What do you think?

  1. Wow, your list of the best 250 adventure books of the 20th century is full of great stuff. As a long-time expert on this stuff (self-appointed, but who isn’t?), I still find entries on your list that I’d overlooked. Keep up the good work!

    As an aside, are you aware that I’m editing and translating modern, contemporary English translations of all of Alexandre Dumas’s Musketeers novels? The first three volumes — The Three Musketeers, The Red Sphinx, Twenty Years After — are in print from Pegasus Books, with the fourth, Blood Royal, due later this year. When complete up through The Man in the Iron Mask, the entire series will run to eight volumes.
