The Saint stories as originally serialized

I'm a new reader/collector of the original Saint books and am seeking information on the original publication data of several of the early stories. For example, the second novel THE LAST HERO originally appeared in a British periodical called THRILLER in 1929 (according the www.saint.org website).

Does Burl Barer's book "THE SAINT : a complete history in print, radio, film, and television" contain such specific publication history?

Re: The Saint stories as originally serialized


I'm afraid I've never had the opportunity to read that book (it's fairly difficult to find and expensive), so I can't vouch for its information about publication dates.

Burl Barer has a blog of his own, so perhaps he would answer your question there: http://www.burlbarer.net/

Re: The Saint stories as originally serialized

Hi Carl,

My primary source of information is the Wikipedia article on Simon Templar, which lists all the books in publication order, with alternate titles. These publication dates are for the books, however, and not serializations.

The Internet Speculative Fiction Database (http://isfdb.tamu.edu) focuses on fantasy and science fiction. It does have a Leslie Charteris page, however, listing what appear to be the more "paranormal" Saint stories. It's nowhere near complete, since the Saint satories are less speculative than adventurous, but it may help you a little.
The ISFDB is extremely detailed, but Thriller is not included in its listing of publications. If you have other publication titles, however, it's worth a shot to search for them.

I guess this is the place to ask questions...

Can we add tags? It would be awfully handy to have a few basic tags - like reviews, movies, television, and links of interest. Maybe even a couple for novels vs. short stories. Would that be all right?

Absolutely! I have tags at the other communities I run, but getting them started up somehow eluded me here.

ETA: I've gone ahead and tagged all of the existing entries, since there are only two pages of them. Reviews have been tagged with the book's title, as well as a designation of either "novels" or "short stories". :)
