Fuller's first novel is Our Endless Numbered Days.

One of the author's top five extreme survival stories, as shared at the WHSmith blog:
Alive, the story of the Andes survivors by Piers Paul Read. And, again it’s a true story from 1972, I remember it from when I was five. And a Uruguayan rugby team crash in the Andes on a flight and there were 45 people on the plane and I think about 16 survive. They have to go through awful things to survive and you just put yourself in that situation and it’s horrendous and you wonder whether you would actually be able to do it yourself.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Alive is among Ed Douglas's ten most courageous tales of survival.
