Small press magazine devoted to the ghost story genre, mixing fiction and articles. Continued after 2001 as The Ghosts & Scholars M.R.

Ghost Stories

Total Issues: 64

The early issues were published in the format of Macfadden's "true story" magazines. To add versimilitude, the magazine was illustrated with double-exposure photographs and the stories often carried double bylines in the form "by X as told to Y," where X was the narrator of the story and Y was the actual author.
