The Adventures of Richard Hannay & Short Stories by John Buchan

Richard Hannay is a modern knight errant. Charging through a hypocritical world, he is a seeker after truth with a boundless love of nature, a liking for simple pleasures and a hatred of pettiness and snobberies. In this marvellous collection we see Hannay grow from the bored colonial ex-engineer of The Thirty-Nine Steps, via the extraordinarily ingenious and resourceful spy who penetrates the Turkish hinterland in Greenmantle, into the world-weary yet still determined and heroic brigadier general of Mr Standfast. The five novels – The Thirty-Nine Steps, Greenmantle, Mr Standfast, The Three Hostages and The Island of Sheep – trace Richard Hannay’s life from his first encounter with espionage and war up until his later life as a man of means and title.

This superb collection comes complete with the uniformly bound Stories. These eighteen stories were all published between 1896 -1932 and were selected from the three volume set ‘The Complete Short Stories’ published in 1996.
