Medical Horrors

Total Issues: 1

Combination fiction and non-fiction. While the name Medical Horrors might lead one to believe that this magazine dealt with either horror or weird menace stories, its contents are much more mundane. There is an unattributed "article" about psychics ("I Am Thy Father's Spirit") and another about "a fiend incarnate - monster, madman, monstrosity" ("Dr. A. W. Waite: Satan's Personal Representative" by Mary Ellis). None the less the thrust of this publication is best captured by the sub-title of "Chloroformed" by Gordon Reynolds.

Menace

Total Issues: 2

Menace, like Murder, was a short-lived attempt to please the reading public with contemporary crime-adventure stories that were but one step removed from the pulp magazines. Although not lacking better-known writers, the competition was too fierce and the magazine folded after only two issues.
