DUSTY AYRES AND HIS BATTLE BIRDS


DUSTY AYRES AND HIS BATTLE BIRDS
   US PULP MAGAZINE. 12 issues, July 1934-July 1935; published by Popular Publications; ed Rogers Terrill. Each issue contained a novel by Robert Sidney BOWEN Jr in which Dusty and his sidekicks fought off the menace of the Black Invaders, led by an Asian warlord bent on world domination. The magazine, genuine NEAR FUTURE sf, was a revival of a more conventional aviation pulp, Battle Birds, in an attempt to pull in the readership of the previous title for what was in fact a brand new magazine with a new hero and a new, futuristic storyline. It continued the numeration of Battle Birds, beginning with vol 5 \#4 and ending with vol 8 \#3. Five of the stories were reprinted as paperbacks in 1966 (for details BOWEN).
