Complete Stories

Total Issues: 51+83+13+17+61+9+19=253

This magazine took over from People's, whose last issue was v47 #3, 15-Aug-1924. There was a single issue (v1 #1, 1-Jul-1924) prior to this which may have been an ashcan, but the next issue (v1 #2, 10-Sep-1924) is subtitled on the ToC "With which is combined People's Magazine" and has the People's numbering (v47 #4) on the spine and the new numbering (v1 #2) on the ToC. This was also true of the next issue (v1 #3/v47 #5, 25-Sep-1924), but thereafter only the new numbering is listed.

Concentrate

Total Issues: 1

A publication of 'condensed writings'. Optimistically, a fortnightly frequency was planned, under the sui generis imprint Mwangaza Enterprises (Swahili for 'Dawn'). Only one issue appeared. Some copies sold through shops, some privately, but most had to be distributed free as a ' A new kind of fiction publication' with New Worlds #185 and Ambit magazine.
