    Short story collections (UK)

    Farley, Walter – UK Printings

    Many of us will know the paperbacks of the Black Stallion series, which were published in various editions by Knight, starting in the 1970s.

  • Keir, Christine

    Keir, Christine

    About the author Christine Keir was a pseudonym used by Christine Pullein-Thompson. As far as I know, she only wrote one book under this name: The Impossible Horse.
