Pulps dedicated to crime and mysteries were among the first specialized pulps to be published. DETECTIVE STORY had its first issue in October 1915, and MYSTERY MAGAZINE by 1917. By the 1930's, crime pulps (if you include super-detective and crime-fighting hero pulps) were almost synonymous with "pulp" in the American mind.
