Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine

A selection of issues of EQMM - the leader in mystery short story publishing since 1941.

Many leading writers saw their work published in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine for the first time, and many known for novels have had short pieces here.

This site will list them all, with as much detail as I can get on the contents of each. Many are for sale - please remember all of them are 'used' - and I give a guide to their condition!

Issue / Year   1941   1942   1943   1944   1945   1946   1947   1948   1949   1950   1951   1952   1953   1954   1955   1956   1957   1958   1959   1960   1961   1962   1963   1964   1965   1966   1967   1968   1969   1970   1971   1972   1973   1974   1975   1976   1977   1978   1979   1980   1981   1982   1983   1984   1985   1986   1987   1988   1989   1990   1991   1992   1993   1994   1995   1996   1997   1998   1999   2000   2001   2002   2003   2009   2010   2011   2012   2013

However, if there's a particular EQMM issue you seek, do ask, as I have many issues, and too little time to add them all!

Please note - the lists of contents published here are incomplete, and I cannot confirm their accuracy, except where I have a copy to sell; this is because Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine has been published on (at least) three continents, and there were reprints. I have been given lots of information to help build this site, and it's been given (and taken) in good faith ... but errors do creep in, despite our best efforts. In general, I match the US edition of EQMM - later editions wer simply reprints of the US version, but earlier ones varied a lot. I'm afraid I haven't yet worked out when things changed, but if in doubt, do ask!

If any of the editions listed here interest you, please send an email (address below), for a final quotation, including postage (please state your country - I'll be posting from the UK).

Individual issue prices vary with condition and rarity, all are used. If in doubt, please ask.


Buying a Series:

I will usually be happy to offer a redcution for people buying multiple copies, do ask!


UK buyers:

I prefer reliable electronic payments - via Paypal - for speed and simplicity.

Cash (at your small risk) is quite acceptable, but I prefer cheques (£££s from a UK bank; allow time to clear).


Outside the UK:

I prefer reliable electronic payments - via Paypal - for speed and simplicity.

I can accept cash (GBP-£££s, USD-$$$s and Euros) at your (small) risk. I cannot accept money orders of any kind, as conversion to my currency is prohibitively expensive.


Selling YOUR EQMM:

Why you DON'T want me to buy your magazines!


A note on condition:

EQMM is printed on cheap paper; this means that the paper tends to oxidize (tan, go brown) - rapidly in direct light, so tops and bottoms are frequently quite dark. My copies are all used / second hand / preowned - so have often sat in briefcases, or even been rolled in pockets. So few are pristine, but most are good, and I store them in the dark, flat, so I minimise any further damage. I'll always note any significant flaws, if it's the only copy I have, and price accordingly.

Oh, and I have several copies of many issues, so do ask if you want duplicates. When you register an interest, I'll put those copies aside for a few days while you make a final decision - please let me know before sending cash, so I can expect it.

Please note: I do keep the pages as up to date as I can, and I do check for accuracy - but I'm only human, so errors can occur. These details do not - unless confirmed by email - constitute a final offer or contract of sale, and should be construed as providing general information which requires confirmation.
