Notes / Commentary: "With only six exceptions, the stories in the new series are all new; and for some reason or other, perhaps to infuse new life into a slowly dying business, the authors also, for the most part, are camouflaged as new. The only previously used name among them, except those given as authors of No. 43 — a reprint — is Charles Morris. Perhaps the reason his name appeared is that he may also have written some of the stories in this series under a pseudonym as well. Of the remaining names, some have definitely been determined to be pseudonyms of regular Beadle authors; thus Edward L. Wheeler's reprinted stories appeared under the name Edward Lytton, William G. Patten masqueraded as William West Wilder, T. C. Harbaugh as Major S. S. Scott, Arthur C. Grissom as Albert Cecil Gaines, Prentiss Ingraham as T. W. King, and William H. Manning as Marcus H. Waring. Among the remainder, not a single one is known to be real, and it is more than probable that they are all pseudonyms of regular Beadle contributors. Here appeared for the first time the names of Robert Randolph Inman, Redmond Blake, Frank Fort, Edward Gaines Burnes, and T. J. Flanagan, but it is very unlikely that Beadle, at this late date, was taking on any new writers. Writing for Beadle, besides those mentioned above, there still remained the old crew, Badger, Jenks, Cowdrick, Albert Aiken, Eyster, Whitson, and Leon Lewis, and it is probable that among these and the authors previously mentioned are to be found the true names of the unknowns."--Johannsen, A.
