Newly Found and Published DES books

Old DES Books Newly Republished

new editions




The twenty-first century was well under way when DES's granddaughter found a stash of old manuscripts and unpublished novels. Greyladies, a publishing firm that delights readers by republishing long out-of-print novels, have brought the books, literally found in the attic, for the first time to the waiting world of DES readers.

These books can be ordered from the exclusive US distributor Anglophile Books

DES is Gaining a Whole New Generation of Readers

Starting in 2008, publishing companies have been reissuing vintage DES books, delighting both new readers, and long-time fans who can now complete their DES libraries.

Anglophile Books

Anglophile Books started the trend by reissuing The Empty World (1936) a long-out-of-print and very rare book, followed by a collection of DES's poetry Alister and Co.

Anglophile Books also carries a tempting array of other DES books
