Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine

Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine was one of the most successful crime digests, running for 337 issues over a period of 30 years from 1956 to 1985, each featuring a novella about the eponymous detective, created by Davis Dresser (although all but a handful of the novellas were written by other authors).

It also spawned an annual that ran for three issues in the early 1970s, an Australian reprint edition that ran for 14 issues in the late 1950s (and which actually reprinted stories from a wide range of US digests) and two separate British reprint editions, one of which (in the 1950s) was identical to the first 12 issues of the Australian reprint edition, while the other ran for 8 issues in the 1960s.

Note that the first six issues were actually titled Michael Shayne Mystery Magazine.
