    Don Pendleton’s The Executioner Mystery Magazine:
    Despite the title, the magazine had no connection to the character created and made popular by Don Pendleton in his series of paperback books on “The Executioner” and featured all new stories in a more-or-less standard crime adventure fare. The magazine commenced publication with v1 #4, possibly due to the first issue being published in the fourth month of the year. There were no issues labelled v1 #1, v1 #2 or v1 #3.
