Algy Fails to Return
The Von Kurtmann squadron have moved in on the opposite side of the Lines. Taken to hunting in packs, these German pilots are picking off lone British pilots left and right. Things come to a head when Algy fails to return from his dawn patrol. Has he been shot down by the Huns? Will he fight his way back to 266, or is it already too late?

The Boob

“The Boob” (Biggles, Pioneer Air Fighter) will forever remain the best short story of the WWI era, as it’s the story where Algy Lacey makes his first appearance in the Biggles series. The original story was written from Biggles’ perspective, but for those of you who just can’t get enough of Algy, here is the same story, told from Algy’s perspective.

Christmas Spirit

A patrol on Christmas Eve—the perfect way to get a taste of cold weather. But as if things aren’t bad enough, Algy’s engine has failed over the German side of the lines, and there’s a German soldier getting ready to shoot him. Join Algy in this seasonal tale, and see if he gets to make it home in time for Christmas dinner.

The Dare

It’s always a bad idea to sneer at Algy Lacey, but it’s an even worse idea to make derogatory remarks about his flying. Read on to find out what happens when Algy visits Aerodrome 31—a Hun aerodrome with a hard-earned reputation as the most dangerous place in France…

Nervous Flying

The demand for new pilots in late WWI was so high that it was not unusual for pilots to arrive at a squadron with only ten or fifteen hours of flying experience. After that, it was mostly a combination of fast-learned skills and incredible luck that kept them alive. Novice pilots could hardly be blamed for doing all the wrong things at the wrong time, but as Biggles and Algy are about to find out, sometimes ignorant pilots are not only a danger to themselves, but also to others…


It’s Bonfire Night and Biggles and Algy are doing some night flying to drop bombs on a German aerodrome. However, the Huns have been informed of their arrival and are waiting for them. It looks like there are going to be some fireworks…


The new pilot posted to 266 seems to think he knows everything...and he's not too proud to take credit for other pilots' kills either. It's easy to see that this is one person Biggles and Algy aren't going to like too much...

The Wager

A new Hun is in the sky making a nuisance of itself, and Biggles and Wilks have made a wager as to who will be the one to bring it down. Biggles is determined to finish the job on his own, but clearly he’s forgotten to factor Algy into his well-laid plans…

Biggles Gets Stuck In A Jam

Biggles is sent forty miles behind the Lines to pick up a package, but it may not be as easy a job as he thinks it is...

The Pocket Watch

When Biggles is mysteriously sent a pocket watch with no explanation, he naturally has to investigate.

Algy Flies Alone

Algy is on his own on the wrong side of the Lines and faced with an unusual opponent...

All Hallows' Eve
It's All Hallows' Eve, and Algy Lacey has never been one to let war get in the way of having a bit of fun...
