Saga [1935]

Total Issues: 5?

Subtitled "The Adventurers' Magazine", Saga featured "exciting stories of true adventure". Although Lowell Thomas was credited as the editor, this was a purely honorary position as a favour to the publisher, who was a friend of Thomas - the actual editorial work was done by Daniel Edwin Wheeler (who was billed as Associate Editor).

The magazine ran as a pulp for five issues and then was relaunched "as a smooth-paper book", although details of the latter version (if it ever appeared) are currently unclear.

The Saint Detective Magazine

Total Issues: 141

The Saint Detective Magazine was launched in Spring 1953 and published a story in each issue featuring Leslie Charteris' Saint, after whom the magazine was named. The title was changed to The Saint Mystery Magazine from Nov-1958 and to The Saint Magazine from May-1966. The new name didn't last long and the magazine folded in October 1967 after a very creditable 141 issues.

The Saint (Detective/Mystery) Magazine (UK)

Total Issues: 60+80=140

The first series (1954 - 1959) is unusual because it is actually "published" in Australia for distribution in the UK. It appears that most of the issues are identical to the issues of The Saint Detective Magazine (Australia) except that the issues are dated two months later (to allow for shipment to the UK, the volume numbering is changed to match the policy of the UK distributor, the covers are overprinted with "British Edition" (and the new date and UK price) and there are minor textual changes to the wording on the Table of Contents.

Note that the last two issues in the Australian series were not reprinted in the British series, although most of the contents appeared in later issues.

Initially a reprint of the US edition (with variant contents) but later published original material.
