Sometimes your desire for the work of a particular writer, or genre, is so strong that only an omnibus edition will suffice. What better than a single volume that contains three novels or perhaps four?
Omnibus editions are common in the mystery and science fiction fields, and Gollancz is probably the publishing king of omnibuses, but this selection of meaty books covers the entire spectrum of reading from golf to sailing to John Steinbeck and Kingsley Amis.
The work of prolific writers - such as a P.G. Wodehouse, W.E. Johns and Rex Stout - are frequently packaged in omnibus editions simply because itís a convenient way for avid readers to devour their writing. Value for money is guaranteed.
