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.
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you would like any information on his work, or alternatively if you have copies of any books I am missing. I would also be pleased to learn of any articles Peter has written.
