Hi everyone

First of all, like everyone else here I am a great fan of Wilbur Smith books. I've read all I got hold of so far. I think I miss 5-6 books right now but I have placed some bids on different sites on the Internet so pretty soon I should have them all. I just wish I found this forum earlier! I just found out that "The train from Katanga" is the same as "The Dark of the sun". Now I haven't read it (them) but I just ordered both of them so now I just hope the Katanga book will keep its value as a rare book! It wasn't cheap.

Hello roben. Welcome to the Forum.

I had forgotten about the alternate name for The Dark of the Sun. It's strange that it's not mentioned on Wilbur's own site. He does mention the alternate names for:

Wild Justice which was also published in the US as The Delta Decision but is now available again as Wild Justice; and
A Falcon Flies which was also published in the US as Flight of the Falcon.
(This information is found under the "You asked" section.)

Good luck with your search for the rest of your unread Wilbur Smith books and I hope The Train From Katanga does turn out to be a collectors item for you.

Sweden......that's even colder than Canada. Don't worry Wilbur will keep your heart pumping on the cold winter nights.
