Spicy-Adventure Stories was a monthly pulp magazine published by Culture Publications based in New York, USA.
It ran from July 1934 to December 1942 for a total of 95 issues.
It contained adventure stories of a risqué nature and the covers reflected this, featuring nearly always a scantily clad young maiden in some form of jeopardy.
N.B. From late 1935 through late 1937, most issues appeared in two different versions - one un-censored and the other self-censored. The censored version was identifiable by a star within a box located at the top of the cover. The interior illustrations were typically 'toned down' in the censored versions e.g. lingerie drawn over a topless female, and some even had variant contents.
Due to censorship issues the title was cancelled and was changed to the more acceptable Speed Adventure Stories, featuring tamer stories. This was published as a Bi-Monthly from January 1943 to January 1946 for a further total of 18 issues. It had two different publishers during this spell, Trojan Publishing and Arrow Publishing.
