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.
Weird menace combined with detective tales... that was what Star Detective Magazine offered. And boy did it deliver! Beginning with the inaugural May 1935 issue, readers were treated to ghouls and gats, magic and mayhem, manhunting and machine-gunning, crime and coffins. These were smashing two-fisted action stories that were published on a quarterly basis until 1939. At that time, the name was changed to Uncanny Tales and the magazine continued for a little over a year... five issues to be exact. At that point, the genre seemed to lose steam, and the magazine folded, as did many of the other shudder pulps that saturated the newsstands. There were 16 issues published in all. Star Detective Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
