Join our campaign, led by actor Dominic West, to bring the writing of George MacDonald Fraser to a new generation. Witty, irreverant and historically enlightening, we think the Flashman novels are a the best introduction to the boy's own adventures of yester year and we are determined the adventures of Harry Flashman should be enjoyed by the uninitiated.
Launched by Hollywood actor and avid Flashie fan, Dominic West, the campaign will run for the duration of the sale of George MacDonald Fraser's Library at Heywood Hill.
Buy any George MacDonald Fraser paperback or gift box online or in the shop and you will be entered into our Grand Prize Draw to win:
- The Heywood Hill Complete Works of George MacDonald Fraser paperback giftbox (worth £200)
- Three-volume facsimile edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica from the Library of George MacDonald Fraser housed in a wooden presentation box (worth £200)
