One of the writers who, probably more than most, introduced me to South African fiction,when I first arrived, was Geoffrey Jenkins.
Geoffey wrote about Southern Africa and he enthralled me with stories like 'A Twist of Sand ','A Grue of Ice'  'Scend of the Sea ', and so on.Very South African although his books were published in the UK there was nothing political about them.Just pure adventure !. Pure adventure which was very believable.
He was of course married to Eve Palmer, also a writer of note.
I have noted a new trend in book collection by people in South Africa and Geoffrey Jenkins has featured ,particularly, his signed copies. Certainly he was a very willing author signer at book launches here in South Africa. I have quite a good collection , both signed and unsigned. For your guidance I am listing some of his titles. I will be pleased to assist any collector in finding those elusive titles;-

A Twist of Sand

The Watering Place of Good Peace

A Cleft of Stars

A Grue of Ice

Scend of the Sea

Hunter Killer

The River of Diamonds

The Unripe Gold

A Bridge of Magpies

A Ravel of Waters

South Trap

All my books are in good condition and will have ther dust jackets.
