In Memory of Peter

I am Andrew Pool, Peter’s step-brother.   His Literary Estate passed from his widow Audrey to her nephew Graham Grist on her death.   Graham resolved to find someone who had the time, inclination and ability to do justice to portraying Peter’s life and work, which I agreed to do on receipt of the gift of the Literary Estate.
Most of Peter’s work is no longer in print so I am creating pdf versions.   Once each is completed I will upload it here.   My collection is growing  but unfortunately still incomplete; if you have any I’m missing, please get in touch.
