Yes good point. I should look into that again. I've got away with a proxy server outside Australia in the past.

It seems strange though that I can get some but not others in such a random pattern

Everything before this fine then:

Gently to a Sleep (1978) OK
The Honfleur Decision (1980) [Gently Under Fire] Nope
Gabrielle’s Way (1981) [Gently Heartbroken] OK
Fields of Heather (1981) [Gently in the Past] Nope
Gently Between Tides (1982) ) OK
Amorous Leander (1983) [Gently with Passion] Nope

Yes, it's annoying when that happens. I've had the same issue myself with other series. At one point, for example, seemingly random books in Elizabeth Peters' "Amelia Peabody" series weren't available in the UK (although all now are).

Thanks Apache. So that one seems to be missing for anyone in the US but available in the UK.

That probably does indicate that a different publisher holds the non-UK rights.

Gently Under Fire is not shown on Fantastic Fiction. What number book is it? Obviously that's not the original title and I cannot find it in any reading order lists.

As I noted in post #33 above, it's the 26th book in the series, originally published as "The Honfleur Decision".

This name changing is rather annoying.

Only for people who knew the books under their original titles, which I suspect is rather few these days. Alan Hunter isn't a very well-known author today.

But if you look up the reading order, not all the book in all the lists have had the name changed. So then you don't know the new name or you need the old name and you don't get that. It's just annoying.

Gently Between Tides (1982) ) OK
Amorous Leander (1983) [Gently with Passion] Nope

Those three seem to be available to me now (Australian credit card address) on the US website now. I don't know when this happened as I check sporadically by publication date and go away if I don't see a recent publication date. But these seem to show with whatever date they were published as an ebook probably on the UK site last years which interleaves them with others I've bought.

So I think we have these to go ???

The Unhung Man (1984)
Once a Prostitute (1984)
The Chelsea Ghost (1985)
Goodnight, Sweet Prince (1986)
Strangling Man (1987)
Traitor's End (1988)
Gently with the Millions (1989)
Gently Scandalous (1990)
Gently to a Kill (1991)
Gently Tragic (1992)
Gently in the Glens (1993)
Bomber’s Moon (1994)
Jackpot! (1995)
The Love of Gods (1997)
Over Here (1998)
Gently Mistaken (1999)

I do hope we get the remaining books at some point. It's been more than a year since the last release, which is a touch concerning.
