    All Mystery   (about)
    Dell’s first attempt to issue a mystery digest magazine. A good line-up of authors, but all with reprinted stories.

    • Publishers:
      • Dell Publishing Co., Inc.; 261 Fifth Avenue, New York 16, NY: All Mystery.
















    All Sports Magazine (1936)   (about)
    Title given on the cover as The Frank G. Menke All Sports Magazine. Subtitled “Facts-Fancies-Figures-Fiction Running the Gamut of Sportdom”. Although the word “Fiction” appears on the covers, this barely qualifies as a fictionmag, as it is almost all non-fiction. The vast majority of the contents are sports coverage of the era—news, anecdotes, trivia, statistics, etc. covering virtually all sports played in the US.
