T.P.'s Weekly

Mostly a paper of literary, artistic and political comment and review, but it usually published a story or two each issue, plus poetry. In 1916 it was renamed To-Day by the then editor, Holbrook Jackson, and rapidly became a completely different magazine.

In 1923 O'Connor took over Cassell's Weekly and renamed it T.P.'s and Cassell's Weekly, shortened in 1927 to T.P.'s Weekly again. This new incarnation featured several short stories and interviews each week; primarily had a literary emphasis often with author symposia. Often reprinted stories, but new authors include Algernon Blackwood, Arthur Machen, Oliver Onions.
