Request for Fans of the Wheatley Occult Novels

Hello there I've been a big fan of Dennis Wheatley since I first read the Haunting of Toby Jugg at twelve, and since retiring from the Fire Service I've started to write myself. My stories are a series of supernatural thrillers, published by the American company Damnation Books, and are coloured to ...

It isn't Wheatley, but...

Hello there I've been a Dennis Wheatley fan my entire adult life, starting at around fourteen, and always had a particular love for his supernatural works. I've also just begun to bring out a series of novels myself - paranormal mysteries - and the first of these has the very definite flavour of goo...
