John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir (1875-1940) was a Scottish novelist of adventure novels and an author of many non-fiction books. Buchan served as the 15th Governor General of Canada. His most famous novel was The Thirty-Nine Steps, which was adapted into the Alfred Hitchcock film The 39 Steps. Buchan would feature that novel’s protagonist, Richard Hannay, in four other novels as a major character and two others as a minor character. Following his death in 1940, Buchan received a state funeral in Canada before his ashes were sent to the United Kingdom.

John Buchan became a published author with Sir Quixote of the Moors, published in 1895. His final original work was the non-fiction book The History of the First World War, not published until 1991. His final novel was The Long Traverse, published in 1941. Below is a list of John Buchan’s books in order of when they were originally published:
