    Murder Mysteries:    (about)
    A very uncommon title, not to be confused with the earlier Hersey magazine called Murder Mysteries or the later Blue Ribbon magazine called Detective and Murder Mysteries. Very little is known about the magazine, and it is not even clear how many issues there were. The numbering of the October 1936 issue as v1 #9 suggests two further issues between May 1935 and October 1936, but none have ever been located.
