So ... can anyone tell me the order these stories go in?
Mr. Pump's Legacy
Destination New York
Valley of the Cobras
The Secret Ray

The order of the books is (as far as I am aware) :

1. The Secret Ray ('The Manitoba No Reply' & 'The Eruption of Karamako')
2. The Stratoship H.22 ('Mr Pump's Legacy' & 'Destination New York')
3. The Valley of the Cobras

The first two stories were split into two books when published; 'The Valley of the Cobras' was a single-volume story.

Hergé abandoned the characters after completing 'The Valley of the Cobras', meaning they are the only books featuring Jo, Zette and Jocko.

Anyone know where I can get copies of the two 'Secret Ray' books. in the UK? I know they were published here a few years ago. The usual story, saw them in a shop, decided to return a week later to buy them, never saw them again. Mutter mutter mutter.

My copy of these stories is one book called "The Secret Ray", which I got from the Tintin Shop in London about seven years ago. That's probably the best place to try, though when I was last there I didn't notice whether they had copies available or not. Good story, definitely worth getting! The ISBN is: 0951279955 - good luck!

Keep an eye on eBay, but 3 that were on sale recently shipped to the US only, unfortunately.

did you contact the seller? often they will ship internationally if you ask them ... shipping a book to the UK for example is not difficult but can be annoying (dealing with the post office) ...

What Gordon says works some of the time. That very same seller he mentioned shipped The Secret Ray and Pocket Essential Tintin to me here in Australia! Very nice of him! You just have to ask to have it shipped there. You also have better luck with this method if there are no bids on the item.

French books tend to list the Stratoship stories first, before the others.
