(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.
