#1–5 were reprinted in Stories by Famous Authors Illustrated #1–5

Fast Fiction presents one-issue illustrated adaptations of famous works of literary fiction.

As an example of the series, issue five presents the story of “Beau Geste” by P.C. Wren. A major in the French Foreign Legion discovers a fort in North Africa manned by dead soldiers, propped up at their posts. Attacking Arabs would not have left the fort in such a state, so what is the story behind this mystery? And how is it related to the three Geste brothers, and the theft of the Blue Water, the world’s most priceless sapphire?

Other issues contain work such as the spy story “The 39 Steps” by John Buchan, the adventure-filled “Scarlet Pimpernel” by Baroness Orczy, and the mysterious “She” by H. Rider Haggard. Fast Fiction offers famous stories “streamlined for action.”
