The Pursuit Detective Story Magazine

Country: US
Total Issues: 18

The Pursuit Detective Story Magazine was launched by Star Publications in September 1953 but was really a throwback to the no-nonsense pulps of the 1940s. After a dozen (mainly) bimonthly issues, the formula was popular enough for the publisher to launch a second title, Hunted Detective Story Magazine, which was identical to Pursuit and appeared in alternate months. Both magazines ran for a further two years before folding at the end of 1956.
