Pall Mall Budget

Contents were initially almost all reprinted from the daily Pall Mall Gazette, but from 1892 increasingly published much original fiction, including several early short stories by H.G. Wells.

When Harry Furniss bought the title from William Waldorf Astor in 1895, the name changed to The New Budget (as Astor owned the Pall Mall 'brand') but he failed to make a success of it and it died soon after.

The Pall Mall Magazine

Total Issues: 257+29=286

One of the more visually impressive magazines of the 1890s, championing art nouveau. Authors include Thomas Hardy, Hall Caine, H.G. Wells, E.F. Benson, Rudyard Kipling, Bret Harte, George Meredith, E. Nesbit, Anthony Hope, Israel Zangwill, G.K. Chesterton, Joseph Conrad and Jack London.

It was financed by the US millionaire William Waldorf Astor, so occasionally ran his own stories.

In 1909 began a section called 'The Pall Mall Storybook' on book paper. Merged with Nash's Magazine in 1914; relaunched May-1927; re-merged with Nash's Magazine in 1929.

A US edition of the magazine has been seen in 1898, 1899 and 1914, in each case a direct reprint of the UK edition and with the same dates, but it is thought this did not exist for most of the life of the magazine.

Pall Mall. A New Entertainment for Men

Total Issues: 32 (at least)

One or two familiar names appeared in Clubman but generally contributors are low key, although it did publish a couple of stories by Agatha Christie - "The Face of Helen" in Summer 1955 (No.55) and "The Man from the Sea" in Winter 1955-56 (No.60).

Some issues were titled Holiday Clubman.

Presumably related to Bedside Clubman.

Pals (Australia)

"Inspired by the longrunning British juvenile magazine CHUMS, PALS was a fiction paper for boys published in Melbourne commencing as a fortnightly on 28-Aug-1920, went weekly after the first year and ran to 2-Apr-1927. It was also issued in annual volumes, but it should be noted that these did not reprint the complete year, only about 34 issues from August to April with minor re-editing." (Graham Stone)

It was "the official organ of the Australian Boy Scout Scouts' Association (Victorian Section)".

The first series was a slight ephemeral magazine with a bohemian outlook that never got off the ground. It was relaunched as Pan: A Journal for Saints and Cynics which published some fiction, but was generally too aimless. From Jul-1921 it became an all-fiction pulp magazine companion to 20-Story Magazine and featured a lot of mystery and weird fiction as well as adventure stories. Authors include E.C. Vivian, Edgar Wallace, Douglas Newton, Elliott O'Donnell, Guy Dent, Michael Arlen and UK publication of stories by H. Bedford-Jones, George Allan England, Stephen Vincent Benet, Edwin Baird. First English publication of Maurice Level's "Night and Silence" (Jan-1922) later in Weird Tales.
