Finally put the site on it's own domain! Welcome to CraigThomasCompanion.co.uk.

I have been corresponding with Chris Moore, one of Craig's cover artists and he tells me that he has a number of his original Craig Thomas illustrations for sale. If you are interested then you can contact Chris via his website, www.chrismooreillustration.co.uk.

I've taken the opportunity to add a lot of missing cover images to the site, mainly of American covers by Bantam and Harper. I intend to add more of the missing covers as time permits. Some of the new images can be seen below.

Time for another site redesign! I've changed the look of the front page and all 18 novel pages so far. I have also updated the characters page after Howard got in touch to remind me that Tony Godwin appears in Slipping into Shadow.

I've just discovered the sad news that Craig Thomas died on 4 April 2011 from pneumonia following a short but intensive battle with acute myeloid leukaemia. Here are a few links to some online obituaries.

I was a little bit shocked to read this news as Craig has remained my favourite author since I started reading his books in the 1980s.

Lately his books appear to have been out of print so I think it would be a fitting tribute if a publisher would reissue Firefox.

My thoughts are with his family and friends, especially his wife Jill.

Added some new cover images for the US paperback of Moscow 5000, the British hardback of Sea Leopard and the "overseas edition" of Winter Hawk. Many thanks to Graham for taking the time to scan them. I do like the US cover for Moscow 5000. Some of those Bantam covers from the early 1980s were very nifty!
