The Gold Book Magazine

Country: US
Total Issues: 3

Magazine using "stories of the action type, all complete in one issue. It aims to augment the interest of readers by means of prize offers for criticisms of its yarns and the "spotting" of anonymous authors."

Confusingly the first issue is labelled "Vol. 8 No. 7" which seems to be the combination of a typo (it should have been Vol. 3 No. 7) and the continuation of numbering from a non-fiction magazine called Reconstruction which ran for thirty issues from Jan-1919 to Jun-1921.

Issues & Index Sources:  Aug-1921 – Oct-1921: FictionMags Index (sample issue only)

The Golden Book Magazine (UK)

Country: UK
Total Issues: 10

Essentially a British reprint edition of the American Golden Book, which was edited by Lanier. Like the US edition, the UK one also had an Editorial Advisory Board consisting of W. Somerset Maugham, Laurence Binyon, J.B. Priestley and A.E. Coppard, though it is unlikely that they did much, if anything, as the contents were almost all lifted entirely from near concurrent US issues. Reprinted works by Victor Hugo, Anthony Chekhov, James Stephens, O. Henry, Zane Grey, Alexander Dumas, Guy de Maupassant and others. It did not seem to be able to tap into the same market carved out by the British Argosy.
