Adventure Books

John Buchan (1875 - 1940) is most famous for The 39 Steps, which is one of the Richard Hannay quartet. Of the other three, Mr. Standfast is just okay, while The 3 Hostages is a skip. The remaining one is Greenmantle, which I read for the third time or so a couple years ago.

Also in the Haggard tradition is Lionel Davidson (born 1922). The Rose of Tibet is okay, but The Night of Wencelas is a rocker and so is The Menorah Men.
