    Pursued    (about)
    Promising “Exciting Crime Fiction”, Pursued was launched as a companion to Murder when Decker Publications acquired the latter title, with the first issue labelled v1 #4 to match the numbering of Murder. It lasted a mere two issues.

    The Pursuit Detective Story Magazine    (about)
    The Pursuit Detective Story Magazine was launched by Star Publications in September 1953 but was really a throwback to the no-nonsense pulps of the 1940s. After a dozen (mainly) bi-monthly issues, the formula was popular enough for the publisher to launch a second title, Hunted Detective Story Magazine, which was identical to Pursuit and appeared in alternate months. Both magazines ran for a further two years before folding at the end of 1956.
