Presented by Black Magazine [www.blackMaskMagazine.com] and iPulpFiction [www.iPulpFiction.com]
DARE-DEVIL ACES is one of several aviation pulps published by Popular Publications. Aviation pulps were an outgrowth of adventure magazines and came into their own as World War I ended and daring aviators such as Charles Lindberg and Amelia Earhart were grabbing headlines. Stories centered on WWI battle action, but shifted to modern conflict as WWII began.

by Ray P. Shotwell
What did it mean, that challenge from doom-laden skies—“Keep out of the air today—or you will die to the last man!”
