3/2/1929 The Saint goes short

March 2, 1929.  The issue of The Thriller  with this cover date featured "Story of a Dead Man," by Leslie Charteris.  (And what a great cover!)  It was the first short story to feature his most famous creation, The Saint.  Simon Templar had already appeared in a 1928 novel, Meet the Tiger.  Since then he has appeared in movies, TV, radio, and probably Egyptian heiroglyphics.
