    Smashing Detective Stories:
    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.
