It was initially titled The Creasey Mystery Magazine and mainly featured reprint stories selected by Creasey, but was renamed to John Creasey Mystery Magazine when Creasey took over publication in October 1957, and thereafter featured a sprinkling of new stories both by old favourites and new authors.
