Legion Pulp: Legionnaire Pro Tem

Legionnaire Pro Tem PictureThis month’s pulp story is another work by Georges Surdez.  It was featured in Blue Book Magazine of May, 1939.  Blue Book in my opinion was the best general fiction pulp magazines there was.  It had less serials than Argosy and far more illustrations than either Adventure, Short Stories or Argosy combined.  The story writing was top notch too as can be seen in this tale.

Richard Lacy is an American movie actor whose ill calculated trip to Morocco and mix up with a bunch of real live Foreign Legionnaires almost ends his movie making career for good.  It’s a classic formula Foreign Legion tale that involves an unlikely, or in some cases clueless, new recruit (which could have been taken right out of the Foreign Legion story plot book of J. D. Newsom).
