Western Action (Novels Magazine)

The numbering of this magazine is extremely odd as it ran as Western Action Novels Magazine from v2 #1, March 1936 to early 1938 when it changed to Western Action (as which it ran until 1960). In November, 1938, however it also restarted as v1 #1 of Western Action Novels Magazine (as which it ran for only five issues, before changing to Greater Western Action Novels for a further five issues).

British, and Canadian, reprint editions exist for the magazine.
