are crossed with thunder: the mighty eleven that nobody would forget — and the broken team that put itself together — for a touchdown to remember!
 
Glory Runner — January 1950 issue of Sports Novels Magazine
by Larry Holden
They were eleven football outcasts with all their tomorrows behind them — but with the gridiron’s greatest upset waiting beyond the final yard!
