More Relevant Other Reading

Sheila, returning from a visit to her family in Northern Ireland, brought me a copy of John Macnab by John Buchan. Buchan and Poul Anderson have in common:

conservative politics;
large outputs;
thrillers with interconnecting characters;
references to JW Dunne (see The Fourth Dimension).

For a comparison of Buchan with two other thriller writers, see here.

Some of Poul Anderson's characters would have fitted well into the hunting, shooting and fishing lifestyle of the Scottish Highlands as described in John Macnab.

Kaor, Paul!

Alas, I don't think I've ever read any of John Buchan's books. His works does seem interesting even if his stories has too many implausibilities to be convincing.
