The Three Mosquitoes Checklist

Between August 1927 and January 1939, Ralph Oppenheim’s “The Three Mosquitoes” appeared sixty-five times in nine different pulp magazines. The stories varied widely in their style depending on which magazine Oppenheim sold the story to.

Some, like “Roaring Motors” (War Stories, May 24, 1928) were typical WWI aviation stories. While others, like “The Magic Inferno” (Dare-Devil Aces, April, 1932), had zany mad scientist type plots.

In their last two appearances (Sky Fighters, November 1938 and January, 1939), they even changed wars. They moved to WWII China to take on the pre-Pearl Harbor Japanese invaders.

Here is a list of The Three Mosquitoes stories compiled from Leonard Robbins’ The Pulp Magazine Index that also appeared in The Three Mosquities: The Wizard Ace.
