The Detective Magazine

Total Issues: 65

Fortnightly British pulp magazine which ran between 1922 & 1925. Each issue -- superbly illustrated by a variety of artists, most of them Amalgamated Press regulars -- is a mixture of fiction and non-fiction; the early issues contained the serialisation of "Flat 2" by Edgar Wallace and offered a 500 prize to the reader who could come up with the best solution to the mystery; Wallace's own solution was published a few months after the third episode appeared.

George Dilnot, the editor, was a well-known crime journalist of the time, editing a number of volumes of books about famous trials; he was also a former editor of Answers, and wrote "The Romance of the Amalgamated Press"; clearly a favoured son of the company. Dilnot used his contacts at Scotland Yard and seems to have hired every ex-Chief Det.-Insp. that ever worked there to write articles. In the fiction department, he often relied on American reprints, but there's some very interesting British authors tucked away in these old pages too.

Detective Novel Classics

It has been suggested that a magazine of this title is rumored to have been published by Hillman, but this was actually the title of a series of books published by Hillman, not a magazine.

Detective Novels Magazine

Total Issues: 67

For most of its life Detective Novels Magazine offered two short novels, a small selection of short stories and a few features as fillers, mainly on a bimonthly schedule, and is best known for the two series of stories featuring Jerry Wade (the Candid Camera Kid) and The Crimson Mask. In 1944 the format changed to featuring just a single "novel" and a handful of short stories and the title was changed accordingly to Detective Novel Magazine.
