Private Detective (Stories)

Total Issues: 134

Private Detective Stories appeared in mid-1937, about three years after the first of the spicy magazine lines - Spicy Detective - and came from the same publisher - Trojan Publishing. The magazines were much the same - it has been said that "Private Detective Stories was Spicy Detective with less decorative covers and some, but not much, of the psychopathology left out". It ran for 134 issues over a period of 13 years, in the latter months (from Sep-1949) adding two comic strips to the mix and dropping the word "Stories" from the title.

Private Eye [1953]

Total Issues: 2

Private Eye featured stories of hoodlums and small-time crooks, private investigators and the police, and some stories with surprie endings. Despite containing a good selection of contemporary crime-adventure and mystery stories by well-known authors, the magazine folded after only two issues, publishing material that was too little different from so many others.
