Mystery Street

Listed on www.thrillingdetective.com, this was a stillborn magazine. "A fantastic idea by Pulphouse Publishing of Eugene, Oregon, MYSTERY STREET was going to be `The New Wave of Crime Fiction'. We started with a 10,000 word story by Kate Wilhelm, stories from John Lutz, George Alec Effinger, Lee Floren and others. We put together the first issue (a great cover by Peggy Ranson) but Pulphouse went under before we got the magazine into print." O'Neil de Noux was the magazine's editor.

Mystic

Total Issues: 16

Primarily an occult non-fiction magazine which, in its early issues, was about half fiction and half articles. After the fourth issue the fiction was greatly reduced and appeared only sporadically after the seventh issue. Later issues contain articles by Richard S. Shaver that may be of interest to some collectors.

The magazine settled firmly into a non-fiction format about the time that Palmer sold his interest in its chief competitor, Fate, and the title was changed to Search with the October 1956 issue. It was still running at the time of Palmer's death in 1977.

Mystic Magazine

Total Issues: 5

Mystic Magazine dealt with the occult: numerology, tea reading, astrology, crystal gazing, palmistry, fortune telling, etc. The magazine felt as though it was aimed at a female market. There were occasional fiction pieces but the majority of the contents were non-fiction. The magazine lasted four issues and then became True Mystic Crimes for one last issue, in which the contents were similar except for the change in tone away from a female orientation to a more traditional pulp male viewpoint.
