Begun in 1910 as a way for publisher Ridgway to tap into a new market, it specialized in stories of danger and thrills.

Its creation was a logical response to the success of pulps like ARGOSY, which by 1910 were selling hundreds of thousands of copies of each issue; but the focus on adventure was something new.

In the beginning, SHORT STORIES was a small magazine that published literary short stories, often translated from other languages. By the 1914 it had become a pulp magazine, generally featuring an action scene on its cover. A SHORT STORIES cover from its glory days is immediately recognizable from the iconic red sun that from 1917 was always found in the background. For many years it published two issues a month, but went to monthly publication with the April, 1949 issue. In the 1950's it...
