Crime Stories Monthly

Apparently a magazine of this title was planned c. 1935 but was never published. All that survives is a cover of an ashcan edition produced for trademark purposes.

Crime Story Magazine

Little is known about this magazine. A series of at least 8 issues labelled "Volume 6" was published by Blue Diamond with dates from Jun-1952 to Feb-1954. Other issues have been seen with no dates and just issue numbers, published by Blue Diamond or Page Publications, which appear to duplicate the contents of the other series and are assumed to be later reprints.

In addition, while it is likely that most of the stories are reprints, only a small number have been traced and it is possible the titles have been changed for many of the others.
