Peter O'Donnell, Modesty Blaise

Oh, yes, very cool! The partnership in particular, like Callan and Lonely only functional and not predicated upon violence. I must find the film.

I followed the strip in the London Evening Standard over some twenty years, and it was marvellous fun. From what I've read about the film, it's rather disappointing.

You seem to get through an incredible number of books and to have very eclectic tastes. Perhaps this is as good a place as any to recommend to you Mary Gentle's Ash: A Secret History and 1610: A Sundial in a Grave. It's hard to categorised them: not exactly fantasy, not exactly SF, I suppose "alternate history" comes closest. Whatever they are, they are enormous fun, very clever, and satisfyingly long (unlike with King, there is no sense of padding).

I thought the film might not have been great, otherwise there would have been more of them.

This is a backlong of four months' worth of reading, it just seems a lot all at once. Thank you for the recommendation: some good friends are real fans of Mary Gentle, and I keep meaning to get round to her.

That's one of the more inspired typos. :)

:-D I'm claiming it's because of my sore finger!
