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... that's the basic concept that Thrilling Publications offered in Detective Mystery Novel Magazine. This magazine went through several name changes, as pulps were known to do. It began in 1935 as Thrilling Mystery, a weird menace magazine. As the public's tastes changed, so did the content of the pulp. The shudder tales were replaced by detective mysteries, and in Winter 1945 the title was changed to Thrilling Mystery Novel Magazine. It lasted thirteen issues under this title, then changed to Detective Mystery Novel Magazine, a subtle but distinctive difference. Nine issues later, with the Winter 1949 issue, it became 2 Detective Mystery Novels Magazine. It closed after five more issues. During its "mystery novels" phase, it published some of best murder mysteries on the market. It outlasted its sibling publication, a similarly named Detective Novel Magazine, by two years, ceasing publication with the Winter 1951 issue. Detective Mystery Novel Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
