Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine (UK)

Total Issues: 12+8=20

The first series is unusual because it is actually "published" in Australia for distribution in the UK. It appears to be identical to the first 12 issues of Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine (Australia) except that the issues are dated four months later (to allow for shipment to the UK, the volume numbering is changed to match the policy of the UK distributor, the covers are overprinted with "British Edition" (and the new date and UK price) and there are minor textual changes to the wording on the Table of Contents.

Mind, Inc.

Total Issues: 126?

This was basically a pseudo-religious magazine which espoused an "inspirational" philosophy not unlike Rosicrucianism. The early issues contain a lot of fiction, used to illustrate the application of this philosophy to daily life. Much of this fiction is occult, although some stories merely illustrate the workings of Fate without overt supernatural intrusions.

The title was modified to Mind Magazine in May 1932. Its later history is not fully known, but it lasted at least to November 1939, the last issue deposited for copyright.
