MacKill's Mystery Magazine

MacKill's Mystery Magazine was primarily a reprint magazine, and ran for 22 monthly issues from September 1952 to June 1954. Each issue featured a story in Roy Vickers' "Department of Dead Ends" series, as well as other classic reprints from authors like Agatha Christie and Ellery Queen.

Some, or all, of the issues were also distributed in the US, initially just with an overprinted price, but after April 1953 with specific US editions with the same volume/issue number but different cover dates.

US reprint edition

It is not clear exactly which issues were published, but the ones seen appear to be identical to the UK issues with the same volume/issue numbers from up to two months earlier.
