The book with the stories of the Italian War hero's. A very thick book.

That's not possible. Unless it's writing is nothing to do with the title

In no particular order:
The Iliad - Homer
Odyssey - Homer

The first two and the last one are readily available in China, not seen the others though

I am a big scifi fan and so is my step dad. He has been raving all his life about the lensman series, any idea where to get them as I haven't seen it in shops anywhere?

And is it as good as he says?
You know that every time I try to go
Where I really want to be
It's already where I am
'Cause I'm already there
