"The Weekly Star"

For a brief period, The Star Newspaper Company, from their offices in Stonecutter Street, published The Weekly Star. This version of the newspaper, which came out every Saturday, was larger than the daily edition but similar in overall layout and design. The Weekly Star lasted from February 1892 to January 1894, and although it was a short-lived publication, a number of novel-length serials and short stories were printed during its lifetime. The checklists below include the entire fiction contents of The Weekly Star. Please note that no fiction appeared in the paper after May 1893.
