    The Saint Detective Magazine:    (about)
    The Saint Detective Magazine was launched in Spring 1953 and initially 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 November 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.
