    American Crime Magazine:   (about)
    Thin digest that ran for at least 36 issues, in two separate series. Despite the title and the boast that it contained “fast-moving drama by popular American authors” it seems to have contained only stories by Australian authors, probably a small number under multiple pseudonyms. There was also an associated series of standalone novelettes published by the same publisher under the same series title of which only two undated examples are known—The Counterfeiters by Rex Young and Murder Madness by Steve Hawk.
