Keyhole Mystery Magazine

Initially Keyhole Mystery Magazine presented a good array of the more standard mystery and detective short stories by many of the better-known mystery fiction authors, but was unable to sustain sales and folded after only three issues. It was relaunched over a year later, by a different publisher, under the title Keyhole Detective Story Magazine, with an emphasis on a more violent, fast-action, clip, heavily laced with tough and coarse characters and, above all, sex.
