The Saturday Evening Post

Always featured fiction from the output, often short tales or serials reprinted from other publications.

First golden age was in the late 1840s-1850s when it published (often pirated) leading US and UK writers, including Charles Dickens, Ouida, G.P.R. James, Diana Mulock; declined after Civil War and remained a cheap story paper until bought by Cyrus Curtis in Aug-1897.

Curtis revamped the magazine and circulation grew from 2,231 in 1897 to 726,681 in 1907 and over 2 million by 1922. Artist Norman Rockwell contributed 323 cover paintings, 1916 - 1965.

Authors include Mary Roberts Rinehart, Clarence Budington Kelland, Arthur Train, P. G. Wodehouse (early "Jeeves" stories appeared in the Post first, followed by British publication in The Strand), Conan Doyle ("Maracot Deep" 1927), Morgan Robertson, Stephen V. Benet ("The Devil and Daniel Webster" 24-Oct-1936), Heinlein, Bradbury, C.S. Forester, Gerald Kersh, John Christopher.

Circulation rose from 315,000 in 1902, to 2.7 million in 1933, and almost 3.9 million in 1948.

Note: The latest incarnation seldom publishes fiction, but does run some short light-hearted stories.
