Though it was never spelled out the end of the Danger Man series on TV ended with an abduction, I think, then The Prisoner started, implying a continuation. I have not stock-checked the titles below, but I think I know where they are.

CALLAN

I remember watching the first two series as they were shown (pre video), the time when “anti-heroes” came into vogue. I thought Edward Woodward was super cool, then he did that ridiculous American series and managed to be a big enough drip to get burnt in a Straw Man.

I have two hard back first editions, both with water damage, one much worse than the other, thankfully the rarer book is in better condition. A Magnum for Schneider, which I have just watched on YouTube, the damage is a slight wrinkling to the dj, the book has no faults not clipped and no inscriptions. Death and Bright water has extensive repairs to the cover and the dj is stained and has bits of the flap missing.

Because of the condition of Death and Bright Water I am giving that free with the other book, it is available on line from £15 upwards. I am asking £50 for both books. Please ask me any questions if you are interested.

Dennis Wheatley

I Thought I had a good collection of his works, I knew he was prolific ( not John Creasey or Michael Moorcock prolific but prolific just the same) over 70 books. I do have, paperbacks, hardbacks, hardbacks with dust jackets and some 1st editions (one signed) in stock, mostly at £2.50 each but a few at £5.00. I have highlighted titles I have in stock in red on the bibliography below.

Dennis Yates Wheatley (1897 – 1977) was an English author whose prolific output of stylish thrillers and occult novels made him one of the world’s best-selling writers from the 1930s through the 1960s. His Gregory Sallust series was one of the main inspirations for Ian Fleming’s James Bond stories.

Born in South London, he was the eldest of three children of an upper-middle-class family, the owners of Wheatley & Son of Mayfair, a wine business. He admitted to little aptitude for schooling, and was expelled from Dulwich College. Soon after his expulsion Wheatley became a British Merchant Navy officer cadet on the training ship HMS Worcester.

During the Second World War, Wheatley was a member of the London Controlling Section, which secretly coordinated strategic military deception and cover plans. His literary talents gained him employment with planning staffs for the War Office. He wrote numerous papers for the War Office, including suggestions for dealing with a German invasion of Britain.

Dennis Wheatley died on 11th November 1977. During his life he wrote over 70 books and sold over 50 million copies.
