3 thoughts on “Crack of Doom

  1. Actually, it was the third of five novels. Here are the U.K. first editions:

    Sangoree (Jonathan Cape, 1932)
    All Night at Mr. Stanyhurst’s (Jonathan Cape, 1933)
    Crack of Doom (Jonathan Cape, 1934)
    Helen between Cupids (Jonathan Cape, 1935)
    Macaroni (Geoffrey Bles, 1938)

    “Macaroni” must be a really rare volume; there are no copies currently available at Bookfinder, and the only library copy I’ve been able to locate through online searches is in the Bodleian Library at Oxford.

    I’ve read “All Night at Mr. Stanyhurst’s,” and it’s excellent.

  2. I can confirm what Patrick says, Hugh did write those 5 novels. I have signed first editions of all of them in my collection as well as what looks like a pre-print proof copy of Macaroni.

    Hugh Edwards was my great granduncle.
