    Ace Mystery:   (about)
    The first three issues of Ace Mystery were really weird horror magazines rather than mystery magazines, offering the usual mix of sadistic fantasy, weird menace and sexual apprehension. The last two issues, retitled Detective Romances, were somewhat more sedate.

    Action Detective Magazine   (about)
    Thin digest that ran for at least 46 issues, mainly printing stories by Australian authors, initially with two short stories per issue and later with just a single novelette. Indexing this title is complicated by the fact that multiple issues have been reported with the same issue number but with different contents.
