Saga [1934]

Total Issues: 5?

Subtitled "The Adventurers' Magazine", Saga featured "exciting stories of true adventure". Although Lowell Thomas was credited as the editor, this was a purely honorary position as a favour to the publisher, who was a friend of Thomas - the actual editorial work was done by Daniel Edwin Wheeler (who was billed as Associate Editor).

The magazine ran as a pulp for five issues and then was relaunched "as a smooth-paper book", although details of the latter version (if it ever appeared) are currently unclear.
