Suspense (Magazine)

There were three different digest magazines, and one slick magazine, called Suspense. The first was an attempt to cash in on the popular CBS radio mystery show of the same title, and ran for a mere 4 issues in 1946/47. The second, officially Suspense Magazine, had the same objective and, by coincidence, also ran for only 4 issues, this time in 1951/1952.

The first with any degree of success was the third, a British magazine founded in 1958 as a companion magazine to the British Argosy magazine. It ran for 32 issues before being merged into Argosy, and was also reprinted in Australia, initially as English Suspense.

The fourth Suspense Magazine appeared in the late 2000s.

Suspense (UK)

Most (possibly all) of the issues were distributed in Australia and South Africa with identical contents but with covers changed to contain Australian and South African prices and, initially, to read English Suspense. Where known these are displayed below the original covers.
