Pep Tec (Stories/Tales)

Total Issues: 6

Listed in Haining's "American Pulp Magazines", which includes covers for the Jun-1937 & Oct-1937 issues, and mentions a Nov-1937 one. The Jun-1937 issue is titled Pep Tec on cover and Table of Contents; the Sep-1937 is titled Pep Tec Stories on the table of contents and Pep "Tec" Tales on the cover; while the Oct-1937 and Nov-1937 issues are titled Pep Tec Tales on the table of contents and Pep "Tec" Tales on the cover.

The issues seen are partial reprints of US saucy pulps such as Vice Squad Detective and Spicy Detective Stories, so it is quite likely that this is actually a UK magazine (as the only known issues are in the UK) and that the listed publisher(s) and price are a smokescreen.
