Crack Detective Stories eBook
November 1948
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.
Crack Detective Stories was a magazine that underwent multiple name changes... eight of them! During the middle of its run, it was known as Crack Detective Stories, but it didn't start out that way. Detective Yarns, as it was first known, made its debut with the June 1938 issue, coming from Columbia Publications. It switched to a character pulp, featuring The Black Hood as of September 1941, and its name changed to Black Hood Detective. Then it became Hooded Detective for two issues until Crack Detective was born in May of 1942. After ten issues a single word was added to the name, and it became Crack Detective Stories. With the November 1949 issue the title was changed to Famous Detective, and then after three issues it became Famous Detective Stories. The final incarnation began in December 1956 with the name Crack Detective and Mystery Stories. This title lasted for four issues. The final issue was July 1957, outlasting most of the other pulp magazines on the market. There were 97 issues published in all. Crack Detective Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
