    Scientific Detective Annual    (about)
    The exact relationship between Scientific Detective Annual and Scientific Detective is currently unclear. Only two (undated) issues of the former have been located, one of which appears to have been published before the first known issue of Scientific Detective, and the second of which reprints some items from early issues of Scientific Detective.

      • EBR Book Co.; 1755 Broadway, New York 19, NY: Scientific Detective Annual




    Scientific Detective Monthly:
    A detective magazine with emphasis on the use of science to solve crimes. About half the stories contain sufficiently exaggerated science to be classed as SF. Title was changed to Amazing Detective Tales after the fifth issue.
