    Detective Tales (1930s)   (about)
    The second most successful of Popular Publications’ detective magazines, Detective Tales ran for 18 years, mainly on a monthly basis, producing a total of 202 issues. Most of the issues offered twelve stories for ten cents, which has occasionally led to it being mis-listed as Twelve Stories Detective Tales. Finally, in 1953, it merged with New Detective to form Fifteen Detective Stories.
