Court Magazine and Monthly Critic and Lady's Magazine and Museum of Belles Lettres

Really a continuation of La Belle Assemblee, started in 1806 but which underwent several transformations until revamped under this unwieldy title when it merged with The Lady's Magazine. It featured an incredible miscellany of material with a growing emphasis on fiction, often running long, increasingly bizarre stories. Few authors credited, and only story that has been reprinted since is "Hugues the Wer-Wolf" (Sep-1838) by Sutherland Menzies.

Coven 13

Total Issues: 4+6=10

Although Witchcraft & Sorcery is technically a continuation of Coven 13 (Crawford bought the subscription list) the later incarnation was a totally different magazine in every way other than also concentrating on weird fiction. Only the first two issues of the second series had newsstand distribution, after which it appeared sporadically. This was the only one of Crawford's magazines to fold without an uncompleted serial.
