Horror’s Holiday Special

Mystery Magazine (No Date)

This is an odd magazine. The cover is a straight copy of Dime Mystery July 1938, with the word Dime removed and a red border around it. There is no date, and it is not listed in Bookery’s Guide to Pulps.

  1. Judging by the price it was probably a British reprint edition. I thought that those were only published in the 50s, and with the full masthead. This might have been an Ashcan edition.

  2. According to philsp.com :

    “Publishers : William C. Merrett, Ltd., London, England.
    Seemingly a one-shot that reprinted a single story from Dime Mystery Magazine (circa 1946).
    The cover states that “The Werewolf of Wall Street” by Edith & Ejler Jacobson is also in the issue, but it isn’t.”

  3. I guess they had to remove “dime” because the price was 2 shillings and maybe “2 Shillings Mystery Magazine” didn’t sound right :)
