Since Valentine’s Day is this week, I thought it would be fitting to cover a story from one of the Romance Pulps for this episode. So I headed to the pulp magazines project site and found a story that interested me. Thrill Chaser written by Mary Ann de Forest with interior art by Xena Wright was published in the October 20, 1934 issue of Street & Smith’s Love Story Magazine.
The story is a lot of fun. It seems to be set in the early to mid 1930’s and focuses on Linda Carroll, an East Coast young lady of high society with a wild streak in her. She likes to hang out at speakeasies and also trains in stunt work for motion pictures. Her sister and brother in law attempt to set her up with men, but she has yet to meet her match. She isn’t interested in the tame men on the East Coast. She decides to travel Nevada, to visit her uncle’s ranch to seek some thrills.
