Hutchinson's Story Magazine
Total Issues: 125
Essentially this was always a flamboyant pulp that tried to masquerade
as a slick for some years but was always second-rate. It published a
wide range of fiction, though by the mid/late 1920s placed the emphasis
on romance, mystery and intrigue.

Rohmer. Other authors include Achmed Abdullah, Stacey Aumonier, H.
Mortimer Batten, Marjorie Bowen, Joseph Conrad ("Suspense!" Feb-Aug
1925), Richmal Crompton, Gilbert Frankau, H. Rider Haggard (serialized

Monster" 1924), Cosmo Hamilton, Robert Hichens, Herbert Jenkins, Marie

then back to Hutchinson's Story-Magazine in Jun-1929; but the
title remained as Hutchinson's Story Magazine.
