The Covers of Detective Short Stories


Throughout the 30s and the 40s, Detective Short Stories offered readers 12 stories for ten cents.  That seems like a pretty good deal to me!  Today, of course, issues of the magazine cost a lot more but they are still highly sought after by collectors for their covers.

Below is just a small, chronological sampling of the covers of Detective Short Stories!
