Stefan is one of the most experienced and prolific non-fiction authors in the country and as well as contributing to practically every major national newspaper and magazine, he has written around sixty books, including several standard works of reference. His classic Guide to the Pests Diseases and Disorders of Garden Plants written jointly with Dr Keith Harris is now in its fourth edition, over forty years after the first.
Among Stefan’s other major gardening and natural history works are Fauna Britannica with a Foreword by the then Prince of Wales – now King Charles III – which described the entire wild animal life of Britain, Garden Natural History, a volume in the world renowned Collins New Naturalist series, and more recently, Collins Fungi Guide, the most comprehensive one volume guide to the fungi of Britain and Ireland ever published.
Perhaps less well known is Stefan’s work and interest in socio-political biography – his highly acclaimed Churchill study ‘Churchill & Chartwell’ was described by the International Churchill Center in Washington DC as ‘…a thoroughly indispensable standard work, as important for the library of any serious Churchill student as the memoirs of close associates’.
