It's all very well bringing in new readers, which, of course, is a good thing, but will they be disappointed when they open the real Swallows and Amazons and fail to find the aeroplanes and the spies? On the other hand another side of me says, "That's rubbish!" My own introduction to Ransome came when I opened a copy of Winter Holiday and saw the chapter heading "Signalling to Mars". "Fantastic!" I thought, "science fiction!" and settled down to read, only to be captivated in quite a different way. Fifty-four years later, I'm still hooked.
