The magazine’s subject matter ranged over a number of genres, although it tended somewhat towards men’s adventure stories, particularly in the waning years of the publication when the vogue for hardboiled fiction was strong.

The Popular Magazine touted itself as “a magazine for men and women who like to read about men.” The magazine had its headquarters in New York City.

The Popular Magazine was published by Street & Smith and edited by Henry Harrison Lewis from 1903 to 1904, and Charles Agnew MacLean from 1904 to 1928. A typical bi-monthly issue usually ran from 194 to 224 pages. In October 1931, The Popular Magazine was merged with another Street & Smith pulp, Complete Stories.
