    Detective Story Magazine:
    Detective Story Magazine was the first pulp magazine devoted to detective fiction, and was actually a continuation of the dime novel series Nick Carter Stories with its first issue continuing a serial begun in that magazine. It ran for 34 years with half of that being on a weekly basis (although it had dropped to quarterly by the end of its life), notching up an amazing 1057 issues.
