Western Story Magazine

Total Issues: 591+356+8+1282+11=2248

Started as a dime-novel library called The Buffalo Bill Stories which then changed into New Buffalo Bill Weekly, both featuring the adventures of the eponymous hero. The title changed in 1919 to Western Story Magazine but the first 8 issues contined to be a dime-novel series featuring Buffalo Bill before changing to a pulp magazine on 5-Sep-1919 (v8#1) although the first two pulp issues, at least, continued to have Buffalo Bill stories.

Note that in 1943 the frequency of the magazine changed: up to the February 13th 1943 issue Western Story Magazine was a weekly, then there was six-week gap until 20th March, before then settling down to a fortnightly publication schedule. Note also that there were NO issues in February 1920.
