Angels and Others

The collected short stories of Shots’ very own ‘Ripster’ have now been unleashed on an unsuspecting world.

Published by Telos, Angels and Others contains thirteen short stories  (1988-2015), six of which feature Mike Ripley’s most famous creation – Fitzroy Maclean Angel – including a brand new one, plus the (unfilmed) script of his 1994 novel Angels in Arms.

Twice winner of the CWA’s ‘Last Laugh’ Award for comedy crime and described by The Times  as “England’s funniest crime writer”, Ripley authored 15 ‘Angel’ books before  going straight and trying his hand at historical fiction and novels which continued the adventures of Margery Allingham’s Golden Age detective Albert Campion. His latest novel, Mr Campion’s Fox, is published by Severn House whilst his Angel books are being republished by Telos, with Angel in the House appearing in August.
