The Ladies' World

Country: US

The Ladies' World was another of the low-priced, mass-market magazines aimed at women and their interests. It was begun by as a "mail-order magazine" published on cheap newsprint. Bought in 1912 by McClure Publications, publishers of McClure's Magazine, it became a full-fledged magazine with some full-color covers by famous artists. Sales reached a million copies a month when a series of mystery stories "What Happened to Mary" became a runaway success in film; this film series is generally considered the first movie serial ever made.

The Lady's Magazine [1901]

Country: UK
Total Issues: 42+4+5+393=444

In its first incarnation, published the "Chronicles of Addington Peace" series of crime stories by B. Fletcher Robinson (Aug-1904 - Jan-1905). Came of age when renamed The Novel Magazine, becoming Pearson's rival to Newnes's Grand Magazine.

Stories often superficial and slight, with a bias towards light romance but also included many mystery and ghost stories and, from Jan-1912 featured a regular "uncanny tale" slot (later the basis for two anthologies); also published "The White Ghost of Disaster" by Mayn Clew Garrett (Jun-1912 -- from the US May-1912 Popular Magazine) which presaged the Titanic. Authors include Sax Rohmer, Talbot Mundy, A.M. Burrage, Elinor Mordaunt and many US authors (Achmed Abdullah, Ray Cummings, Murray Leinster).

Dropped most weird fiction by 1923 and shifted more to romance and mystery -- published many stories by Agatha Christie and Richmal Crompton.

Note that the cover title was Lady's Home Magazine of Fiction from Nov-1904 to Jan-1905, and was The Home Magazine of Fiction for Feb-1905 alone.
