Detective Tales (UK) [1949]

Some confusion surrounds this title. Mike Cook in MYSTERY, DETECTIVE, AND ESPIONAGE MAGAZINES lists a T.V. Boardman {Detective Tales} that he claims ran for 119 issues (with the first two issues entitled {New Detective Tales}) from 1949-1951. This seems unlikely and it is possible that this was confused with the {Boardman Pocket Reader} series (whose numbering began at #101).

Detective Tales (UK) [1950]
