(Galaxy Press writer L. Ron Hubbard‘s stories appeared in seventeen issues of ARGOSY WEEKLY, all published in 1936 and 1937. Although his name was often featured on the cover, his only story to receive ARGOSY cover billing was “Mr. Luck,” published in the October 3, 1936 issue. However, V. E. Pyles’ cover art illustrated Theodore Roscoe’s “King of Beasts.” Also featured in the issue were stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard, making the number a highly collectible issue of the magazine. PulpFest 2016 will be saluting the 120th anniversary of ARGOSY, the first pulp magazine.)
