Various: Ten Detective Aces Sampler 5. V1. 6 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

SWING & SLAY—LAWRENCE TREAT

Young Detective Bullitt was a fellow passenger of Death. For a corpse rode on that elevated train with him. Bullitt had to change his plans to fit terror’s timetable—and the temper of a dark-eyed exotic girl.

A HALF INTEREST IN HELL—EMILE C. TEPPERMAN

The daring young gal on the flying trapeze urged Marty Quade to make a strange bargain. But the young and beautiful lion tamer warned him to forget it. For he had been offered—a half interest in hell.

DAMES ON A BULLET BINGE—FREDERICK C. DAVIS

There was Sue, the rich man’s daughter—and Donna, the willful beauty—and Rosita, the glamour guy’s wife—and Vella, the luscious dancer . . . Young Mike, the lawyer, tried to help them all—and mixed corpses with cocktails on a merry murder binge.

THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBES DOOM—ROBERT EDGAR

Young Doctor Meade took charge of the beautiful victim of the hit-run driver. And he found that the only cure was a quick dose of lead capsules.

DOG FEUD—JOE ARCHIBALD

The pooch liked to gnaw on rugs and gents’ ankles. And he liked Snooty Piper—which put Snooty behind a blitzkrieg of eight-balls.

SLAUGHTER-WITH A SMILE—ROBERT TURNER

The pert car-hops at Do-Drive-Inn gave service with a smile. But K. C. Jones, Hollywood trouble-shooter, knew that one of these cuties passed out slugs with the soda pop.

FANGS OF JUSTICE—HAL QUINCY

The stone throat of the statue of the blindfolded lady must have rumbled with laughter when courtroom clowns turned the law into the . . . .Fangs Of Justice

HIGH TENSION TIP-OFF—KENNETH L. SINCLAIR

Old Trem had once been an engineer, and he rigged up a . . . .High Tension Tip-Off

KNAVES AND KNIVES—H. Q. MASUR

Lady Luck was snubbing Sam Quentin. He wanted a new deal in the crazy homicide honeymoon case—but all he got was a double-deal in knaves and knives.

AUTOPSY AND EVA—JOE ARCHIBALD

Snooty Piper gets tangled up with the draft board and a mysterious suicide. The army doesn’t want him, so screwball Snooty Piper pulls an about-face to the morgue.
