John Bull [1906]

Country: UK
Total Issues: 2792

Became a slick on American lines after World War II; by the time of its demise it had absorbed such similar magazines as The Passing Show, News Review, The Illustrated (1958) and Everybody's Weekly (1959); it published little fiction until after WW2 when it started to feature Agatha Christie, Nicholas Monsarrat, N.J. Crisp, Gerald Kersh, J.B. Priestley.

Note that it was called "John Bull Everybody's Weekly" for a while in 1959 at least after the merger with Everybody's Weekly.

Available in bound editions at Colindale.

Continued as Today which was itself incorporated into Weekend.

John Creasey Mystery Magazine

Country: UK
Total Issues: 90

The (John) Creasey Mystery Magazine was a high-quality mystery and detective digest that ran for 90 issues between 1956 and 1965, mainly on a monthly basis. It was initially titled The Creasey Mystery Magazine and mainly featured reprint stories selected by Creasey, but was renamed to John Creasey Mystery Magazine when Creasey took over publication in October 1957, and thereafter featured a sprinkling of new stories both by old favourites and new authors.
