about

Richard Hannay, the hero of 'The 39 Steps', returns as a member of ‘The Runagates Club’. 

The club is a 1930s London dining society for gentlemen and is made up of ex-soldiers who meet once a month to share tales of adventure from their many heroic adventures across the globe. 

Across a series of classic short stories, Buchan tells the adventures of many of the characters that make up the Richard Hannay series. 

Richard Hannay tells of a trek in the African bush and of a madness called The Green Wildebeest. 

Henry Nightingale survives the Wind in the Portico. 

Oliver Pugh recalls how a German code was finally broken in World War 1 in 'The Loathly Opposite'. 

John Palliser-Yeates describes an ingenious Secret Service operation during the First World War. 

Sir Edward Leithen encounters an unusual opponent in a rainy park. 

And in "Skule Skerry", Anthony Hurrell encounters something dark and 
massive on a stormy island. 

From the African bush to covert Secret Service operations during World War One, these stories are sometimes comical, sometimes serious but always entertaining. 

‘The Runagates Club’ is essential reading for fans of Buchan, the original master of British spy fiction. 

‘These short and exciting episodes provide a rich escape into hair-raising events described in the dimly-lit comfort of intelligent companionship. For those readers familiar with Buchan's longer novels, this work provides an extra episode in the lives of the various heroes, which is satisfying to those who have become attached to the likes of Sandy Arbuthnot, Lord Lamancha, and Lord Burminster.’ - The John Buchan Society 

John Buchan was a Scottish novelist, historian and Unionist politician who also served as Governor General of Canada. He is most famous for his classic thriller, 'The 39 Steps'.
