Guilty and Trapped Detective Story Magazines

Guilty Detective Story Magazine and Trapped Detective Story Magazine were companion magazines launched by Feature Publications in June/July 1956. Both determined to show that the spirit of the 1940s detective pulp magazines was still alive and well in the 1950s, albeit in a digest format. Guilty Detective Story Magazine ran for 35 issues and Trapped Detective Story Magazine for 34 issues, initially alternating on a bi-monthly schedule.
