I have more proof that the Internet is a very small place. I received an interesting email about a week ago from Desmond Bagley's sister-in-law and she told me a few things about Mr Bagley and also that several of his novels are being re-released in England in 2-books-in-1 format.
The most interesting thing she told me, and if I had read the Wikipedia post about Bagley I would have already known, is that his final two novels--Night of Error and Juggernaut--were left unfinished at his death in 1982 and both were finished by his wife. She declined the publishers offer of a ghost writer, and she really did a great job. I read Night of Error in the early-1990s and I enjoyed it. It's too bad she didn't choose to write a few more titles on her own. She obviously had the knack for it.
