"Argosy Weekly", 30 November 1935 (magazine, free): Annotated table of contents

Cover of Argosy Weekly magazine, 30 November 1935 issue
While Argosy did publish some science fiction, it wasn't exclusively a science fiction magazine. It published all sorts of action stories.

Link on author fetches more fiction by author. Where I have a separate post on a story, link on story title goes there. For stories I've read, my rating appears in brackets.
