Rex Stout's Mystery Monthly

Country: US
Total Issues: 9

Launched to cash in on the success of the paperback editions of three Nero Wolfe novels, Rex Stout's Mystery Monthly (initially under slightly different titles) was a digest-sized mystery magazine combining classic reprints and some original material. Stout was listed as editor-in-chief, and contributed an introduction to each issue, but otherwise had little involvement.

Reynolds's Miscellany of Romance, General Literature, Science, and Art

Country: UK
Total Issues: 86?+1087=1173?

Reynolds's Miscellany was one of the best, and one of the most historically important, of the "penny dreadful" publications. It was almost the first of the major illustrated fiction weeklies, preceded only by The London Journal. Reynolds edited the Journal from 1845 to 1846, but quarreled with the proprietor George Stiff and quit to start the Miscellany soon after, as competition.

Reynolds's Miscellany published two distinct series. The first series is quite rare. At the same time, John Dicks, publisher of The London Journal, started a new short-lived periodical called The Weekly Magazine of Fiction. This ended on July 1, 1848 and was merged with Reynolds's Miscellany, which began a new series to mark the event.

Reynolds ceased contributing serial novels in 1859 and thereafter the quality of the magazine declined.
