The American Magazine

Country: US
Total Issues: 338+18+9+603=968

Always open to popular fiction, it adopted an unusual policy in the 1930s: "To encourage new fiction writers and to discourage his staff from being blinded by famous names editor Sumner Blossom ordered mailroom clerks to mask the author's name on all unsolicited pieces of fiction. The staff learned the author's identity only after it had decided to accept or reject a manuscript" (Theodore Peterson, Magazines in the Twentieth Century). Authors included Ellis Parker Butler, Clarence Budington Kelland, Edison Marshall, S.S. Van Dine, Zane Grey, Dashiell Hammett, Rex Stout, Leslie Charteris and Graham Greene ("The Third Man," Mar. 1949).
