Peter Cave cover gallery 2

This is the second part of the Peter Cave cover gallery, covering Peter's novels published anonymously and under pseudonyms. There are also some non-fiction books under his own name and the pen-name J. D. Sheffield (a name you might recognise from some of his NEL novels). This is a bit patchy because some of the books have disappeared from sight since we moved house
