Re: Curious DW reference

Thanks for that D. Your post prompted me to look Shaw's stuff up on Google Images. It would be interesting to identify the DW link. I'll have a crack at it in a spare moment.

PS: Darren- I'm with you on the Doom Bar. If I'd mentioned it in the above post, I'd have been using the word 'anodyne' twice.

Re: The 2018 Convention

This 19th century inn is nearby and looks pleasant - with loads of ale. https://www.chefandbrewer.com/pubs/hertfordshire/battle-axes/?utm_source=g_places&utm_medium=locations&utm_campaign= Ten years ago, I was very familiar with the rural pubs of south Hertfordshire, but recently, considerably less...

Re: Churchill - Darkest Hour

Britain was worth fighting (and dying) for then.

But as for today's society...I wouldn't recommend anyone take up arms for zero-hours contracts, celebrity worship and gender neutral bogs.

Re: DW article in The Telegraph

A series of, say, four episodes (two hours apiece). TDRO, SC or TTDAD. Full attention to period detail. Done properly it'd grip the nation, not just us aficionados.

A druid critiques DW

I found this on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BP39zN1N7iM Interesting to hear a pagan/occultist's take on DW's Black Magic novels. The speaker (Thomas Sheridan), contrary to appearances, is not an unfortunate victim of Ireland's worsening housing crisis, but rather a writer, speaker and n...

Re: DW article in The Telegraph

One in particular struck me: I see no reason why his novels would not make a terrific TV series. I thought that myself the other day. I'm currently rereading TDRO and I've been imagining what...

Re: I'm new

I enjoyed...his historical pieces least Ha! Couldn't agree with you more. Wheatley reminds me of Kipling. Both are currently unfashionable and both held objectionable political views Anti-collectivism, a love of country, a belief in Judeo-Christian civilisation? Personally, I find little in DW's vi...
