The Thirty-Nine Steps, Paperback / softback Book

The Thirty-Nine Steps Paperback / softback

Part of the Essential Gothic, SF & Dark Fantasy series

Paperback / softback


Richard Hannay, a restless hero, is set to show the integrity of the ordinary man who stands in defence of his country.

Buchan's terrific yarn excelled as a Hitchcock movie of the same name, and inspired all subsequent spy thrillers, including the much later incarnation of Fleming's suave James Bond.

The book plays on fears of invasion, and turns the simple view of good versus evil into a page-turning adventure for the ages. This edition also features the second in Buchan's series of Hannay adventures, Greemantle. FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and myth, fantasy and science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and robots, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies.

Discover a storehouse of tales, ancient and modern gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic.
