Spicy Mystery Stories

April 1936 Issue
"Zang took my body and blew the breath of a soul into it. Before Zang, I was nothing. Now I am all!"
Produced by Culture Publications (I love that) this title is among the "weird menace" or "shudder pulp" genre, as distinguished from its hard-boiled detective counterparts through its use of supernatural or extraterrestrial themes. They were horror stories, a descendant of the Grand Guignol for their use of torture and brutality. For their time they were rather pornographic.
