A minor magazine seems to have existed under this name in 1930-1931 (named "Scientific Detective Monthly", "Amazing Detective Tales" then "Amazing Detective Stories")  - From Cardassia with pain 20:55, October 31, 2010 (UTC)
OK. And.....what?--31dot 21:34, October 31, 2010 (UTC)
Interestingly, most of those titles were actual books, as in Peter Chamber's 1993 mystery The Big Goodbye, Edward Ronn's 1959 movie novel The Black Orchid (also a 1988 Susan Rubin family drama), Donald J. Young (2002) and Lucy Embury's (2005) contemporary fictions, both named The Listening Man, and Paul Lester's short story "The Parrot's Claw" (2000). The National Sheriff "is a periodical by the National Sheriff's Association which began its circulation in 1948."
Most of these were published after the episode (1988), so they're not really relevant or interesting. Given how many books are published in real life, I would be surprised if there weren't novels with similar titles.
For the two that precede the episode, we would need some reference saying that was the intended reference. Otherwise it's a bit of a stretch.--Cleanse( talk ) 09:02, October 24, 2017 (UTC)
