The Song of Stone
Iain Banks
1997
"The war is ending, perhaps ended. For the castle and its occupants the troubles are just beginning. Armed gangs roam a lawless land where each farm and house supports a column of dark smoke. Taking to the roads with the other refugees, anonymous in their raggedness, seems safer than remaining in the ancient keep. However, the lieutenant of an outlaw band has other ideas and the castle becomes the focus for a dangerous game of desire, deceit and death." (Quote from back cover blurb)
'The most imaginative British novelist of his generation'. -- The Times (quoted on front cover)

Stranger on the Square
Arther Koestler and Cynthia Koestler.
Edited and with and introduction and epilogue by Harold Harris.
1985
Abacus / Sphere Books, London, England, 1985. Paperback. 12mo. 242 pages with index. Photo illustrated covers. "In March 1983, the bodies of Arthur and Cynthia Koestler were discovered in their home at Montpelier Square. He was 77, she was 55. It was suicide: Arthur Koestler had been suffering terribly from Parkinson's Disease and leukaemia. Cynthia, his second wife and former secretary, had devoted her life to him and now seemed to have sacrificed them completely. Among Koestler's papers, Harold Harris found a manuscript. It was the third unfinished volume of Koestler's autobiography, written jointly with Cynthia, and covering much of their life together. Its pages revealed an extraordinary symbiotic relationship which explained Cynthia's sucide decision which shocked so many of her friends and associates."
