    Startling Mystery Magazine   (about)
    An attempt to cash in on the popularity of the “shudder pulps”, Startling Mystery Magazine used reprint covers and paid authors only half the then-going rate. Perhaps as a result it folded after only two issues, though a third issue was planned.

      • Fictioneers, Inc.; 2256 Grove Street, Chicago, IL: Startling Mystery Magazine.

    Startling Mystery Stories   (about)
    Startling Mystery Stories specialised in stories where either the detective or villain had supernatural powers or their scientific equivalent. Despite a steadily growing circulation during its 18 issues it was killed in 1971 by increasing costs and distribution problems.
