The Gentleman's Journal, or the Monthly Miscellany

Total Issues: 31

The first British magazine to run recognisable fiction. Mayo calls it "a melange of letters, essays, occasional poems, informative articles, reviews of new books and plays, gossip, news, and enigmatical verse. The tales .. are mostly satirical adventure stories, amorous histories, or tales of intrigue and gallantry. Stories were anonymous and many were probably by Motteux himself.

Gentleman's Magazine

Although the grandfather of all English literary magazines, and still the longest-lived, it only ran fiction between 1868 and 1890 when there was an attempt to transform it into a middlebrow Victorian magazine. Authors include Joseph Hatton, R.E. Francillon, Helen Mathers, Eliza Lynn Linton.
