"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!
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
Strongly recommended from what I've read so far is 'Sick Heart River' the last Leithen story. The characterisation is strong, the writing and description is beautiful and by the time of writing it his racism has receded to a rather naive belief in stereotypical national qualities. This doesn't detract from the story.
Google his name and you will see what a rich and varied life he had. Yet he found time to write and, though he is from a different age, he speaks to all ages. He has no equal because he is in a class of his own.
I am currently reading the novel "The Courts of Mourning" (Richard Hannay) and I am very disappointed that this book is absolutely riddled with errors from the very start. There are so many typos that the novel is almost unreadable. There are punctuation errors, missing words, grammar errors and frequently completely the wrong words.
I wonder what kind of book this is supposed to be? It is certainly quite unlike any book I have ever read before. It looks like it was typeset by an intoxicated 5 year old who could not speak English.
