The Complete Peanuts 1981-1982
- Hardback - Canongate
'The Complete Peanuts' marches into the 1980s as Snoopy's brother Spike is drafted into the Infantry and a second brother, 'Marbles', takes his bow. Also in this volume, Peppermint Patty witnesses the 'butterfly miracle', Sally gets fat, Charlie Brown's team loses its baseball field, Linus is still not Sally's 'Sweet Babboo', more Beagle Scout adventures with Snoopy, and Molly Volley and 'Crybaby' Boobie return for a rematch.
The Complete Peanuts 1983-1984
- Hardback - Canongate
This volume of 'The Complete Peanuts' is particularly romance-heavy as the Charlie Brown/Peppermint Patty/Marcie triangle heats up; love blossoms between two of the 'Beagle Scout' birds; and Linus is still not Sally's 'Sweet Babboo'! Meanwhile, Charlie Brown becomes, in his worst baseball-related humiliation to date, a Pelican - and Snoopy's brother Spike is still stuck in Needles, surrounded by coyotes, with a cactus as his only friend.
The Complete Peanuts 1985-1986
- Hardback - Canongate
'The Complete Peanuts' reaches the go-go mid-1980s with this volume: 'mallies', 'punkers' (Snoopy with a mohawk!), killer bees, and Halley's Comet. The gang go to 'rain camp' and 'survival camp', the World War I Flying Ace comes down with the flu, Charlie Brown poses for a swimsuit calendar, Peppermint Patty gets a crabby tutor plus Molly Volley, the unbearable, licensable 'Tapioca Pudding', and plenty of Spike and his cactus!

- Paperback - Vintage Classic
Melding his native Irish sensibilities to those of his adopted west-coast Scotland, these tales attend to life's big events: love and loss, separation and violence, death and betrayal. But the stories teem with smaller significant moments too - private epiphanies, chilling exchanges, intimate encounters.
