    Every Week    (about)
    EVERY WEEK was a weekly illustrated story paper with the usual mail-order advertisements, printing syndicated fiction from all around the world. No copies are found in any library holdings. Many of the stories carry no by-lines. I’ve researched some of the stories and determined who the real author by-line is, or, found the earliest known original source when possible. Details supplied by Morgan Wallace.
