    Could you please let me know if you will do any more of the audiobooks?

      Dear Matt,

      Many apologies for the delay in replying. We are not aware of any immediate plans to produce more audiobooks. However, a television drama series of Alexander Wilson’s life from the point of view of his third wife, Alison, is in production and it is possible increased interest in his story and writings in the UK and USA will generate demand for more audio versions of his novels. In addition, he wrote many more novels than the Wallace of the Secret Service collection, and it may well be the case that some of these will be re-published. Sincerely and respectfully, Tim Crook.
