A painstaking analysis of who wrote each item in the magazine based on the record of payments to contributors in the office book kept by subeditor William Henry Wills
Series of booklets, each containing an author/title index to the specified magazines.
This is an eccentric volume, described by the author as a "pastime for my old age", containing selective information on "weird and fantastic" fiction in a variety of sources ranging from Romance Magazine to Weird Tales. While only partial contents are listed for a subset of the issues of each magazine, and there is no author or title index, the volume is still valuable as being, with the equally eccentric Index to Fantasy & Science Fiction in Munsey Publications, the only reference source for some older non-genre magazines.
To further complicate matters, the volume has grown organically over the years since the first version appeared in 1953, so no two copies will necessarily contain the same contents. Information on this site has been taken from the 1995 edition.
Author index to about 100 "little magazines" covering the period specified. Each item is listed only by title with no attempt at classification.
Index by issue and by author to all issues of the magazine in the 20th century, including some information on pseudonyms but making no differentiation between fiction and non-fiction.
Comprehensive index to all SF/fantasy magazines published in the UK from 1934 to 1953, including both original British magazines and British editions of American magazines (which frequently differed significantly from their American originals, particularly during and after World War II). Although the former have been covered in other indexes, this is the only printed index to cover the latter. While the majority of the issues have now been indexed as part of the FictionMags Index this volume contains details of book reviews that are generally excluded from other indexes.
Author index to about 20-25 "little magazines" covering the period specified. Each item is listed by title with a rough attempt at classification.
This slim (uncredited) volume was an attempt to index all fantasy and SF stories in magazines such as Cavalier and Argosy. As such, it contains only a single index by author of the stories in question. While only partial contents are listed for a subset of the issues of each magazine the volume is still valuable as being, with the equally eccentric An Index on the Weird & Fantastica in Magazines, the only reference source for some older non-genre magazines.
Index by issue and by author to the fiction in the 11 issues of Wayside Tales. Published as part of the 53rd mailing of PEAPS (The Pulp-Era Amateur Press Society).
Index by issue and by author to the fiction in 22 of the issues of Football Action and the issues of Football Stories. Published as part of Mailing #58 (January 2002) of PEAPS (The Pulp-Era Amateur Press Society).
An eccentric volume that indexes a wide range of Victorian magazines, but does so by "subject". Although there is an index by author, there is no indication of whether items are fiction or non-fiction, and the information listed tends to be the subject rather than the title. Better than nothing for magazines not indexed elsewhere, but leaves much to be desired.

This was announced as Volume 1 in the "Fiction in the Pulp Magazines" series, but the untimely death of Mike Cook, and the spiralling costs of producing such indexes, meant that no further volumes ever appeared, although the CD-based Science Fiction, Fantasy, & Weird Fiction Magazine Index was based in part on the research that Steve Miller did for a later volume in the series.
An updated and expanded version of this index formed part of the Crime, Mystery and Gangster Fiction Magazine Index.

Author index to Playboy magazine for its first 40 years, intermixing fiction by authors such as Fred Pohl with features such as "Playboy's Pro Football Review", and is valuable, at least, as the only index to the former category. Note that an earlier, 1992, version bore the title "Destiny Reference Guide: Volume I: The Magazine 12/53 thru 6/92".
The first four volumes (all published) in a massive (and long overdue) project to index all the pulp magazines before they finally crumble into dust. Although the format is not the most accessible, these volumes are unique both in adding indexes by artist and by character(!) to the more traditional indexes by issue, by author and by title, and also in including details of issues that were announced but never published. The only disappointing feature of the indexes is that so much space is spent on sf/fantasy and detective pulps that are already comprehensively indexed elsewhere rather than concentrating on the many magazines that have never been indexed before.

On 10-Sep-2001, Victor Berch announced in PulpMags "A colleague and I have all the contents to DROLL STORIES, GREEN BOOK ALBUM/GREEN BOOK, BRIEF STORIES, RED BOOK/REDBOOK (up through 1950). Those are on floppy disks and all we're waiting for is to create a name index and then, once Adventure Fiction Press gets going, those indexes will be made available."
