So what's the latest?
Please comment here and let me know of anything you've heard about the Saint in the new millennium. The Saint was in books in the 1920's, on film in the 30's, radio and film and books and magazines in the 40's and 50's. Roger Moore came along in the 1960's. Ian Ogilvy covered the 70's. Simon Dutton in the 80's, and Kilmer in the 90's. What's coming up in the 00's?
Using Blogger technology I have created The Saint's Blog at www.saint.org/blog to make it easier for multiple people to post news and rumors about The Saint and to allow all the Saint fans to comment on the posts! I think this will certainly be a lot easier to maintain than the manual text editing I have been doing since 1995 -- I apparently was blogging before it was even called blogging!
I will be converting all the news and rumors from 2004, 2005, and 2006 into this new blog format, and the rest of the news from previous years will remain in it's current archive and accessible.
Many of the Saint books by Leslie Charteris are long out of print, and hard to find. The Advanced Book Exchange (ABE) is a great resource for finding those rare titles that are still missing from your collection! You can search thousands of bookstores around the world all at the same time. It is a really great site.
If you like The Saint by Leslie Charteris, there are a number of other series that you might like that are in the same genre of the modern-day Robin Hood or Gentleman Thieves. I have put together an updated list of Suggested Books about Gentleman Thieves that I think you will greatly enjoy!
