The Handheld Classics are new editions of fabulous forgotten fiction and lost authors, with introductions by experts and astonishingly useful notes.
The Handheld Research books bring you stories from scholarly research, in plain English.
Our Handheld Modern list presents excellent modern fiction from living authors. (This list is no longer being developed, but our Moderns are still very good.)
Our books are stocked in bookshops worldwide: please ask your local bookshop to order what you want, and check their shelves as well.
You can also order from us! We post orders to the UK, USA and Canada on the next working day, and all our books are in stock at the office. (We can also post elsewhere in the world: just ask.)

The Gap in the Curtain
John Buchan was a stealth writer of supernatural fiction in amongst his thrillers (The Thirty-Nine Steps) and his historical novels (Witch Wood) (actually, that’s supernatural too). The Gap in the Curtain (1932) was his last supernatural novel, in which an Einsteinian mathematician trains five guests at a country-house weekend to see one year into the future. But what will that knowledge do to them? And what will they do with what they now know?
We are delighted to be able to offer our gift cards – perfect presents for every reader. More details.
