The Dennis Wheatley Museum- The Final Years

I would just like to say how much i enjoyed this section, as this would be around the time i started reading Wheatley, DW coming to my notice through of all those Sunday adverts for the Heron Editions; as a teenager I could not afford these but they spurred me on to the library to borrow the black m...

Wow! Wheatley on Kindle, is it not wonderful everyone? Suddenly (almost) we now have many of the fiction titles on the amazon store. Just think, many of us lamented the lack of Wheatley in current publication; the ebook market has rectified this. Many of us remember the days (in the UK anyway) of re...

Hi all, Ive recently read this, filling in my readings gaps for the de richleau novels. Its not Wheatley's best novel, although for Wheatley, he considers it his best; perhaps he was proud of the novel due to his own experiences in the great war and its historical accuracy, with the recognition it r...

A couple of questions for those Wheatley specialists out there...

Will this new edition count as a first, like some of the other omnibuses?

My cover for V for Vengeance has arrived and now sits wrapped around the book and it looks wonderful. Excellent reproduction. Looks just like the copy on this site's A to Z bookshelf. Highly satisfied with this and have now ordered Devil Rides Out and Faked Passports cov :D ers.

Always best to look at it as a challenge Jim. I think continuity is more of an issue for fans (me included) than writers. The worlds of Doctor Who, Star Trek are other examples where continuity means so much to the fans. We fans want the world of the fiction too fit as neatly as possible, but for th...

Im trying to track down post war first editions, Lymingtons and various interesting signed copies. Just wondered what other peoples prefered collecting habits were. I recen...
