Dan Brown actually does remind me of Wheatley only writing adventure and conspiracy tales instead of occult ones, though Wheatley did that too, I remember reading interviews with Brown before he was famous, before Da vinci Code even, when he talked about just trying to find a couple of popular eleme...

I dont think that Braveheart is the worst example of historical revisionism, though I would say that I'm a celt, I think worse are things like Black Hawk Down, you would think it was world war three instead of a US adventure botched by the third world's answer to street gangs, or the films about wor...

even recent reprints of the books dont seen to be in a format liable to appeal to any market but when you consider the success of things like the Da Vinci Code surely its time for a come back?

I still think there's something in what Orwell said about the conservatives or right wingers making better novelists, I've never read any books that I would have considered as being written by left wing novelists, I think they try to write literature or serious fictional pieces more often, in my exp...

I like to read Wheatley's politics, though I do think they are so overstated at times that it almost reads like he is satirising himself, like a weird pastiche at times, which I'm sure he didnt mean at all, I dont think a book would suffer from being un-PC the success of books like Fight Club I woul...

Decline of Dennis

I dont know what could have lead to Dennis Wheatley's decline in less than two generations, if I find copies of his books reprinted they are usually at clearance or bargain book shops, the majority of my wheatley books are second hand copies from second book stores, I was wondering what everyone thi...

Heyah Bob, great to meet you, this is a great forum and an even better site, I'll check out ebay soon, Irish satanic going ons can be pretty much split into music scenes and related cultures, goofy tree hugging hippy adherents of wicca, hellfire clubs, the real macoy (very rare), has anyone read any...

left wing novelists? there's such a thing? Are you serious? :lol: :lol: I'm a socialist and I've been looking for socialist novels for years, apart from Orwell who a lot of people take for a straight forward anti-communist rather than socialist opposition, I've found nothing, I've really got to say,...

If I'm not wrong the ethnic dimension of theosophy, derived largely from the Indo-European element of the Hindu caste system, bares striking similarities to the racist theories of the NSDWP particularly the racial index with Aryans at the top and stuff about arcadia and all that, so there is a possi...

I think that Americans like Stephen King would be more indebted to HP Lovecraft than Dennis Wheatley,

I'm trying to finish Gateway to Hell at the moment, I've read all the others in the du richeleau series and I kind of was disappointed by Gateway to Hell, not exactly sure why, it's just not as great as either The Devil Rides Out or Strange Conflict, which was absolutely fantastic I thought

Hello All, I'm 27yr old from Ireland, turned 27 this last week so I dont know if that makes me younger than average or not for this forum, my mum and dad where fans of Dennis Wheatley when I was growing up but I never read a Dennis Wheatley book until I think I was 21yrs old, having been born and ra...
