    The Strand Magazine    (about)
    The Strand Magazine was the leading UK popular fiction magazine, and a major trendsetter, publishing most of the famous writers of its day, in particular A. Conan Doyle (the “Sherlock Holmes” short stories, which set the fashion for series stories, especially those featuring a hero-and-sidekick), Grant Allen, E. W. Hornung, W. W. Jacobs, H. G. Wells, E. Nesbit, Rudyard Kipling, A. E. W. Mason, Anthony Hope, O. Henry, P. G. Wodehouse. It was edited by Herbert Greenhough Smith (1891-1930) and Reeves Shaw (1930-Sep. 1941) although the only editor listed from the beginning until his death in June 1910 was George Newnes.

    Towards the end of it’s run (1946 on) the precise title drifted somewhat, appearing variously as Strand, The Strand or Strand Magazine but there was no consistency to the changes, that often varied between cover, spine, running heads and Table of Contents so it has been decided to leave the title as The Strand Magazine throughout its run.
