Ernest Hemingway's novelette, The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, was first published in the combined issue of Hearst's International and Cosmopolitan (later Cosmopolitan Magazine) in September 1936. The original issue included the mastheads of both magazines at the top of the cover. The Hemingway story was later published in the compilation The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories later that same year. Hearst's International - Cosmopolitan was published in New York City. The Short Happy Life tells the story of would-be big game hunter Francis Macomber, who is "accidentally" shot in the head by his wife, Margot, while hunting buffalo in Africa.
