Joe Balham and Ian Kennedy Martin Author Biography - Information About the Author
The Sweeney TV series novelizations by Ian Kennedy Martin and Joe Balham are both Hubin listed authors.
We've put them together as we presume book collector and reader interest is primarily in the series of books from the legendary and ground-breaking British TV show featuring John Thaw and Denis Waterman rather than the authors themselves.
Some of the books were published in hardback though not necessarily preceding the paperback, I wonder whether these were produced primarily for public libraries?
A couple of the books were published in America but most were not.
Whilst not overly expensive they're not easy to find in secondhand bookshops, easier online of course.
