Famous Fantastic Mysteries began publication in 1939 under the Frank A. Munsey Co., but across the course of its publication, it changed publications three times. The editor was Mary Gnaedinger. Famous Fantastic Mysteries was a slight peculiarity because it did not print any new or original content, but rather reprinted the best stories from other magazines. It became rather popular for this reason, and continued on until it merged with Fantastic Novels Magazine in 1952, and then ceased publication all together in 1953.
