Scientific Detective (Annual)

A saddle-stitched, digest-size magazine of standard crime-adventure fare, Scientific Detective belied its name and had several fact articles and an occasional quiz about its fiction, which appears to be primarily reprint material. It's commencement is not known; the earliest issue noted has been March 1945, labeled volume 5, number 1; the latest issue inspected was dated May 1948.

There were also at least two, undated, issues of Scientific Detective Annual one of which appears to have preceded the first issue of Scientific Detective and the other of which reprinted some stories from early issues of the latter.

Other issues of both magazines probably exist.
