V.A. Thiessen

Here's a working bibliography of pulp writer V.A. Thiessen's short stories. Possibly not inclusive. The short intro is taken from an e-mail by possibly Todd Mason. 

Here's the western output I have for Thiessen (no doubt there's more, in just Ranch Romances alone).  He seems to have come in about 1954, at the same time that Helen Tono became editor.  I haven't (yet, anyway) seen any of his work in a Fanny Ellsworth issue.  In fact, all the stories I have by
him are 1954 and 1955.

"The Barber of Buffalo Bend," Ranch Romances, September 10, 1954
"Blizzard Bargain," Ranch Romances, December 17, 1954
"The Devil's Eyeglasses," Ranch Romances, December 3, 1954
"Rendezvous at Night," Ranch Romances, October 21, 1955
 "The Rustler's Woman," Ranch Romances, October 22, 1954

Here's V.E. Thiessen's small sf output (courtesy of Miller/Contento CD-ROM):
