I know the name Mavis Enderby from somewhere, but I've no idea where. 'Martin' is not exactly helpful :) and 'Old' Bolingbroke rings no bells at all.

Ladies?
Bonnie Sharpe, Minna Selig, Domina Miranda Nicoletta St. Clair-Levison de Moha.

8) - not "Blast off at Woomera" - has to be one of the later ones, Morrey Kant was the American on the team, wasn't he? I'm too lazy to go look out my books.

Hee! I'd just realised that I too knew those names. I don't think I've got any copies, though.

I *think* No.10 is one of the Allan Quartermain books of H Rider Haggard. Couldn't say precisely which one, though.

You're right but I am looking at a specific one because it's the first one I read.

5 is Time Enough for Love, and 8 is the Hugh Walters books -- possibly specifically Blast off at Woomera.

I think it's the one set on Guernsey, with the UFOs.

5 is Time Enough for Love, and 8 is the Hugh Walters books -- possibly specifically Blast off at Woomera. Or possibly Voyage to Venus.
