Scientific Detective Monthly

Total Issues: 6+5+5=16

A detective magazine with emphasis on the use of science to solve crimes. About half the stories contain sufficiently exaggerated science to be classed as SF. Title was changed to Amazing Detective Tales after the sixth issue. The December 1930 Author & Journalist announced that the title had been purchased by Fiction Publishers, run by Wallace Bamber and the magazine was relaunched as Amazing Detective Stories in February 1931, though only five more issues are known, folding in August 1931.
