I've been meaning to look for some Jimgrim books. Thanks for reminding me!
(The only exposure I have to Mundy's work is the film version of "King of the Khyber Rifles".)

Another pulp authour I wanted to mention was Edgar Wallace, who wrote the early draught of "King Kong" (The Beast).
I've never read his stuff but he was a popular pulp novelist of the '20s and has tons of titles to his name.

There's Louis L'Amour, too.
