Thrills, mystery and action! Popular Detective magazine really lived up to its name. It was one of the longest running detective pulps and contained some of the best of detective fiction around. November 1934 saw the inaugural issue, coming from Better Publications, the publisher of all those Thrilling pulps... Thrilling Detective, Thrilling Mystery, Thrilling Western, Thrilling Adventures, Thrilling Wonder Stories and many others without the word "Thrilling" in the title, as well. The Black Bat, Captain Future, The Green Ghost, the Phantom Detective... all these were from Better Publications. Popular Detective was offered monthly until 1938, then bi-monthly. And within those 128 pages, could be found authors like C.K.M. Scanlon, Frederick C. Painton, L. Ron Hubbard, Johnston McCulley, Leslie Charteris, and many others of top-notch talent. The magazine finally folder in the fall of 1953, after an amazing 133 issues of quality detective fiction. Popular Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
