PULP NOW: MIKE SHAYNE MYSTERY MAGAZINE COVER CAVALCADE!

PULP NOW: MIKE SHAYNE MYSTERY MAGAZINE COVER CAVALCADE!

ALTHOUGH, MIKE SHAYNE MYSTERY MAGAZINE WAS ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL CRIME DIGESTS – RUNNING FOR 337 ISSUES OVER A PERIOD OF 30 YEARS FROM 1956 TO 1985 – IT WAS NEVER CONSIDERED A HIGH END PULP, EITHER FOR THE RATES IT PAID ITS WRITERS OR THE QUALITY OF ITS COVER GRAPHICS. STILL, LOOKING BACK, THERE IS A CERTAIN NOSTALGIC VALUE TO ITS COVERS . . .
