The Crime & Detective Pulps


This list, mostly pinched from William F. Nolan's excellent The Black Mask Boys (1985), is almost certainly incomplete. The pulps came and went, switching titles and publishers and formats, with gay abandon. Some lasted only an issue or two; some hung on way past their expiry date. Still, most of them are here, and, like Nolan, I haven't included any of the digests or non-genre magazines that sometimes published various types of crime fiction.
