    Gangland-Racketeer Stories
    Mike Cook, in Mystery, Detective and Espionage Magazines, lists this as a Blue Band magazine in the 1930s, but this is probably a confusion for the merger of Gangland Stories and Racketeer Stories.


    Gangland Stories:   (about)
    Racketeer Stories and Gangland Stories were two of Harold Hersey’s less successful gangster pulp magazines, attempting to cash in on the popularity of Gangster Stories. The former lasted for only 18 issues and the latter for a mere 14 issues before the two magazines were merged to form Racketeer and Gangland Stories, which lasted a mere three issues. Commenced with Volume 1 #2, a practice not unusual with Harold Hersey magazines.
