Double-Action Detective

Total Issues: 8

Promising "double-action thrills in the world of crime", the magazine typically featured tough detective and crime-adventure tableaus, spotlighting the hard-boiled school of the private eye.

The title was revived as a digest in 1954 when Silberkleit thought the field was expanding. Although really a second series of the same magazine it is treated separately below.

Double-Action Detective Stories

Total Issues: 24?

Double Action Detective Stories was a pulp magazine in every way but size, at a time when the competition had moved on to more sophisticated material. Initially published only twice a year (although the issues weren't dated), it shifted to a quarterly schedule after the fifth issue, and then to a bimonthly schedule the following year, changing its name at much the same time to Double Action Detective and Mystery Stories.

Double-Action Gang Magazine

Total Issues: 6+9+1=16

Double-Action Gang Magazine was a short-lived member of the "Double Action" magazine group and claimed to be oriented to "guns, gangsters, gun molls and stories of true gang life". It ran on a vaguely bimonthly schedule for 4 years. The final, October 1939, issue was confusingly renamed to True Gangster Stories despite containing the same mix of fact and fiction as before.
