Action Stories was a multi-genre pulp magazine published between September 1921 and Fall 1950, with a brief hiatus at the end of 1932.
As an adventure pulp, it did not feature the horror and science fiction of other pulp magazines. Instead it focused on real-world adventure stories. At first mostly westerns but branching out into sports fiction, war stories and adventures in exotic countries in 1937.
A British reprint published by Hutchinson & Co. ran from April 1923 to January 1928.
In 2007 replicas of the original pulp magazine are available from publishers such as Girasol Collectibles and Adventure House.
