Amazing

Total Issues: 1

Apparently an "ashcan" issue published for trademark purposes. Ziff-Davis issued a large number of these in the late 40's but the purpose of this one is not certain. It is known that Howard Browne planned to convert Amazing Stories to a large-size, semi-slick format in 1950 but was thwarted by paper rationing when the Korean War started. This issue may have been printed to protect a modified version of Amazing's title and logo.

Amazing Detective Mystery Stories (UK)

Mike Cook, in MYSTERY, DETECTIVE, AND ESPIONAGE MAGAZINES, says one issue is known of this pulp magazine, but provides no details of it and no copy has been located. It seems likely that this was a misreading for the 1950 {Mystery Stories} which carried a banner heading of "Amazing Detective Mystery".
