Leslie Charteris The Saint Meets the Tiger Introduction This reprint will probably bring great joy to a number of Saint fans who have been trying for some decades to get a glimpse of the very first volume of the Saga, a book which was never expected at the time to launch a series. It has been out of print for more years than I can guess at, and with no complaints from me. Personally I would have been very happy to leave it quietly in limbo: I was still under 21 when I wrote it, more than fifty ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint Returns Forewarning The genesis of this book is exactly the same as that of my last publication, THE SAINT ON TV. Therefore, to explain it to anyone who may have incredibly missed that epoch-making ops, I cannot do better than repeat the explanatory note with which it was prefaced: When, after many years of noble and lofty-minded resistance, I finally broke down and sold the Saint to the Philistines of Television, I fear that I must have added one more argument to the ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint and the Fiction Makers1 Foreword The history of this book repeats that of The Saint on TV and The Saint Returns. That is, it started life as a television scenario, not written by me, and not based on anything that I created except the character of Simon Templar. After its second draft I was allowed to make some suggestions, not all of which were adopted. However, in this readable adaptation by Fleming Lee who also worked on those other two I have availed myself of the ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint Abroad Foreword Our first three experiments in turning the tables on the television producers The Saint on TV, The Saint Returns, and The Saint the Fiction Makers having been tolerably well received, we have been encouraged to bring out yet another of these hybrid books that is, Saint stories which were originally created expressly for television, not by me, adapted for reading as ordinary fiction by yet another writer, and indebted to me only for the parentage of ...

Year of publication: 1980

Leslie Charteris Count on the Saint I The Pastors Problem1 1 The peace-loving, law-abiding residents of Upper Berkeley Mews had long ago become inured to the presence of their celebrated neighbour, though whether his decision to be domiciled amongst them was to be welcomed they had never quite decided. True, he added a certain glamour to that otherwise staid and soporific backwater, but on the other hand there was the ever present threat that he might one day bring his work home with him, so ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint and the People Importers1 Foreword This is another of those joint efforts which I initiated with The Saint on TV, and which were accepted well enough to be followed by three other titles of similarly mixed parentage. In this case, however, there are a few small differences. I first suggested the basic theme to Fleming Lee, who wanted to try his hand at a TV script. He worked out a synopsis, in which I made some suggestions, and which I passed on to the TV producers ...

Catch the Saint Leslie Charteris1 Foreword The time seems to have come when Simon Templar cannot plausibly go on being contemporary, or else too many literary detectives smarter than Chief Inspector Teal are going to be deducing his present age from the internal evidence of several stories in the Saga that were highly topical at the time they first appeared, and in which the Saint was irrevocably linked with certain historic dates and events. And awkward questions are bound to be asked about ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint and the Hapsburg Necklace1 I How Simon Templar dined alone, and was introduced to a cat 1 The restaurant of the Hotel Hofer in Vienna was called the Hofburg, presumably after the Imperial Palace of that name not very far from it. It enjoyed a certain autonomy of its own, for it was in a separate building from the hotel, although it could be reached from the latter without going out of doors. It was used as much by the general public as by the guests of the hotel. It ...

My authority for this statement is that all those which have been published hitherto were written up by Fleming Lee, who ...

Leslie Charteris Peter Bloxsom Salvage for the Saint Forenote After some thought, I am making a brief intrusion here, in preference to a footnote later. This offspring of the successive talents of John Kruse and Peter Bloxsom, whom attentive readers will recognise as seasoned veterans of the latter-day genre of Saint adventures, is linked with just one feature unique among these semi-pastiches with which I have tried to beguile you over the last few otiose years. Besides performing my usual ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint in Trouble I The Imprudent Professor Original Teleplay by Terence Feely Adapted by Graham Weaver 1 Simon Templar pushed away the remains of his lobster and ordered coffee and cognac. He turned his chair sideways to the table and crossed his legs with careful attention to the crease of his trousers. The brightly colored canvas of the awning overhead offered only token protection from the early afternoon sun, and he envied the customers in the restaurant behind him as ...

Leslie Charteris The Saint in Pursuit1 Explanatory Note Readers who have an uneasy feeling that they have read this new book before can relax again. They havent. But they may be recalling the plot of the original comic strip on which it is based, which was syndicated by the New York Herald Tribune between July 17, 1959, and January 7, 1960. Of course, I wrote that, too. L C I: How Simon Templar answered a Summons, and Vicky Kinian was observed. 1 It is a philosophical observation so profound as ...

Featuring The Saint By LESLIE CHARTERIS Chapter 1 1 THE LOGICAL ADVENTURE THE most exciting stories of the Saint come, it seems to me, from among his later exploits, from the days when he was working practically alone-although Patricia Holm was never far away, and Roger Conway was always within call at times of need. I often think that it best suited the Saints peculiar temper to be alone: he was so superbly capable himself, and so arrogantly confident of his own capability, that it irked him to ...
