Mammoth Detective

Total Issues: 33

Mammoth Detective was the older of the two mystery-detective pulp magazines published by Ziff-Davis, and weighed in initially with a massive 322 pages per issue and a planned monthly schedule. However the paper shortages during the war forced an irregular schedule closer to quarterly and a reduction in page count to 178 pages. After the war it briefly attained a monthly schedule but by then the writing was on the wall and it folded in late 1947 after a total of 33 issues.

The Man (UK)

British reprint edition of the Australian magazines Man and Pocket Man. For the first couple of issues, the magazine had no advertising whatsoever, had good quality card covers, featured re-edited and selected material that previously appeared in Australia together with editorials specially written for the British market, and carried the full title of "The Man, Empire Magazine for Men".

With the Feb-1939 issue, however, it dropped the sub-title, changed to digest format, and became a direct reprint of the Australian magazine (albeit in a different format) including all the original Australian advertisements. It was probably suspended at some point during World War II and, following the creation of Pocket Man in Australia, it started reprinting issues of that magazine, with the original issues of Man now being reprinted in a new magazine called Man Senior.

Man About Town (UK)

Launched in 1952 by journalist John Taylor as a spin-off from The Tailor & Cutter, a trade journal, Man About Town is usually described as the first magazine for men published in the UK, although it was concerned mostly with fashion, unlike men's magazines then starting to appear in the USA. In 1960 it was taken over by Clive Labovitch and Michael Heseltine (later an MP) and published initially by a subsidiary of their Cornmarket Press, Fame Magazine Ltd. The magazine was glossy, well designed and tapped into the growing sixties scene with photography by Terence Donovan and David Bailey.
