Finally picked up a copy of Chris Lee reading Strange Conflict on ebay. Congratulations, nick - an excellent choice, but isn't it frustrating to see the other titles there and no way to find them?! I know we've discussed this topic before, but have absolutely no idea how popular the format would be...

Re: The horror, the horror

I've just sent you a copy on Franklin's behalf (the email heading is "Horror Of Dreadstone Moor"). Hope you enjoy it as much as we have! :D ... Still waiting! ... Actually it got me to wonder if there are any novels or stories in which DW (or somebody vaguely recognisable as him) makes an...

Magnificent gloomysundae :smt038. Tell Chrissie she's lost none of her talents. She should open up one of those animated greeting card sites - this and others of the same ilk would go down a bomb! Now, how can I fit this in with the intro page ... ... ... Oh, and dare I 'come out', but I'm a closet ...

Thanks gloomysundae, and there's more..., but I'll leave them for you to find!

(link to Faust's intro now corrected, in case anyone wondered what had gone wrong)

Seems to be a transmission fault Gary. Unfortunately it appears that the fault re-occurs on numerous occasions on the same channel. I just hope it isn't like a virus and spreads to terrestrial channels (or any future planned productions!).

Apologies accepted :-)

However, I'm intrigued to know - have you somehow recently seen the film?

I don't mind critiques from anyone about any of DW's novels, but I think I have the right to ask contributors to stick to DW's writings... Who on earth are Ronald Squire, Anthony Bushell and Barry McKay?? Certainly not DW's characters! Now if you've somehow got yourself a copy of the film that was m...

Stevie P , once again, echoing FL 's thoughts, an exceptional critique and reference posting - many thanks. I, along, I suspect, with many others, wouldn't know where to begin with this classic as it must have touched us all in different ways. It certainly became the starting point for my own set o...

Aside from the entertainment (and there's a lot of that), they are essential reading for those want to know more about DW the man!!

Have you got all the intro's online? Not yet, but am in the middle of doing so. Will let you know when I've finished. Even funnier is Wheatley's comment about Van Helsing: brilliant! Reminds me of an observation about human nature – "we tend to dislike in others what we secretly dislike in ou...

On behalf of gloomysundae: Dracula intro.

I assume gloomysundae, you are referring to the 5th para? ;)

Fascinating insight, thanks maisonvivante . I must get out and find myself a copy of The Ninth Gate . I was totally in ignorance about it being an adaptation of one of Dumas' titles, which in itself has interesting connections, as DW freely confessed that he based his de Richleau tales on Dumas' wor...
