Gallegher, Hep. Hep Gallegher was created by Glenn Wichman and appeared in sixty-five stories in Western Story Magazine from 1932 to 1942, beginning with “Seasoned Justice” (Western Story Magazine, Dec. 3, 1932).

Hep Gallegher and his partner George are Texan cowpokes, and find themselves involved in a wide range of adventures, from attempting to fight the forces of Pancho Villa to more ordinary gunfights with bushwhackers. Gallegher is a former cavalry officer, is passably clever and “always enters into the spirit of any foolishness that may come up.”
