Ranch Romances

Country: US
Total Issues: 884?

The "last of the pulps," it continued throughout the 1960s and into the early 1970s as a quasi-pulp, although in 1967 the magazine went entirely reprint.

In early 1958 the issue numbering went from v209 #1 to v210 #2. It is unclear if this was a temporary glitch or not; if not the count of issues should be reduced to 880.
