    Sleuth Mystery Magazine    (about)
    Published “in cooperation with the Mystery Writers of America, Inc.”, Sleuth Mystery Magazine provided light-hearted, crime-adventure vignettes by well-known writers, in much the same style as Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine. It folded after only two issues, possibly because of distribution problems.

    Smashing Detective Stories:    (about)
    One of the last detective pulps to be launched, Smashing Detective Stories featured hard-action stories of mystery and detection. After 27 issues the magazine title changed to Fast Action Detective and Mystery Stories but only 3 more pulp issues were published under this title, followed by 3 digest issues. From July 1956 to November 1956, the title on the cover read Smashing Detective but the title on the masthead was consistently Smashing Detective Stories throughout.
