Radio Archives Pulp Classics
Detective Short Stories eBook
October 1947
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. Four years later in October of 1947, there was an attempt to revive the pulp by a different publisher, Exclusive Detective Stories, Inc. It sadly failed, and the series ended after that sole twenty-sixth issue. Detective Short Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
Table of Contents:
A Kiss Goodnight Leads To Another — Murder
by Lee E. Wells
It you jokingly threaten to kill your best friend if he ever dates your girl, remember this — don’t do it just before the cops find him with a bullet through his heart!
It’s Your Funeral
by Erie Howard
A guy had a motive when he murdered another guy, like maybe he found out the other guy had stolen his job, or his sweetheart. A guy didn’t murder another guy just because he didn’t like his looks...
Watch The Dead Man Walk
by Ken Jason
The mug had gray eyes that didn’t smile. A really hard baby. He could have bumped off a character the way you or me would swat a fly...
Homicide Is My Hobby
by Herbert Breen
This couldn’t be a hold-up, yet Phil Johnson certainly had a gun jammed in his back — this couldn’t be murder, yet Phil was pretty sure he didn’t have much longer to live!
Case Of The Waterlogged Clue
by Leo Stalnaker
The mayor was sure to fire Chief of Detectives Bond if he muffed this murder mess, but that didn’t stop Chief Bond from listing as his top suspects the Mayor’s secretary, the mayor’s chauffeur, the mayor’s candidate for Bond’s job — and the mayor himself!
The Gentle Killer
by Ralph Berard
He was the gun-famous private detective, Bruce Walters, and the gent who had rented the adjoining beach cabin was Public Enemy No. 1, but that still didn’t mean anything to Bruce...
The Book Of The Damned
by W. Fredric Kruger and W.C. Gault
The beautiful blond who’d been bumped off was a nightclub singer, and that is what worried Lieutenant Joe Coyle of Homicide — because so was the beautiful brunette he hoped to marry!
I’ll Be Slaying You
by Robert Turner
Mike McQuane wanted nothing to do with this business, but the girl had a face and a shape it hurt you to look at, and Mike figured his own pan could stand a few more beatings...
Death Keeps A Date
by Red Patterson
“Boots” Miller had been dynamite in the backfield, but when he became a detective on the force, he found that an underworld boss and his frill could add up to TNT!
An Eye For Murder
by Bryce Walton
Old Man Hammond might murder a man — all the evidence pointed straight at him — but he just wasn’t the type to gouge his victim’s eye out with a letter opener!
