I first read Prester John when I was about 14 and I was instantly hooked by John Buchan. I've now read and re-read most of his books over the years, but having the complete works on Kindle is like having a treasure chest which I can just dip into and read whenever and wherever I am. He is an intelligent master adventure story teller and I never cease to be totally entranced by his description of John Laputa dancing on a remote Scottish beach by moonlight, and then his description of the subsequent meeting in a cave in Africa. Most people only recognise 'The Thirty-nine Steps' but that is just one of his many excellent stories where right is right, good prevails over evil, and there is an innate pride in being British. Just love these books!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Collection 28 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
This is an extremely good collection from a very knowledgable publisher. I thought that one of their short stories was missing the last two sections and dropped them a note to that effect. Almost by return I got a lovely reply:

"The Watcher by the Threshold is one of Buchan’s most anthologised short stories and several versions appear in different editions. Our edition provides the original and rarer 1900 Blackwood’s Magazine version, which is shorter than later editions of the tale. It isn’t missing an ending, just short"

A quite brilliant response. Quite made my day!

5.0 out of 5 stars Master story teller 11 Nov 2013
By Petsim
Verified Purchase
One of the best fiction writers ever. He used his upbringing and overseas military action to provide brilliant thriller writing. These days some weak souls could see it as, at times, un P.C but his story telling still stands the test of time.
He died 4 years after Alfred Hitchcock's version of the iconic 'Thirty Nine Steps'. Although many changes I feel if Buchan had seen the film he would have approved.
You can follow a trail of Scottish writers who were influenced by their predecessors; Walter Scott>Robert Louis Stevenson>Arthur Conan Doyle(influenced by his tutor at Edinburgh Uni)John Buchan>Alastair Maclean then more up to date, the late Ian Banks,Ian Rankin, Kate Aitchenson ( I know she comes from York! )
Jekyll and Hyde, Ivanhoe, Sherlock Holmes., Richard Hannay, Rebus, Brodie etc iam sure an English Academic will disagree, I am only a lowly P.E Teacher

5.0 out of 5 stars Buchan is Best 22 April 2013
By Nike
Verified Purchase
One of the most effective Scottish writers of the twentieth century. His lyrical country descriptions and derring do adventures with amazingly romantic heroes and heroines, he lived Putin his own life when he became Governor General of Canada, as Lord Tweedsmuir.

By swanson

So far I have thoroughly enjoyed The thirtynine steps, The Three hostages, John Macnab, Sir Quixote of the moors, The power House but didn't enjoy "The path of a King", Expect I will enjoy the others in due course but I'm a slow reader and have other books that I will have to read first. Although a Scott myself I found a lot of Scottish vocabulary that the dictionary has no entries for

4.0 out of 5 stars What a writer 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I always enjoyed this writer but he is considered a bit old fashioned and jingoistic. This collection of stories shows just why he was so popular, but maybe its an age thing.

It is nice to have all his fiction in one book but at the same time it makes it difficult to navigate.
