    The Police Gazette, also known as The National Police Gazette, did not ordinarily publish fiction, but did so under the editorship of Merle Hersey, which lasted about a year, September 1933 to November 1934. The Donenfelds had purchased the paper for a pittance at a bankruptcy sale and published it during this period, after Which they sold it to new owners. The “new” Police Gazette commenced with v141 #1 dated Sept. 5 1933, and it appeared every two weeks, in a tabloid newsprint format. It was 50% sports, and had lots of topless nude photos and pictures of burlesque stars.
