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.
Mystery Book Magazine was a bid to cash in on the post-war mystery boom. Each issue featured a full-length mystery novel written by a top-notch mystery writer. It made its debut in 1945, but due to poor sales, it changed from monthly to bi-monthly and in 1947 to quarterly. In 1950, in an effort to boost sales, it changed its name to Giant Detective. Two issues later, it ceased publication. During its 34-issue, 6-year run, it presented some top rated mysteries for its pulp readers, from the best writers in the field, including four original Michael Shayne mysteries by Brett Halliday. Mystery Book Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
