    Hutchinson’s Story Magazine

              Hutchinson’s Story Magazine—UK; Jul. 1919-Dec. 1929 (125 issues); retitled Hutchinson’s Magazine May 1921, reverted to Hutchinson’s Story-Magazine, Jul. 1929; Hutchinson, London; monthly; standard format, initial price 9d (soon rising to 1/-); first five issues on pulp paper, thereafter slick paper until its last six issues (Jul.-Dec. 1929); switched to large-format slick (Aug. 1924-Jun. 1929); editor E. Hornibrook (last few issues); although not strictly a pulp for much of its existence, it began and ended as one, and it is convenient to regard it as a pulp throughout since it continued to publish much the same sort of stories; essentially this was always a flamboyant pulp, although it masqueraded as a big slick for some years; contained a wide range of fiction, with an emphasis on romance, mystery and intrigue; published “Spook Stories” by E. F. Benson and “Crook Stories” by Sax Rohmer; other authors included Achmed Abdullah, A. E. W. Mason, Stacey Aumonier, H.
