2013 - The Saint is Back
Another card carrying member of this club is Simon Templar AKA The Saint, that gentleman rogue created by Leslie Charteris when he was just twenty years old.
There's a lot happening in the world of The Saint at the moment with the character being at his most active in many years - not only is there a new TV series currently filming, (well a pilot at least but here at the Archive we have faith it will go to a full series) but the original books are being reissued by Hodder & Stoughton on their Mulholland Books imprint. The series of reprints,both paperback and eBook, are being put together under the watchful eye of series editor, Ian Dickerson and each book will feature and all new introduction - I've written the intro for one of the reprints though I'm not sure yet which book my intro will appear in, but rest assured I am deeply honored to be included.
So if you are new to the Saint or simply want to replace those battered old paperbacks then now is the perfect time to get down with the old stickman.
Expect a full review of The Saint Closes the Case on the Archive later this week.
