Sir Patrick Moore

Posted by Paul A Brierley at 20:53 on 2013 Feb 26

I am getting a Kindle Fire HD this week-end. And I was wondering, whether any body knows of a source for e-books, by Sir Patrick Moore.I am particularly interested in buying his novels published in the 1950's plus other tomes, by the author.

Has anyone heard if a Memorial Service for Sir Patrick is being planned?I thought this might have been on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of his birth but that is just 4 days away now.Richard Miles

Paul - I can't see Kindle editions available for the early novels, etc. of Patrick. Amazon is not very proactive and even has yet to recognise that Patrick has finally left us. The UK is poorly served with Kindle editions of books: the U.S. has a much better deal in that they have many additional Kindle books than are available most other places.Richard

Thank you Richard.It is a shame, none off these stories have been re-printed.I have one of his stories. "Mission to Mars" which I found a jolly good read.
