    Blue Steel Magazine    (about)
    Something of a puzzle since this magazine began with Vol. 1 No. 2 and the second issue is Vol. 1 No. 4. Steeger says it was an experiment to supplant Gang World though that magazine picked up sales and continued regardless. The two issues are the same as the February 1932 and April 1932 issues of Gang World.

    One of the rarest “crime pulps”, Cabaret Stories seems to have been an early attempt at a gangster pulp and is believed to have run for eight issues. The final issue, at least, was subtitled “Gripping Detective Tales, Stirring Adventure Stories and Heart-Throbbing Fiction of Stage and Night Life”.
