Short Stories Magazine
Short Stories Magazine was one of the most important, and most successful, of the pulp magazines, running for a massive 1114 issues over a period of 70 years, although the last six of those years saw it first shrink to a digest and then expand, briefly, to a slick "men's magazine".
A British reprint edition was published from 1920 to 1955, and then briefly revived in 1958/59. There were also an unknown number of a Canadian reprint edition.
