Works

I am currently working to scan all of Peter's work and it will be available here to download in PDF form.

If you have copies of any works I don't have then please get in touch if you would allow me to create a digital version.

Almost all of Peter’s work is out of print, though books can often be bought from antiquarian booksellers.

 

I am missing the works in red.
