The Sovereign Magazine [1919]

Total Issues: 88

All-fiction magazine. Initially most stories were light or humorous (e.g. Ruby M. Ayres) but with a dash of zest now and again (courtesy of Achmed Abdullah and also ran the six "Tarzan the Untamed" stories). Although some issues had no weird fiction at all, other issues featured a lot, especially after Hutchinson's deal with Macfadden when he began reprinting from Ghost Stories (including the posed photographs) as well as material from Weird Tales.
