For the Vintage Sleuth!

Established in the early 1900's, detective magazines, were some of the most widely read American magazines of the time.  
The 1930s, was the so-called Golden Age of the detective magazine when the major crimes figures of the Depression, like Bonnie and Clyde and the Barker gang roamed the Midwest. Supposedly, these bandits were themselves avid readers of the genre. As television grew into our main source of crime news, detective magazines went into decline and today are virtually extinct. Here's just a few from our store.
