    The Ghost, Super-Detective:    (about)
    Featuring George Chance, a stage magician turned hero, The Ghost, Super-Detective was a low-budget effort from the start, featuring only the lead novel and a couple of short stories. After three issues it had a single issue as simply The Ghost Detective, followed by another three as The Green Ghost Detective, before succumbing to the World War II paper shortage.

    Ghost Stories    (about)
    The early issues were published in the format of Macfadden’s “true story” magazines. To add versimilitude, the magazine was illustrated with double-exposure photographs and the stories often carried double bylines in the form “by X as told to Y”, implying that the the story had been written by Y based on an account by X. Note that a number of reprints from Ghost Stories list only the X by-line.
