Author Search




Enter the author's surname followed by the forename or initial(s).

    e.g. Porter M or Porter Michael or Rowling J K

Then click the Search button or hit your Enter key.

If you wish to limit your search to a particular type of stock such as DVDs, use Advanced Search.


If you either do not know the forename or there isn't one - for instance, if you are looking for books by SAKI or an album by Queen - just use one name.

Remember, it helps to give a forename or initial if the author's name is a common one, e.g. Smith, otherwise you will get a long and not very helpful list of matches, up to a limit of 200 results.

If the author you want is not displayed, try using KEYWORD SEARCH adding other words from the title, series or subject of the item you are searching for.
