Alfred Hitchcock's Anthology

Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine

Total Issues: 712 (to Mar/Apr-2018)

Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine is one of the longest-running crime magazines, having recently celebrated it's fiftieth anniversary (and 600th issue). For most of its life it has been a digest magazine, changing briefly to a larger format from May 1957 through January 1958. Although Hitchcock gave his name to the magazine, signed the brief editorial introductions, and appeared on the cover for twenty-five years, he never really had any direct involvement with the magazine.

Note that the cover title changed to Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine in 1993, but the table of contents still retains the full name.
