    Midnight:
    Midnight is an extremely scarce, early, tabloid, crime magazine that initially featured a mixture of fiction, true confessions, and exposes, but later became all fiction under the names Midnight Mysteries and Midnight Mystery Stories. Some of the early issues were destroyed by court order as being too risque.
