Desmond Bagley: Bibliography and bonus cover gallery

(* I'm running the cover gallery/bibliography in reverse order so that I don't have to repost it... the main gallery will appear tomorrow.)

In 2009, Harper published a series of eight "2-in-1" omnibus editions, the covers of which I've appended to the following bibliography. Most (if not all) of the books contained additional stories or features by/about Bagley.

Bagley also wrote one short story as Simon Bagley, which I don't think has ever been included in any bibliography of his work previously.

I did really did like the sequels 'Running Blind' and 'The Freedom Trap'. I reread them once in a while.

Bagley's style of writing is much different from his compatriots like MacLean and Innes.

I really would like to read his short stories.
