    Scotland Yard    (about)
    Stories in earliest issues are not credited to an author, and most others to a title rather than a name. Publisher bought English pulp stories cheaply and had them rewritten. These were claimed to be true, but are obviously fiction. The title on the cover was occasionally Scotland Yard Detective Stories or Scotland Yard International Detective, but the title on the masthead was consistently just Scotland Yard.

    Screen Crime Stories    (about)
    One-off companion magazine to Screen Cowboy Stories and Screen Romances.

      • Bear Hudson: Screen Crime Stories



    77 Sunset Strip    (about)
    Published shortly after the demise of a very similar magazine, Tightrope, from the same publisher, 77 Sunset Strip also hoped to gain from the publicity of a popular television series of the same name. The pulp size and format was an anachronism and, despite the better-than-average run of contemporary crime-adventure stories, the magazine folded after a single issue.
