Suspense [1958]

Total Issues: 32

Created as a companion magazine to the British Argosy magazine, Suspense published many original stories by crime writers of the first rank. It lasted for 32 issues before being absorbed into its parent magazine.

Most (possibly all) of the issues were distributed in Australia and South Africa with identical contents but with covers changed to contain Australian and South African prices and, initially, to read English Suspense. Where known these are displayed below the original covers.
