Nick Carter Magazine

Total Issues: 34+6=40

Although Nick Carter, as a character, had been appearing in various formats (and magazines) since 1886, the material was being to feel dated by the time Nick Carter Magazine was launched in 1933. As such, while the name of the character (and some of his companions) were retained, the stories were deliberately targetted at a "new generation". Each issue featured a lead Nick Carter novella, as well as a couple of short stories.

Nick Carter Weekly (UK)

Total Issues: 7+15=22

"This was an attempt to introduce the famous American sleuth, probably by arrangement with Street and Smith of New York who had run him for years. It was of about Detective Weekly size with a coloured cover. Evidently there was little hope of Nick Carter becoming a rival to Sexton Blake over here, for with No. 8 it was styled "The New Story Paper" with 'Nick Carter' in smaller type. The story of the detective was shortened and odds and ends added. This did not save it, for according to the British Museum, No.22 was the last."

Night and Day

Modelled on The New Yorker, it carried fiction, poetry, cartoons and political commentary as well as film, book and theatre reviews. It had an adventurous choice of contributors, among whom were Walter Allen, the literary critic, who wrote a football column; Herbert Read, the art historian, who wrote on crime fiction; Elizabeth Bowen, the novelist, on theatre, and Graham Greene on cinema. The latter's review of a Shirley Temple film, suggesting that the child star was a sexual tease, led to an expensive libel suit which forced the magazine to fold after only six months.
