    Double-Action Detective Stories:
    Double Action Detective Stories was a pulp magazine in every way but size, at a time when the competition had moved on to more sophisticated material. Initially published only twice a year (although the issues weren’t dated), it shifted to a quarterly schedule after the fifth issue, and then to a bimonthly schedule the following year, changing its name at much the same time to Double Action Detective and Mystery Stories.
