    New Detective Magazine:
    New Detective Magazine started in 1941 promising “the NEWest in Crime Fiction”, and carried the standard fare of crime stories, with emphasis on police detectives, by some of the most popular authors. It ran for 73 issues and was then, in August 1953, merged with Detective Tales to form Fifteen Detective Stories. This was originally launched as a new magazine with the August 1953 issue, but with its second issue picked up the volume numbering of New Detective Magazine. However, it only ran under the new title for 12 issues before folding in June 1955. It was then relaunched in January 1956 as a men’s magazine called True Adventures, but is believed to have published no fiction under that title, and those issues are not indexed here.
