Mary Higgins Clark Mystery Magazine

Total Issues: 7

Published by Family Circle, Mary Higgins Clark Mystery Magazine was very mainstream, very slick, and very glossy. It was filled with trivia, lists, reviews, short interviews and even found room for some good stories. Its publishing schedule was sporadic at best, because it was published to fill the same slots as the traditional baking, knitting, etc., magazines which made up Family Circle "special projects" - this also explained the unusual volume numbering. However, it never really found a niche and died after seven issues.

The Masked Detective (1940)

Total Issues: 12

The Masked Detective was launched in 1940 at the height of the popularity of the "pulp hero" magazines, and each issue featured a novel about Rex Parker, the "masked detective", as well as a handful of short stories and departments. It appeared on a quarterly basis but only lasted 12 issues before becoming a casualty of the paper shortages of World War II.
