Strange Romances

Country: US
Total Issues: 3?

Strange Romances was another one of those ever present publications that seek to capitalize upon sensationalized accounts of true and often gruesome events. Here we have detailed reviews of off-beat romantic relationships ending in tragedy. Some of the fictionalized accounts do have a hint of weird menace or supernatural occurences but none of them are truly of this nature. Three issues have been seen and others may well exist.

Strange Suicides

Country: US
Total Issues: 2

Strange Suicides may well have been the most bizarre entry in the magazine field of the 1930's. The magazine's policy was given in the first issue. It was to cover, "The choice of the most dramatic events in our field, but not to neglect the unknown". Although the magazine purports to be true, it is probably mostly fictional.

A Hersey magazine put out pseudonymously; he called it one of his "missteps in the dark"!
