The Ghost (Super-)Detective

Total Issues: 3+1+3=7

Featuring George Chance, a stage magician turned hero, The Ghost, Super-Detective (as it was originally called) was a low-budget effort from the start, featuring only the lead novel and a couple of short stories. After three issues it had a single issue as simple The Ghost Detective, followed by another three as The Green Ghost Detective, before succumbing to the World War II paper shortage.

The character stories about the Ghost Detective continued in Thrilling Mystery.

Total Issues: 33+32=65 (as at Oct-2017)

Small press magazine devoted to the ghost story genre, mixing fiction and articles. Continued after 2001 as The Ghosts & Scholars M.R. James Newsletter which was meant to include only nonfiction "confined to M.R. James and his circle of ghost-story writing friends and associates", but gradually added more fiction until it became indistinguishable from the original.

Ghost Stories

Total Issues: 64

The early issues were published in the format of Macfadden's "true story" magazines. To add versimilitude, the magazine was illustrated with double-exposure photographs and the stories often carried double bylines in the form "by X as told to Y," where X was the narrator of the story and Y was the actual author.
