Favorite: Wild Horses
I have enjoyed reading by now, 25 books by Dick Francis. At first I started reading Francis because I also practiced a little bit showjumping, dressage and was generally very much into horses and horseback-riding, and Dick wrote about horses in a very vivid believable manner. Now the occasional Dick Francis book is my only tie back to my riding-days. But each new Francis-book I read brings back sweet memories with an interesting mystery-plot as a bonus.

As far I am concerned, Dick Francis has won the Grand National every year since I discovered his wonderful gift of writing. Cheers!

First visit at this Web Site. Looking forward to reading what others have to say about one of my favorite authors. Anyone know if Mr Francis is now retired? Planning another book?

Do you know the title of the Dick Francis book about the trnscontinental trip across Canada for horse races along the way; the character doing the solving is posing as a waiter on the train. I can find no reference to this book and I have forgotten the title. It was a great book and I would like to find a copy. I have copies of the rest of his books. Would appreciate any information. Thanks.

Hi, Lesta! The book you are asking about is The Edge.

On the listings of Dick Francis' books you have "Shattered" as his last book. Wasn't "Twice Shy" released in 2001? Have there been any new books released since then? Thanks, Robin

Adore Dick Francis books, keep rereading them and am relieved to see I am not alone in this pleasure. They have so much to admire in the characters vitality, honesty, humor. The language is descriptive yet the plot never slows. A master writer.

Hi, Robin! Twice Shy was published in the early '80s (M. Joseph, 1981; Putnam, 1982).

I orginally read Dick Francis from a Reader's Digest. I fell in love with him. He is the first author that I made an effort to own all the books. It is fun to see how his writing evolved over the years. Going from very, very good to great. I have stayed up many a night finishing off a book, even though I've read them all, several times. Sometimes, if I'm in need of comfort, only a Dick Francis book will do. The hard part is choosing which one. Eventually, I would like to get them all in hardcover.

I would like to thank Mr. Francis for all the enjoyment he gave to my late father. He had all of his books, and read them more than once. On his death in 1998 they were left to me. I have continued the collection as tribute to both my Father, and Mr. Francis.

It is with great sorrow I heard of Dick Francis' retirement. But today I got the last six books to complete the set. I now have all of his 38 novels. Also his "Sport of Queens". I am now on the hunt for the three books that are not part of his series....Fix the National" ... Spring Fever" ... and "The Beast of Exmoor" Thank you, Dick Francis for your wonderful books!!!

I've read at least half of Mr. Francis' excellent books on the Turf. Did want to say I really liked the adaptions to TV done by the BBC too (if that's who did them)

I have all of Mr. Francis' books - and re-read them (all) at least once a year! I've been reading his books for well over 10 years now - and would give anything to actually be able to meet some (or all) of his characters! (Sigh.....)

This is my first visit to this website & I am happy to see a lot of fans are avid Francis book collectors & rereaders as myself & my oldest daughter. I decided to look up information about Dick Francis on the internet after I finished reading Hot Money for the upteenth time. A friend gave me a Dick Francis novel in the mid-1980's & I've been hooked ever since.
