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.
Ace Mystery Magazine was an early weird-menace pulp that featured the strange and unusual. The May 1936 issue started off with a bang, but the magazine closed down after only two more issues. The November 1936 issue, technically the fourth one, was retitled Detective Romances, and the magazine continued for one more issue under that title. Published by Periodical House, aka Ace Magazines, the short-lived series was produced on a strict budget, in order to sell at the low 10¢ price point. As such, sales couldn't sustain the magazine, and after the fifth issue in January 1937, it ceased publication. But during its short run, it featured some of the genre's top authors, and gave readers many a thrill. Ace Mystery Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
