    Mystery League    (about)
    Created by “Ellery Queen” (Frederic Dannay and Manfred B. Lee) just three years after their first successful book, Mystery League was an attempt to produce a magazine that would publish only quality fiction. While the quality was indeed high, so was the price and with the state of the economy at the time it was doomed from the start and folded after only four issues. A fifth issue was assembled, but not printed.

    Mystery Magazine:
    Mystery Magazine was one of the earliest crime pulps, first appearing in November 1917, a mere two years after Street & Smith’s Detective Story Magazine. It ran for seven years on a twice-monthly schedule, featuring undistinguished stories by undistinguished authors. It then vanished for a year, returning in 1926 for a further 12 twice-monthly issues. There was then a further hiatus before it restarted, under a new publisher, on a monthly schedule, publishing a much wider range of detective and mystery-suspense stories (including some science fiction). After only ten issues, it changed its name to Mystery Stories, but only lasted a further two years before folding. The title was then acquired by Street & Smith and merged into Best Detective Magazine.
