    Pocket Detective Magazine (1930s)    (about)
    An early experiment with a “pocket-sized” magazine to persuade readers to part with their cash in the hard days after the depression, Pocket Detective featured many of the same authors as the other Street & Smith detective pulps. Bad sales did not result in the anticipated success and it folded after 11 issues.
