by H. Bedford-Jones
One of the best series ever published in the pulps was written by the prolific H. Bedford-Jones, author of hundreds of stories totaling an estimated 25 millions words.
Thomas Jasper “Pinky” Jenkins, a drunk and corrupt sheriff accompanied by his deputy Parker, shot his way through nearly a score of comedy/Western stories from the 1920s. Volume 1 includes four recently-discovered Jenkins stories by Bedford-Jones which were published under a pseudonym.
The Pinky Jenkins series may be the only series of its kind written by The King of the Pulps, and considered one of his best by Bedford-Jones aficionados.
The Life of Pinky Jenkins, Volume 1 (The H. Bedford-Jones Library) contains the following stories:
- “When Fate Wore Chaps”
- “A Stranger and Took In”
- “Where the Railroad Ended”
- “Fast Work in High Valley”
- “A New Deal in Double Ace”
