    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.

    Alfred Hitchcock’s Anthology   (about)
    Initially an annual anthology of stories from Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock’s Anthology soon moved to a twice yearly schedule. Its digest format, and sequential numbering, initially gave it the appearance of a magazine, although from late 1982 each issue was given a specific name,

    • Publishers:
      • Davis Publications, Inc.; New York: Alfred Hitchcock’s Anthology.
    • Editors:
      • Eleanor Sullivan - Editor: Alfred Hitchcock’s Anthology, 1977 – Mar 1982.
