Cosmopolitan

Serialized Wells's "The War of the Worlds" (1897) and "The First Men in the Moon" (1900-1901); other authors include Maxim Gorky, W.W. Jacobs, Ambrose Bierce, Arthur B. Reeve. Went through a muck-raking period but switched heavily to fiction in 1912. Eventually was transformed into a sexy upmarket women's magazine under the editorship of Helen Gurley Brown (from 1965).

Initially called The Cosmopolitan, although the definite article seems to have been dropped by 1903 or therabouts. Merged with Hearst's International in Mar- 1925 and technically called Hearst's International combined with Cosmopolitan until Mar-1952, although generally known as Cosmopolitan throughout. Re- emerged under single name in April 1952.
