Following the publication of many short stories in Scribner's magazine, the Saturday Evening Post, the Ladies' Home Journal, and a collection of them titled Contact and Other Stories (1923), Hart became famous for Pulitzer Prize-winning The Bellamy Trial (1927), which was serialized in the Saturday Evening Post, published in book form, and later dramatized. According to Julian Symons, the original publication of this book marked the start of serialized novels replacing short crime stories as commercial articles.
