In Memory of Peter

I am Andrew Pool, Peter’s step-brother.   By arrangement with Audrey Pool’s Executor I have become Peter’s Literary Executor and have set up this website to his memory and as a source of his work.

I own Peter’s copyrights.  Most of his work is no longer in print, so, I am creating PDF versions of all his work.   Once each is completed I will upload it here.   My collection is growing but unfortunately is still incomplete; if you have any that I'm missing please get in touch..
