    Mind, Inc.:    (about)
    This was basically a pseudo-religious magazine which espoused an “inspirational” philosophy not unlike Rosicrucianism. The early issues contain a lot of fiction, used to illustrate the application of this philosophy to daily life. Much of this fiction is occult, although some stories merely illustrate the workings of Fate without overt supernatural intrusions. Only the fiction is listed here, from the first issue through November 1931, after which the fiction became sporadic. The title was modified to Mind Magazine in May 1932. Its later history is not fully known, but it lasted at least to November 1939, the last issue deposited for copyright.
