Re: They Found Atlantis

I visited the British Library this afternoon and whilst there I checked the Daily Mail serialization of They Found Atlantis and the missing words were there. The Daily Mail, Saturday, 22 February 1936, page 18: "You can well imagine this twice-yearly period of duty in the mines was dreaded by our pe...

Christopher Lee DW Audio Books

I see that Audible have finally made Christopher Lee's readings of TDRO and SC available via their service - www.audible.co.uk. About time too - I have them on CD but who listens to them anymore? They are the classic readings of the Duke de Richleau by the actor that played the Duke de Richleau and ...

Re: Dennis Wheatley Podcasts

Hi Folks, There is a really enjoyable podcast with Mark Gatiss talking about Sherlock Holmes, Christopher Lee and a lengthy discussion on Dennis Wheatley. Gatiss is asked "What are the books that saved your life?" He answers "Great Expectations, Treasure Island, Sherlock Holmes" and then mentions th...

Re: New Member Introduction

Hi Steve - and a belated welcome from me. Thank you for joining us. If you have followed the library for awhile you will know that activity ebbs and flows. We are going through a dry patch currently, but there will be times when discussions are vibrant. The General Topics page is the main area for d...

It is coming to Bath, UK, 8 Feb - 6 May 2019. https://britishart.yale.edu/exhibitions/george-shaw-corner-foreign-field To accompany th...

Re: The 2018 Convention

Well things do come at the last minute to spoil plans. Even I now won't be available on Friday night until about 9pm, so won't make The Fishery. You are quite right there is not many on Friday, Ken. I haven't booked the Fishery so that yourself, Mary, Bill and Anna have the independence to decide wh...

Great. I'm game.

Shall we say 7.30pm? I'll book.

Anyone else wish to join us?

Re: The 2018 Convention

The Three Horseshoes https://www.threehorseshoes.info/ This was a wonderful place when the old landlord Gary was running it. Good beer, great steak and friendly locals- all happening in a wonderful building that had been serving ales for an uninterrupted three hundred years. Unless things have gone...

Re: The 2018 Convention

Hi Folks, There was some discussion last year about changing the Friday night format to have an evening in a traditional pub that serves meals and, in particular, real ales. If some are staying elsewhere but nearby this year then this might be a reasonable option. Last year Shane suggested the Cat a...

Re: The Old Man Said - the find of the century!!!

The front cover of The Old Man Said typescript has " Fully corrected Copy " hand written at the top (I originally misread it as collected ). The typed note has "Folio II, Pages 312-591", so I obviously conclude that pages 312-591 is contained in that file. Now that we know it exists - we will have f...

The Old Man Said - the find of the century!!!

Dennis Wheatley's memoirs have always raised mixed emotions for me. He spends 3 volumes and a further 228 pages of a fourth volume on the first 47 years of his life - and it makes riveting reading - but only 37 pages for the last 33 years!!! 1944-1977 is the time when he wrote most of my favourite b...
