The original audiobooks
These are the two audiobooks published by Clipper Audio in 2006 and 2007. On Angel Mountain is on 11 cassettes and has a listening time of 15 hours, and House of Angels is on 16 cassettes and has a listening time of over 18 hours. The recordings (using Jonathan Keeble and Leanne Masterton as the readers) are pretty good, but the marketing of them was appalling, and I am still completely mystified as to why they used paintings of Sicilian landscapes on the covers of both the packages! Apparently they did CD versions as well, but although they were supposed to have sent them to me as the author and copyright holder, they never did. Now they have neither any cassettes of CDs left, and the two audiobooks have dropped off their catalogue. I am trying to sort something out so that these versions can be re-issued, but I am not that hopeful...... watch this space.

Martha Morgan's Little World (the companion volume)
The many fans of Mistress Martha Morgan and the Angel Mountain novels will be delighted to know that there is a companion to the first five books of the series and a guide to “Martha Morgan Country”.
Brian says that the book was written and produced in 2006 as a response to many requests from readers for background information on the people, places, social history, symbolism, and traditions featured in the stories. In addition to all of that, he included more personal material relating to the inspiration behind the stories, his writing process, and the practicalities of self-publishing historical fiction. There are also summaries of the Saga's publishing history up to 2006, a selection of reviews, a section condensing all the story-lines, a full character list, and a list of all the diary entries in the first five novels.
The book was intended for those who have their own theories about what is what, why people behave as they do, what the links are between the stories, and what interpretations might be placed upon certain associations and events in the heroine's life. So it is a sort of reader's guide which might even be used as a study aid -- given that certain schools are now using the book in the context of Welsh literature. In a way, the author also sees the book as an attempt to remove some of the mystique that might be associated with the process of writing fiction, and he aims to set up a three-way dialogue between Mistress Martha, the author, and the reader. Isn't that over-ambitious? "Not really," says the author. "Martha has her say in all five of the early novels, given the diary format which I have employed. Sometimes her words need to be interpreted or analysed, since she is not always entirely honest in what she writes! Readers have given me a host of questions, and now here are my answers."
The star of the new book, as indeed of all of the novels of the saga, is Mistress Martha Morgan of Plas Ingli herself. "Of course this is an in-depth look at Mistress Martha and her world," Brian says. "But it is much more than that, since it is also an affectionate portrait of a very beautiful imagined -- and real -- landscape, incorporating more than a hundred colour photographs." The book is an A5 hardback, designed to sit alongside the novels of the Saga in the bookshelf. It also has a stunning jacket, designed by Brian's son Martin to provide a link between the Greencroft and Corgi editions of the novels.
