Mystery Book Magazine

Country: US
Total Issues: 32+2=34

Mystery Book Magazine started life as a high quality digest magazine that achieved very positive reviews, but disappointing sales. It started as a monthly in 1945, dropped back to a bimonthly in schedule in 1947 and then in August 1947 dropped to a quarterly schedule and changed to a pulp format. After three years, with its fortunes failing, it changed its name dramatically to Giant Detective but folded after a mere two issues under that name.
