Espionage Magazine May 1987

Espionage Magazine July 1987
The second issue of the reboot, Espionage Magazine Vol. 2 No. 7 July 1987

Excerpt from Josh Pachter’s memoir of working for Espionage Magazine from The Digest Enthusiast No. 7:

After eleven issues Espionage sales were not self-sustaining.

“So, after a four-month hiatus, Espionage was “reborn” in May 1987 in its spiffy new format [magazine-size, shown in the featured image], with the words First Edition prominently placed on the cover in big red capital letters. The issue contained an even dozen pieces of fiction (including a “Spy Classic” credited in the table of contents to Douglas Greene but in fact was introduced by him and written by the English Mansfield brothers and published in 1900 under the pseudonym “Huan Mee,” plus a lengthy excerpt from a novel by Warren Burke), and, to my surprise (and, I admit it, gratification), my name was the first of the four listed on the cover.”

The Origins of Espionage

Espionage Magazine No. 1 Dec. 1984Writer Josh Pachter recalls the start-up of Espionage Magazine in “I Spy” from The Digest Enthusiast No. 7. Below is an excerpt from his article:

“Editor/Publisher Jackie Lewis and Associate Publisher Jeri Winston were already involved in the industry, putting out (so to speak) a number of magazines that, by comparison, made Penthouse look like Highlights for Children. If Playboy was soft-core porn and Penthouse was a little harder, Jackie and Jeri’s sex digests were fucking dirty. Perhaps in an attempt to redeem themselves in the eyes of the Lord, they famously asked their father, who had staked Bob [Guccione] to $5560 when Penthouse was in its infancy, to help them finance a non-porno publication that would feature spy stories and nonfiction articles about the world of espionage.”
