My version of ENTER THE SAINT (paperback, Fiction Publishing Co. New York) only contains The Policeman with Wings and The Lawless Lady. But it does have a nice 3 page intro from Charteris.

Had you considered running your guide by story rather than book? You could have a "Published in.. section".

I had just started putting together a guide for my own use to keep track of characters and references to other adventures - but I'd be more than willing to help out with your site,

All the best,

Tony

yeah, i have been kinda distracted. It started just as a list of the books, then i thought about trying to go through them to figure out where the main caracters first appear and try to pick up the facts so i could finish the other page on the saint someone else started. To do this i started going through the books and making notes and thought may as well put them in a synopsis. But my lack of enthusiasm for essays and the wish not to give the whole plot away had tempered my interest.

I have two copies of Enter the Saint, one which is lacking a cover so i can't be sure of it's origin but is in a similar sytle to other saint books published by Hodder and Stoughton 1950's era. The other is Everyman Paperbacks, J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd, 1983. Both contain all three stories.

This is just why I started putting together my list.

Apparently a lot of the USA paperback editions have been "cut about a bit" with odd stories removed - sometimes to make a extra "novel" or just to keep the page count down.
