Total Issues: 4240

Essentially an expose magazine aimed at political and society issues, but covering all forms of art and literature. It usually ran one or two stories per issue and, in 1877, Grenville Murray began the popular "Queer Stories" feature that later supplied enough material to fill at least 24 books of selected reprints. Most stories were anonymous and many gave the impression of being true, but all (?) were fiction. Truth published H.G. Wells's "In the Modern Vein" (8-Mar-1894). Later contributors included E.R. Punshon and Douglas Newton.

Truth (Canada)

Subtitled "A Weekly Magazine of Current Literature", the magazine features a mix of short and medium-length Canadian and international news (some identified by source), jokes and puns and amusing anecdotes, short essays about politics, installments of four or five novels, and lots of ads (including one for the Great Ottoman Blood Remedy). Sort of a late Victorian Canadian READER'S DIGEST.

Also known for a time as "Truth for the People".
