The Restless Bones, by Peter Haining
“I have drawn on the large file of material I have collected over the years about events and experiences which are fantastic - but factual” wrote Haining in his introduction and I’m willing to take him at his word.

The Adventures Of The Black Hand Gang, by H. J. Press
The Galactic Warlord, by Douglas Hill
Star Wars and when I found this, in Rothwell Library, it seemed like the perfect book for me (plus I used to read a comic called Warlord).
Canadian writer Douglas Hill eventually wrote a quartet of tales about Keill (I could never work out if you pronounced it Keel or Kyle) Randor, the Last Legionary, with the first book in the series (a prequel) being published last - Young Legionary (1982), Galactic Warlord (1979), Deathwing Over Veynaa (1980), Day of the Starwind (1980) and Planet of the Warlord (1981).
Salem’s Lot, by Stephen King

Danse Macabre, by Stephen King
I wrote about it, for Jim Mcleod’s Ginger Nuts Of Horror site here.

Truckers, by Terry Pratchett
The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien
(Mark's note - I read The Hobbit at school but never really got into Lord Of The Rings. When the Peter Jackson film was released, David & I went to see it and then went back again and again, year after year, watching the whole series).
