  3. I'm always on the lookout for Gault sports fiction particularly...if I see some more beyond those I've reviewed on my blog a while back, I'll seek to mention them. (I collect the original pulps as well, but I've been slacking off of late for several reasons...and one does have to dig a Little deeper for sports pulps.)
