Pals (Australia)

"Inspired by the longrunning British juvenile magazine CHUMS, PALS was a fiction paper for boys published in Melbourne commencing as a fortnightly on 28-Aug-1920, went weekly after the first year and ran to 2-Apr-1927. It was also issued in annual volumes, but it should be noted that these did not reprint the complete year, only about 34 issues from August to April with minor re-editing." (Graham Stone)

It was "the official organ of the Australian Boy Scout Scouts' Association (Victorian Section)".

The first series was a slight ephemeral magazine with a bohemian outlook that never got off the ground. It was relaunched as Pan: A Journal for Saints and Cynics which published some fiction, but was generally too aimless. From Jul-1921 it became an all-fiction pulp magazine companion to 20-Story Magazine and featured a lot of mystery and weird fiction as well as adventure stories. Authors include E.C. Vivian, Edgar Wallace, Douglas Newton, Elliott O'Donnell, Guy Dent, Michael Arlen and UK publication of stories by H. Bedford-Jones, George Allan England, Stephen Vincent Benet, Edwin Baird. First English publication of Maurice Level's "Night and Silence" (Jan-1922) later in Weird Tales.
