Piers, Very excited and pleased to hear that you are hot on the trail of publishing some of MLW manuscripts. ebook format could be very good - Over the past couple of years since I have retired I have travelled quite a bit and found the convenience of using an ebook reader for novels. I still much prefer the printed format to technical, history or illustrated works and the seems to be the same for many people I talk to. Good luck - I have my credit card ready :-)

Yes that's good news - would love to be informed when you are able to publish A Broken Square...

Thats brilliant news, ebook is a great format although I do have all his published books already but I would love to have them on my iPad!

I have recently been in conversation with the director of a large publishers, with a view to bringing Mike's 'back catalogue' back to life on E-books and also- publishing "somewhere out there" and " Broken Square" I met him in London last week, and it could be a matter of months before his books are republished and you can for the first time- buy his new books. Rhodesia- is a more complex beast as it requires a collaborative effort to finish, and would need a Zimbabwean military author ideally. We're on the hunt. Very exciting, I will keep you updated. All the best, Piers

Hi guys, I love the books written by Mike LUNNON-WOOD, and I am sorry to hear of his passing. I am trying to complete my collection of his books. As I have moved with the times, I now have an iPad, any suggestions as to where I can get his books as ebooks?

I am late posting here but such is the nature of Internet forums that the get "discovered" constantly. MLW books are superb. If ever the was a tribute to the Scottish (or was it British) Coast Guard then "Let not the deep" is it. For years I have scoured bookshops for his books and it is only this week that I realised that he passed away in 2008 - Not only a tragic loss to readers but a loss to the planet. If his family has unpublished works that would be wonderfull if they were able to be put into print.

Great to hear that we may get some more books from MLW. He is up there with my favourite authors of all time.

Thanks for the update. Will you post to this site if you are successful in getting any of the books published?

Hello all. It has been a while since I have posted on here. As I may have said, I am in possession of complete works "Somewhere out there" and "Broken Square" the former about a disbanded team of ex Selous Scouts and RLI who are commissioned privately to hunt down and retrieve three British students kidnapped and held to ransom in the Zimbabwean Bush and the later I shall keep to my chest for a while.
Rhodesia as I have said is heavy work. 14 completed chapters, pages of unedited notes, but a sound structure and largely complete, my uncle and Mike's twin brother Mark is now in custody of the manuscript and he plans on writing the end of the saga. I am now in talks with Harper Collins and Random House regarding the posthumous works and even about a republish of some of the older stuff.
A fourth work exists. "Storm Bringer" it is in hard copy, covered in dust after it was shunned by publishers in the early eighties. A seemingly dark and menacing foray into the world of black magic.
Thanks Everyone. Piers
