Argosy

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine

Published in the U.S. for 96 years, under a few different names, Argosy was a sometimes weekly, sometimes monthly Men’s literary magazine with topics and purposes that varied over its existence.  Always literary, sometimes totally fiction and sometimes part fiction, part fact and, near the end, soft porn.  I’ve never personally read the magazine, but Bob found the issue with the cover below and  forwarded me the link to the image shown below.  Wikipedia notes that at one point, Argosy was associated with “the men’s adventure pulp genre of “true” stories of conflict with wild animals or wartime combat”.  In the case of the issue below, I think it managed to combine ‘wartime’, ‘conflict’ and ‘wild animals’.
