Forgotten Stories: "Alone" by FREDERICK NEBEL (1926)

Before becoming "the backbone of Black Mask" (as someone once called him), Frederick Nebel was writing mainly adventure and western stories. The first of these appeared in 1925 in Action Stories, Lariat and North-West Stories. By the time this one appeared, in the August 22, 1926 issue of North-West Stories, he had made over twenty appearances in those magazines, and one in Black Mask. The best stuff was still to come, beginning with the first MacBride and Kennedy story in September 1928, but he was already a better than average pulpster, and apparently possessed a very cool hair-shirt.
