Mr. Francis,

I continue to enjoy your books as much as I enjoyed the ones from your dad and the ones from both of you. I think I have read all but the latest. I imagine you have a researcher who has been following this story but if not, I thought it might interest you.

A little constructive criticism of your grasp of jockeys. Having ridden and been around race tracks for decades I can tell you that riders are absolutely fearless and the toughest people on earth. Race tiding makes all other sports look tame. I just read your book silks and I can tell you that no one week kneed enough to be intimidated to the point the main character was could last long at any race facility at least here in the US and I donít believe our cousins across the sea are less than we.

I particularly enjoyed "Pulse" and would now like to read "Guilty Not Guilty" but it does not seem to be available in Australia.
Is it or will it soon be available here?

I just finished Gamble and wanted to encourage you to write another book about Nick Foxton. There are so many unanswered questions. Did Claudia survive? Did they have a family? What direction did his life take? What happened to all the accounts of his racing friends?
Iíve been reading the ďFrancis BooksĒ from the beginning and have loved every one. Thank you for carrying on the legacy.

I was brought up by a Dick Francis lover and own nearly all his books. Iíve just re-read Banker for the nth time. Like all good books I miss the characters for a while afterwards. Anyway, how about a book with Tim Ekaterin again? I want to know what happened to him!
Iíve also had all your books from the library btw, I just donít buy books anymore.

I just finished Pulse, and must say I loved the main character. It was refreshing to read about a character who is not perfect. I hope she may come back in a future book. Thank you for talking about issues honestly that many people face, and including a great story. Loved it!

HI
I have just finished reading Triple Crown which I very much enjoyed. However, on page 432, a BAD proof reading error has occurred. Suddenly Bob Wade is called Bob DEAN, your proof readers need shooting!

I would absolutely love to read another book about the character Kit Fielding who starred in Break In and Bolt. Would a follow up be manageable?

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Duty

The way I read a Francis novel:
Get it home. Put it on the dining room table. Look at it. Giggle that it is now mine to read. Make sure the house is in order so there will be no distractions. Make sure the dog has gone out and is fed. Make sure dinner will be ordered in so I can concentrate on the novel. Pour a glass of wine. Toast the book. Inhale the serenity that I will get from starting the novel. Sit in my favorite chair and begin...

Dear Mr Francis

I grew up with Dick Francis novels, they were among the first adult books I read as a teenager and now, in my fifties, I understand how much they have shaped my world and formed my life. I find myself quoting phrases from his books, explaining life through the concepts he expressed, understanding life through his principles of courage, fortitude and honour. I feel that he was one of my truest teachers and I will be grateful to him till the end of my days for giving so much to the world that was good and true - and exciting. His philosophy is a constant thread running through my life.

I wish I could have told him while he was alive.

Good day Mr. Francis:
I do enjoy the series of stories written by your late father and yourself; but am perplexed by one particular aspect of "Dead Heat" - I am curious as to how was Max Moreton managed to enter the United States without a passport? Presumably his passport was destroyed in his house fire.

Maybe some one can explain the above -

Thank you,
Vannette

Mr. Felix Francis: ***A note for your PAN Books in the event there is a "reprinting" of the novel RAT RACE.

Page 182

"Is it the right aircraft" is an error...

It should read: "It IS the right aircraft"

Respectfully,

Stirling Sturk

Your Father has kept me entertained for many, many years, and I hope you will continue in that vein.

Thanks.

Dear Felix,
I found out that Triple Crown is the title of your new book, out on the 22nd of September and that you changed from Michael Joseph to Simon and Schuster Ltd.
As I have collected all Dick

Mr. Francis, I have really enjoyed Front Runner and am looking forward to reading more of your books!!

Hello,

I love all your books and the books your father wrote. I have been able to buy e-copies of many of them, but some are not offered in that medium. Is there any way to buy e-copies of all the books?

Thanks,
Rich

I can not say enough about your books, also your Dad. I have read all the books your Dad wrote, and most of the ones you wrote. In a few pages I am into the story. Most times I get so mad at the bad guy I wish I would meet him.
I just finished Refusal, and it looks like you wrote 3 more since that book, which I will buy. I hope you keep on writing. Regards, Dick Smith

Felix- I just read Damage and would you please bop your American editors upside the head and tell them that if they are going to Americanize the text to at least be consistent. For example, "football" is changed to "soccer" and "in hospital" to "in the hospital", but they leave "flat" alone. One thing I like about reading books written by authors from the UK is to notice the differences from American usage. Great book otherwise, your mom and dad would have been proud of you.

I just finished reading Damage and I found it pretty engaging but was very disappointed in the ending - that Felix killed off the bad guy instead of leaving him alive to be processed by the justice system. It makes the book less pleasantly memorable for me and I do not know if I will want to read the next book as this is the third time Felix has killed or caused or allowed the death of the criminal. It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth as they say.
