    In 1934, a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names - the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines - weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. By 1937, Ace Magazines tried to enter the field with Eerie Stories. Unfortunately, it didn't catch on, only lasting one issue before folding. This is that issue. Eerie Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s listeners in audiobook format.

Werewolves and vampires mixed in with extortionists and gangsters. And solve their problems he did, with the aid of his strapping red-headed assistant, mechanic Jack Ransom, and his young stock boy Abe Ginsberg.

    In the Fall of 1937, Popular Publications launched a new type of detective magazine, one that combined the weird-menace-style stories that had made Terror Tales and Horror Stories so hot with readers with hardboiled detective-action tales.

In his first-issue editorial, managing editor Rogers Terrill set the stage: "Remember the time you read that one perfect knockout detective story - bizarre, mysterious, thrill-packed, different? It still remains the detective story for you."
