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.
Thrilling Mystery magazine came from Thrilling Publications, who also produced titles such as Thrilling Wonder Stories, Thrilling Adventures, Thrilling Western, Thrilling Sports, Thrilling Love, Thrilling Baseball, Thrilling Detective, Thrilling Ranch, Thrilling Sports. They also published a number of pulp magazines without "Thrilling" in the title, such as Captain Future, The Black Bat, The Green Ghost and the Phantom Detective.
Thrilling Mystery made its debut in October 1935 as a weird menace publication, following the success of other magazines like Dime Mystery and Terror Tales. As public tastes changed, so did the magazine, gradually phasing out the weird menace angle, and becoming a conventional mystery magazine. With the winter 1945 issue, the title changed to Thrilling Mystery Novel Magazine. In the summer of 1947 it became Detective Mystery Novel Magazine, and finally in the winter of 1949 issue, the title became 2 Detective Mystery Novels Magazine. It was a long-lived pulp magazine that published its last issue in the winter of 1951. Thrilling Mystery returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
