The first-ever biography of Nigel Balchin (His Own Executioner: The Life of Nigel Balchin by Derek Collett) is still available to buy. The book is available in two formats: paperback (ISBN 978-1-78132-391-5; RRP £11.99) and ebook (ISBN 978-1-78132-392-2; RRP £4.99).

There are several ways in which you can purchase the book, including via major online retailers such as Amazon, Book Depository,
Blackwells, Waterstones, etc. In the UK, it is also possible to go into any bookshop and place an order for a copy.

As of November 2019, the cheapest way to obtain a copy of the book is to buy it direct from the author via Amazon Marketplace at the super-low price of just £4.99. I will then post you a signed copy of my biography, together with a free second-hand paperback copy of one of Nigel Balchin’s best novels. Don’t delay too long though because I only have a small handful of copies of the biography left in stock. Follow this link to place an order:

NB. If you live outside the UK and would like to purchase a copy of my book then please email me via the ‘Contact’ page on this site. I will then give you a quotation for sending the book to you at cost price. Unfortunately, the very low postage credits given to me by Amazon prevent me from selling books overseas on Amazon Marketplace.
