Alfred Hitchcock's Suspense Magazine

Total Issues: 15?

The contents of this magazine came from Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, and typically contained most/all of the stories from the U.S. issue dated 2 or 3 months earlier.

The earliest issues of the magazine claimed to be an Australasian edition of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, although by the Jul-1958 issue the magazine claimed to be a British Empire edition, despite the fact that a separate British edition of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine was published in England from Sep-1957 to Aug-1958.
