Scotland Yard

Total Issues: 14

Stories printed either anonymously or under by-lines like 'Immigration Man' or 'Crack Reporter'. Stories purported to be true but clearly not. Authors include Lester Dent. Some may have been reprinted from UK mags. The title on the cover was occasionally Scotland Yard Detective Stories or Scotland Yard International Detective, but the title on the masthead was consistently just Scotland Yard.
