I'm in the land ov very slow dial-up and will be away from the computer most of the day, but I wanted to reprint a comment from JJH on the Victor Canning post. Sounds like a worthy project to me. Here's the comment:
Glad to see Victor Canning getting talked about again. He wrote some much better books than Doubled in Diamonds. Try Firecrest or Birdcage or The Finger of Saturn. I have reviews of all his books on my web site, www.victorcanning.com, and am trying to get as many as possible back in print in time for his centenary in 2011.
