Actually, the indexer whose work I quoted thought that HOMICIDE became (I think CRIME & JUSTICE and KILLERS were supposed to be the same magazine at different times, too. These folks didn't make themselves too easy to track!)

"Homicide Detective Story Magazine" published only one issue--September 1956, which had the rather nice contents that included a John D. MacDonald story and one by William Campbell Gault.

"Homicide" was published by Everett M. Arnold, Arnold Magazines, Inc., 1 Appleton Street, Holyoke, Massachusetts; editorial offices 303 Lexington Avenue, New York 16, New York. It said it was a bimonthly.

And guess what, "Homicide Detective Story Magazine" became "Killers Mystery Story Magazine" with the same addresses in Mass. and in NYC. Cook lists the

contents for the January 1957 (#3) and March 1957 (#4) issues which makes me

think there was a November 1956 issue (#2) of either "Homicide" or
 The contents of the two issues do not equal the first but includes stories by Talmadge Powell, Edward D. Hoch, Joseph Commings, Charles Fritch and Henry Slesar.

"Terror Detective Story Magazine" Four known issues from October 1956 to April 1957. Published by Arnold Magazines, 1 Appleton Street....editorial offices 303 Leington Ave. NY 16, NY. Another sister publication of Homicide, Crime and Justice, and Killers. Stories by Fredric Brown, John Jakes, Edward Hoch, Harlan Ellison and Robert Turner.
