Among the rare pulps in the Glenn Lord estate auction being held on Friday night, April 6, 2018, at the upcoming Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 6-8, 2018, at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center) are these four.
Nickel Detective (which was a title change from Popular Fiction Magazine, which in turn was a title change from Man Stories), ran for six issues from January to August 1933, before changing title to Strange Detective Stories. Under that latter title, it lasted four issues, from November 1933 to February 1934. The auction will include the August 1933 issue of Nickel Detective, as well as the November 1933, December 1933 and February 1934 issues of Strange Detective Stories. The last two of those feature stories by Conan author Robert E. Howard.
