Baroness, if you're sticking with Dick Francis I have all of them up to middle 80s at least - can post them down if you promise to return them! I undertook upgrading my father's paperbacks to the hardbacks, and have the originals here as a consequence. Let me know!

Wow thanks bebop that's an incredibly kind offer. I am quite enjoying the searching at the moment but I suspect there will be one or two that completely elude me and then I may well take you up on that. I would of course look after them and return them - I may even be able to send you some of the later ones too if you were looking to build a complete set?

I'll keep looking and reading those I already have in the meantime but may come back to you in a few weeks if that would be OK? Thank you so much again for offering. :-)

Ugh, there was a horrid bit in the Piers Paul Read book last night, not for the squeamish! The main character is a psychopath. All very odd though it's still good somehow.

No problems, Baroness - I'll check the date of the most recent so you know what's available. Thanks for the offer of the later ones, but my parents have the complete works so I can always borrow one if I want to re-read. :-)
