Super-Detective (Stories)

Country: US
Total Issues: 15+65=80

Super-Detective Stories was launched in the mid-1930s but, despite rather lurid covers, it ran fairly standard crime/detective fare and lasted for only 15 issues. It was successfully revived in 1940 as a character pulp called Super-Detective, with each issue featuring a novel about Jim Anthony, scientist, businessman and adventurer. Under this title it ran for a further 65 issues, although the Jim Anthony stories were dropped in late 1943.

Supernatural Stories

Country: UK
Total Issues: 108

This series started out as anthologies in an ambiguously magazine-like format. After a hiatus, it was revived as one of the Badger Books paperback lines. Novels first appeared with #29; they alternated with the anthologies after #42. Not a true magazine, in that most volumes of stories were contracted to single authors, who supplied the entire contents, though R.L. Fanthorpe is known to have subcontracted a few stories to other writers. In the first 8 volumes the interior pages are numbered 5 to 132.

Issues 13,15,17,19 also entitled Out of This World.
