77 Sunset Strip

Total Issues: 1

Published shortly after the demise of a very similar magazine, Tightrope, from the same publisher, 77 Sunset Strip also hoped to gain from the publicity of a popular television series of the same name. The pulp size and format was an anachronism and, despite the better-than-average run of contemporary crime-adventure stories, the magazine folded after a single issue.

Sexton Blake Library

Total Issues: 382+744+526=1652

Featuring long stories of the titular detective hero, it ran in parallel with the weekly Union Jack, and in fact long outlived that publication, lasting into the 1960s; "complete detective stories, of about 35,000 words... The same central characters - Sexton Blake, Paula Dane and Tinker - are invariably involved".

Unofficially, the 'New Look' given to the Sexton Blake Library in Jun-1956 marks the beginning of a '4th Series', widely recognised by collectors and subsequently adopted by the editor W. Howard Baker, who continued to edit the Blake '5th Series' in paperback format from Mayflower-Dell (1965 - 1968) and later in hardback. The SBL was also translated into foreign languages from the 1930s on; one edition was published in Buenos Aires as "El Neuevo Magazine Sexton Blake" in the 1940s and 1950s; other editions appeared in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Holland, Portugal and Spain, and also translated in Hindustani.
