Martin Woodhouse (1932-2011)

Thriller writer Martin Woodhouse died in May but the obituary I penned for the Guardian only appeared on Wednesday this week (and posted online on Tuesday). The paper only used one small cover as an illustration, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to post the four that I sent over.

Sad to hear this. By the way, any reason why Moon Hill and Phil and Me never were issued in paperback form?

I don't think either of the books were paperbacked in the UK or the USA but I haven't a clue why.
