    Menace    (about)
    Menace, like Murder, was a short-lived attempt to please the reading public with contemporary crime-adventure stories that were but one step removed from the pulp magazines. Although not lacking better-known writers, the competition was too fierce and the magazine folded after only two issues.

    • Publishers:
      • St. John Publishing Corporation; 545 Fifth Avenue, New York 17, NY: Menace

    • Editors:




    Mercury Mystery Book-Magazine:
    Mercury Mystery Book-Magazine was the continuation of a long-running series of full-length (and condensed) mystery novels published in a digest-sized, paperback format, under the title of Mercury Mystery since March 1940. It ran for 23 issues (starting with #210) before merging with Bestseller Mystery Magazine.
