Davison later compiled a handful of writings—including letters, an obituary for H. G. Wells , and his reconstruction of Orwell's list —into Lost Orwell: Being a Supplement to The Complete Works of George Orwell , which was published by Timewell Press in 2006, with a paperback published on 25 September 2007. In 2011, Davison's selection of letters and journal entries were published as George Orwell: A Life in Letters and Diaries by Harvill Secker.  A selection by Davison from Orwell's journalism and other writings were published by Harvill Secker in 2014 under the title Seeing Things as They Are .
