    Clues:   (about)
    Clues was always a popular choice among readers, despite never quite reaching the top rank of detective pulps. Starting in 1926 it ran for a very creditable 17 years (and 218 issues) before falling foul of the wartime paper shortages like so many other pulps. Listing supplied by Richard Bleiler unless otherwise noted.


    • Publishers:

      • Clayton Magazines, Inc.; 155 East 44th Street, New York, NY: Clues, May 1931 – Jun 1932.
    • Editors:

    Clues [v1 #1, September 1926] (pulp) []
    This issue was not published. Harold Hersey was editor at commencement, and many of the magazines with which he was associated began with Volume 1 #2. The magazine did not apply for second class mailing until August 31, 1926 and magazines were dated one or two months prior to actual release. No serials commenced until Volume 1 #2, the second issue. Street & Smith Archives, Syracuse University, has no record of any Volume 1 #1. It has also been suggested that the numbering might have continued from the one-shot Clayton magazine Cowboy Life published in January 1926.
