I have only read a few of them, and think that White
and Mallory stand so far above the others that they
are insignificant in comparison (apart from the Monty
Python version). I listed them all for the sake of
completeness and in the hope of jogging other's
memories. There were a few there that suprised me, and
many I'd never heard of. I doubt if I've read more
than a tenth of the books listed (which must by now
number over 200)
