Pulp -- Detective Fiction Weekly -- February 7, 2021

This issue of Detective Fiction Weekly features a novelette about The Saint, a suspected criminal who steals from bad guys and solves crimes. Leslie Charteris wrote countless novels, novelettes and short stories from 1926 to 1963. The stick figure is The Saint's calling card. 

The Saint appeared in print, on radio and television, in movies, and in a comic strip and comic books. Charteris wrote many of the scripts for the radio and comic strip adaptions. He also wrote a play, which has never been staged.
