I've read all of them but have to say the the ones by his son go a bit bat-shit

crazy.

One thing I did notice was that there was quite a difference between the UK and US editions of the original. I bought my copy when I was in the states in 1979. When that started to fall apart, I bought a copy in the UK. When I read it, something jarred so I went back to the US edition and found that whole paragraphs had been re-written, sometimes there was a least an extra page difference between editions. My quick assessment was that it seemed that quite a bit of waffle had been edited out of the UK edition.

Phil.

p.s. there are six brick-sized sequels too.
