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.
Action, action and action... in spades! Nothing subtle about it, each issue of Detective Short Stories featured ten-to-twelve relentless, shameless, fierce action tales. Manvis Publications, the same publisher who brought you Ka-Zar, Amazing Detective Cases, American Sky Devils, Uncanny Stories, Six-Gun Western, Marvel Science Stories and many others, brought out the first issue of Detective Short Stories in August of 1937 and continued dishing the pulp thrills until the magazine folded with the October 1943 issue, yet another victim of wartime paper shortages. For twenty-five issues, readers got a wallop of exciting adventure for their thin dime. Detective Short Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
