Radio Archives Pulp Classics
Detective Short Stories eBook
April 1943
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.
Table of Contents:
The Secret Weapon Murders
by Russell Gray
Catching criminals was Police Chief Regan’s specialty, whether they were petty thieves or big-city gangsters or Nazi spies!
Too Much Murder
by Cyril Plunkett
Fear, cold, stark fear was what was mainly in this girl’s eyes, and she was also very lovely, and if this was Death walking in, it was okay with Keith Nolding!
Death Is a Damsel in Distress
by Robert C. Blackmon
So maybe it was circumstantial evidence again this time and nothing else, and maybe Joe Logan’s best friend hadn’t committed this murder either...
A Corpse for O’Hara
by Frederic Sinclair
Every corpse this O’Hara came across was a personal insult to his dignity as a dick!
Japs in the Belfry
by L.R. Batman
It was war, so Patrolman Angelo Murphy was cracking down on Japs, and to heck with clues and suspects and circumstantial evidence!
Dangerous Dame
by Erie Howard
One of the suspects was a luscious red-head, so it would have been right down Private Detective Alec Woods’ alley even without the blackmail and murder!
Copper’s Kid
by Ralph Berard
A copper couldn’t do any good dead, and there was only one way old Joe Gannon could avoid that bloody condition!
The Patriotic Phantom
by Dale Cochrane
When a fighting Yank on the home front bucks the rubber black market!
Don’t Worry About the Killer
by Thomas Thursday
All coppers were dumb, the Al Rook mob claimed, but proving it was another matter!
Cadavers Don’t Make a Fifth Column
by Frederic Brown
They were spies Williams had cornered, all right, but it wasn’t going to help to call the F.B.I. or the police!
