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 Book Magazine offered readers. Fiction House, publishers of Action Stories, Jungle Stories, Planet Stories and others, first published Detective Book Magazine in April of 1930. (Not to be confused with Detective Novels Magazine, which was the same concept but from a different publisher.) Detective Book Magazine was withdrawn from the newsstands in September 1931. But after researching the pulp market, Fiction House revived the magazine with the Fall 1937 issue. This time it was well received, and it stayed in publication until the Winter 1952/53 issue. It featured top-notch novels from some of pulpdom's great authors. There were 65 issues published in all. Detective Book Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

The Triple Cross
By Joe Barry
He came to in a hospital, recovering from a bullet-crease. He learned he was Rush Henry, a private dick — and a fast man with a gun, a buck or a gal. It was all a little hard to believe. But, when he walked out into the street and the guns began to bang and the fists went smack and the knives flickered, he saw it didn’t make any difference what he thought. He was up to his neck in a bucket of blood and, if he wanted to go on being anybody, his only chance was to make like Rush Henry, a private dick — but fast!
Passport To Hell — Thrilling Short Story

Morg Epherson figured he could make the old Judge’s secret shame pay off. He forgot his own, much deadlier secret!
Portrait Of A Murderess — Thrilling Short Story
