(Racketeer and) Gangland Stories

Racketeer Stories and Gangland Stories were two of Harold Hersey's less successful gangster pulp magazines, attempting to cash in on the popularity of Gangster Stories. The former lasted for only 18 (or possibly 19) issues and the latter for a mere 14 issues before the two magazines were merged to form Racketeer and Gangland Stories, which lasted a mere three issues.
