‘Detective Fiction Weekly’ (Sept. 21, 1940)
This is one of those covers that always makes me smile. It’s so outrageous.
His cover painting illustrates the story “Death Elects a Governor” by pulp stalwart Frank Gruber. I don’t have this pulp and haven’t read the story, so I can’t say how accurately Watson’s cover depicts what’s in the story.
But it sure looks like a surprising campaign speech.
