There is no third volume yet. The prospects for one seem dim...see previous posts on this subject.

Has the author ever written or intends to write the third Volume in the Hieros journey series?

Yes, I have both books for sale.
"The Peculiar Exploits of Brigadier Ffellowes" book that I've was printed in 1977 in Great Britain by Sidgwick & Jackson Limited. It has 159 pages, is in mint condition, and has the following stories:
"The Kings of the Sea", "Fraternity Brother", "The Leftovers", "Soldier Key", "A Feminine Jurisdication", "His Only Safari" and "His Coat So Gay".
"The Curious Quests of Brigadier Ffellowes" is a mint condition, first edition of ONLY 1200 copies, SIGNED book by Sterling Lanier and the artist, Ned Dameron. It was printed in 1986 in the USA.
This 254 page book has great illustrations, an introduction by the publisher, Donald M. Grant, and a fore/thought/word by Sterling Lanier himself, and has the following stories:
"Ghost of a Crown", "And the Voice of the Turtle", "A Father's Tale", "Commander in the Mist", "Thinking the Unthinkable", "The Brigadier in Check -- and Mate"
Regarding my prices for these books, I respectfully suggest that a proper internet search (This site prevents me from mentioning the most successfull search engine but it rhymes with "doodle") will provide you an idea of their value. With that being said, I'm willing to listen to (a) reasonable offer(s).
Thank you for your interest!

You mentioned having both of the Ffellowes books for sale...do you still have them?

I'm intrigued that the second Fellowes book is as recent as 10 years old. I always thought Unforsaken Hiero was S. Lanier's last published work.

War for the lot is about a number of animals getting together with a child and defeating the evil rats which wish to take over the wood known as the Lot as their rubbish dump is being invaded. IMHO The Brigadier books are worth checking out - about a chap who goes on various quests to various places, solving problems. The 2nd one is comparitively recent, written ten or so years ago.

What's "The War For The Lot" about?
Are the Brigadier Fellowes books worth checking out? They were both written before Hiero, right?
Thanks in advance.

hey gang....just reread both hiero books for the 37th time since 1981...made me want to connect again... while still hoping that maybe, just maybe, the "HUBBLE" might yet find a copy of the third installment of hiero's story somewhere in the great distances of our universe, i take solace in the fact that i am not alone in my enjoyment and love of these classic books....I haven't heard anything of Mr. Lanier for several months so i was wondering if our friend from australia might know of any news of him....please inform....PER ARDUA AD ASTRA....robert

This is a "dove tail message". I've also managed to acquire both of the Brigadier Ffellowes books as well (Curious Quests and Peculiar Exploits), albeit not signed but in perfect condition; morever, I'm preparing for a cross country move this Summer and I'm willing to sell them. If anyone is interested, I'm prepared to listen to offers. Thought I'd test the waters here prior to going the online auction route.

Well, starting off with Hiero's Journey almost some 25 years ago (thanks to Gary Gygax's reccomendation) I've got The Unforsaken Hiero, Menace Under Marswood (which I'm reminded by every time I watch Total Recall). In the past few years or so I've managed to get both of the Brigadier Ffellowes books (one signed) AND The War For The Lot. They're all great books. Yes, I've always felt that more Hiero books would have been great too.
Just thought I'd share my experiences with you. [Copernic's Book Search helped me find them].
