    Variety Detective Magazine:
    Promising “12 stories for 10¢”, Variety Detective Magazine only lasted for 8 issues before changing to Lone Wolf Detective Magazine under which it ran for a further 8 years until wartime shortages brought it to an end. The early issues, at least, featured a number of unacknowledged reprints from Detective-Dragnet Magazine under different author names and titles and there are no doubt many more that have not yet been identified.
