  • More hilarious 'Doctor' antics. Gordon soon discovers that a busy gneral prctitioner needs a wife as much as he needs a stethoscope.  As his friend Tony tells him, "The patients donm't like you messing about with their wives unless they know you've got one of your own at home."  Gordon's only worry is that the right girl will turn up!  She does, he proposes, is accepted and soon comes to the conclusion that a couple who can survive preparations for their wedding day can pretty well overcome anything in their married life.

The experience, though grim, has been a bond between the two women. Then Martie experiences an irrational fear of her own. She feels a brief, disquieting fear of - her shadow. There is something twisted in it, something not right. Other anxiety attacks ensure until Martie finds she is the victim of the rarest of all phobias known: autophobia, fear of oneself. Martie's life changes radically and her future looks dark.  Her husband Dusty loves her and is desperate to understand the nature and cause of her autophobia. But as Dusty comes closer to the terrible truth, he begins to exhibit symptoms of a psychological disorder, even more unusual and terrible than that which afflicts Martie.
  • Fields was the kind of an actor that only comes along once in several lifetimes - a comic genius and an original anti-hero, cantankerous, pompous and ribald.  Here he lays out his proposed presidential campaign with biting wit: his views on politics, big business, marriage, babies, physical fitness and alcohol. A classic Fields comment: when asked if he liked children he replied, "Yes - but only if they're properly cooked." This is vintage Fields and his only book.

  • Hijackers representing a a Palestinian faction take over an airliner flying between New York and Frankfurt. But nothing is straightforward...they find they must consider one particular group of passengers who may well identify with their cause - The Barramatjara Dance Troupe on their world tour.
  • The sequel to The Guns of Navarone. Keith Mallory, Andrea and Dusty Miller are parachuting into war-torn Yugoslavia on a mission to ostensibly rescue a division of trapped partisans. In fact, it is to convince the Germans that a major Allied assault on Yugoslavia is imminent and thus draw troops from the Italian front.  Helped - and sometimes hindered - by a trio of Commando sergeants and a blind folk singer and his sister, the three need all the courage, darling and special techniques to accomplish their dual objective.
