Gangster Stories

Total Issues: 31+13=44

Initially one of Hersey's more successful pulps, Gangster Stories was sold in 1932, along with all his magazine assets. The new owners boastfully renamed the magazine Greater Gangster Stories but the readers were less impressed and the magazine folded after only 13 issues.
