Off Beat Detective Stories

Total Issues: 35?

Sure-Fire Detective Stories was typical of the action-packed, violent, crime-adventure fiction of the mid-1950s which not only continued the tradition of the pulp magazines, but added to it by inserting a large measure of brutal sex. It ran for 9 issues from January 1957 to July 1958, and was then replaced by/renamed to Off Beat Detective Stories under which title it ran for a further 26 issues (at least). It is mainly remembered today for its graphic cover art, and for the occasional contributions from authors such as Robert Silverberg and Harlan Ellison.
