The Killing Joke (Orion)
Anthony's first adult novel is the story of an out-of-work actor trying to find out where jokes come from. Some people loved it. Some people hated it. It's certainly very different to all the other books.
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON



Granny (Walker Books)
A very early book inspired by Anthony's truly repulsive grandmother - a child-hating monster with secret plans to live for ever.
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON



The Switch (Walker Books)
This is a body-switch story - and it's one of Anthony's favourites. Rich, spoiled Tad Spencer swaps bodies with petty criminal Bob Snarby. Murder and violence follow.
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON



Groosham Grange (Walker Books)
A school on an island that teaches magic. A boy with magical powers living with unpleasant relatives. Heard it all before? This one was written first!
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON

Return to Groosham Grange (Walker Books)
The second book in what was meant to be a series. 13-year-old magician, David Elliot, fights a mysterious villain who plans to destroy his school.
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON



Horowitz Horror (Orchard Books)
The first collection of very dark, occasionally funny stories including the extremely bloody “Bath Night” and “Killer Camera”.
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON



More Horowitz Horror (Orchard Books)
More disturbing and frankly irresponsible story-telling. Includes “The Hitchhiker” (see if you can guess the end) and “The Shortest Horror Story Ever Told”.
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON



Myths and Legends (Kingfisher)
This was an attempt to tell all the old stories of gods and heroes with a bit of humour, a bit of blood and a lot more fun.
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON

The Sinister Secret of Frederick K. Bower (Arlington)
It might be worth a bit if you can find a copy of this out-of-print book. Anthony's first novel, written when he was 22. It's about a multi-billionaire 13-year-old…
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON

Misha, the Magician and the Mysterious Amulet (Arlington)
Terrible title, not very good book. Also out-of-print…fortunately. This was Anthony's second book, written when he was 23. Well, we all make mistakes.
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON



The Devil's Doorbell (Methuen)
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON

The Night of The Scorpion (Methuen)
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON

The Silver Citadel (Methuen)
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON

The Day of the Dragon (Methuen)
AVAILABLE FROM AMAZON

Again, these books are very rare and all out-of-print (although you can still get them in French). They're a horror/fantasy series that Anthony wrote a long time ago. There were meant to be five but he never finished them.

However, Anthony has gone back to them recently and used some of the same ideas for the Power of Five series.
