Ghosts & Scholars

Country: UK
Total Issues: 33+40=73 (as at Jul-2021)

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

Country: US
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.
