Various: Ten Detective Aces Sampler 3. V1. 1 Mar 2012

(Detective-)Dragnet Magazine/Ten Detective Aces
Ten Detective Aces was probably the most successful of the many magazines that Harold Hersey launched, and certainly one of the longest running, but it took a while to find its mark. For the first 16 issues (to April 1930) it was called The Dragnet Magazine and initially focussed on stories about gangsters and organised crime. However, by 1930 public interest in gangsters was fading and the magazine became more of a detective pulp, initially (for 24 issues) under the hybrid name Detective-Dragnet Magazine and then finally, from March 1933, under the name Ten Detective Aces under which it ran for an impressive 16 years.
A Canadian reprint edition of Ten Detective Aces ran briefly in the 1930s as a direct reprint of the US edition, and then throughout the 1940s typically reprinting a US issue from 9-12 months previously. There was also an abridged British reprint edition under the "abridged" title of Detective Aces.

DEATH'S PLAYGIRL—LAWRENCE TREAT

When a detective plays bellhop on the fugitive trail, he expects to be the guests’ stooge. But this agency man found he’d been sent on a doom-marked errand—with a coffin check for a tip.

DOCTOR OF DOOM—H. Q. MASUR

The mystery of the headless cadavers hurled Assistant Coroner Craig into a sleuth role—with a slab setting. And he was chosen to fill the corpse cast when crime’s curtain fell on Satan’s last act.

SHORT ORDER CROOK—JOE ARCHIBALD

Snooty Piper planned to paste a new mug in the Death House album. For when Philatelist Silas Swunk took the long count, Snooty had to frame a suicide stamp to complete the Grim Reaper’s collection.

CORPSE CURRENT—WALLACE UMPHREY

G-Man O’Bannion was a gun artist who had to turn swim star. For the Raymer snatch plunged O’Bannion headfirst into a . . .CORPSE CURRENT

STOOGE FOR SWAG—ERNEST GANNETT

Detective Rufe Walton didn't know muck about flying, but when a winged wonder dived five stories from the Chamlee Building Rufe zoomed into a trigger tempest.

BANG TALE—JOE ARCHIBALD

Snooty Piper and Scoop Binney become crime jockeys as they follow the nags to a horse-racing homicide. And to get old Abigail Hepplethwaite, the Beantown mint, out from under a first-degree rap, the Dizzy Duo ride a long-shot hunch to a bangtail fare-thee-well.

THE CORPSE IN THE CAGE—DAVID MANNERS

When Detective Les Warren tried to solve the riddle of the lion tamer's death, he followed a hell-sent clue headfirst into the lion's den.

FIVE-STAR FURY—TOM B. STONE

Into the mouths of the hungry newspaper presses Chris Carter fed dynamite copy.
