Blue Steel Magazine

Total Issues: 2

Something of a puzzle since this magazine began with Vol.1 No.2 and the second issue is Vol.1 No.4. Steeger says it was an experiment to supplant Gang World though that magazine picked up sales and continued regardless. Authors include Erle Stanley Gardner, Robert Sidney Bowen, T.T. Flynn, Frederick C. Painton. The two issues are the same as the Feb-1932 and Apr-1932 issues of Gang World.
