    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. They called it Strange Detective Mysteries. 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."

    Night Watch was radio's first reality show, a program that brought live and authentic police drama to the airwaves. Each week Don Reed accompanied Officer Ron Perkins on the night watch in Culver City, California. Traveling in an unmarked car, Reed used a heavy battery-powered tape recorder, complete with a microphone cleverly concealed inside the casing of a flashlight, to participate in and record real police calls.

    An underrated and long-running family series, Dr. Christian comes across today more as a quiet anthology of small-town life than as a straight medical drama, bringing the people of the small town of River's End to life through the eyes of the kindly Dr. Paul Christian. As portrayed by actor Jean Hersholt, Dr. Christian can perhaps best be described as a male Molly Goldberg with a medical degree; a gentle and well-meaning meddler who always manages to lead you in the right direction, whether you want to be led there or not.

    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.
