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.
A complete book-length murder mystery novel in each pulp magazine... plus a couple of short stories to round out the magazine. That's what Detective Novel Magazine offered readers. One of the many pulp magazines in the Thrilling line, aka Better Publications, it started out as Detective Novels Magazine in January/February 1938. Two complete novels in each magazine. This was reduced to a single novel, plus a couple short stories, in the August 1944 issue, and the title accordingly changed to Detective Novel Magazine. (All not to be confused with Detective Book Magazine, which was the same concept but from a different publisher.) The magazine continued until it was withdrawn from newsstands in the Summer of 1949. In all, 67 issues of thrilling murder mysteries were published. Detective Novel Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
