Harper's New Monthly Magazine

A venerable voice of America (in 1950 the government ordered 10,000 copies of its centennial issue for distribution to embassies abroad), its substantial fiction content originally consisted of pirated British material but in the 1870s it began to develop a body of US work and in the 1880s strove for new "realistic" fiction. Authors included Henry James, William Dean Howells, Booth Tarkington, Frank R. Stockton, Herman Melville, Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, Edward Everett Hale, Sarah Orne Jewett, Brander Matthews, Howard Pyle. The fiction was reduced after Alden's editorship, although the magazine still publishes short stories to this day.
