Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
Ten detective stories, every one complete. All kinds of stories, each designed to keep the reader wide awake. That was 10 Story Detective. Every publisher of pulp magazines had a stable of detective action magazines. From Ace Magazines, also known as Periodical House, came 10 Story Detective magazine, which featured shorter detective fiction. Periodical House, aka Ace Magazines, started in the crime fiction field with Ten Detective Aces in 1928 (under the short-lived title of The Dragnet Magazine). As the audience for detective yards increased, Ace Magazines added 10 Story Detective, premiering in January 1938 and the magazine ran for eleven years, winding up with the August 1949 issue. It was standard sized at 112 pages and cost a standard dime, yet within those pages were some of the most entertaining crime fiction printed. 10 Story Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
