Pete Rice Magazine
A very scarce and desirable western title.
Pete Rice Magazine was one of several single character hero pulp titles published by Street & Smith. With a cover date of November 1933 for the first issue, he appeared just eight months after Doc Savage appeared and nine months after Nick Carter. The title changed to Pete Rice Western Adventures with the September 1935 issue and continued as such until the end of the run. Austin Gridley was the Street & Smith house author that the Pete Rice stories appeared under, however most were written by a pulp author named of Ben Conlon.
In “Cheap Thrills”, Ron Goulart describes the Pete Rice realm as “built around a cowboy with a coterie of distinctive sidekicks.” In his book “The Pulp Western,” John Dinan considered Pete Rice more a modern detective than your typical pulp fiction cowboy, “as the crimes and circumstances surrounding them were modern and not particularly western (e.g., counterfeiting).” Nick Carr cites Link Huller as referencing telephones and cars popping up in the stories occasionally. Pete seemed to be stuck somewhere between the old west and the early 20th century.
The first 26 issues had nice striking cover art by Walter Baumhofer. Starting with the January 1936 issue, R.G. Harris took over and continued until the end of the run with the June 1936 issue. Pete Rice has traditionally been a very difficult run to put together and to obtain all 32 issues can be quite a daunting task. Average condition is about VG/FN with many high grade.
