About this Item

"First Publication Anywhere." 12 oversize newsprint pages. Color illustration by Paul Soik on front page. Back page has the "Vignettes of Life" feature: a series of comic panels by Harry Weinert, collectively titled "Snacks." ~In nearly fine condition with a single short closed tear at top edge. ~~ The Star Weekly was a weekend supplement to the Toronto Star newspaper, and it was also sold as a stand-alone publication in other cities in Canada. It consisted of four parts: the main section, a magazine section, a comic section, and the novel section. Offered here is the novel section of the June 18, 1960 issue, which contains the first published appearance of O'Rourke's novel "The Bride Stealer." Caption on the front page: "The story of Talache Coyote whose return sparked an old legend into new life!" Coyote was a vigilante who was passionate about protecting brides from unhappy marriages. In this story he suddenly returns after a long absence in order to perform another deed, this time for the daughter of a wealthy but ruthless horse breeder. O'Rourke was a prolific author of westerns, mysteries and some sports fiction, and several of his novels were made into film. A nice piece of collectible ephemera, quite scarce in this form. Size: 11.25 " x 14". Bookseller Inventory # 001515
