    Twelve Stories Detective Tales
    Mike Cook, in Mystery, Detective and Espionage Magazines, says this was a pulp magazine that commenced in March 1942, but provides no details of it and no copy has been located. It is believed to be a misreading of the cover of Detective Tales magazine, which frequently had “twelve stories” as a description above the title.


    Two-Books Detective Magazine:
    Initially reprinting “Two $2.00 Mystery Novels” as Two-Books Detective Magazine, the magazine changed slightly with the third issue to Two-Book Detective Magazine with a tagline of “Two Full-Length Mystery Novels”, each of which was original. After a couple of issues this expanded to “Four Full-Length Mystery Novels” which made nonsense of the title, so that was changed a few issues later to New Detective Magazine.





    Two-Book Detective Magazine
    Title changed from Two-Books Detective Magazine.
