Biographical / Historical
Begun in 1946, Mystery Book Magazine was a monthly magazine with full color covers. It suffered from poor sales, and as a result changed to bi-monthly publication briefly in 1947, before dropping to quarterly. It pubished steadily for three years, until in 1950 it changed name to Giant Detective. It only published two issues under this name until it ceased publication in 1951.
These materials are arranged chronologially.
