Hubbard before Sci-Fi, horse operas

Hubbard’s first published stories, starting in the early 1930’s, were often westerns.  These were low-brow efforts for the average Joe.  Horse operas, complained one pulp writer of the time, were often written by bell hops.  The pay for such literary gems was low.  Hubbard had to crank stories out in volume to make anything, today most people would find these stories a joke.
