Pulp #5 -- September 26, 2009

When I was a kid, Gene Nelson on KSFO played old radio shows at night. He often played episodes of The Shadow. At some point, I found a copy of Jim Harmon's The Great Radio Heroes in the library and read that the Shadow was a very different character in the pulp magazines. That character sounded more interesting. The whole "clouds men's minds" didn't make a lot of sense, but wearing dark clothes and hiding in the shadows sounded cool. Later still, I got to read reprints and found that they were pretty cool.
Here is the cover from the July, 1932 edition. The image is from a wonderful site called Cover Browser:
Today we went to the Stanford Shopping Center. After mass we had dinner at Guerrero's.
