Re: The 2018 Convention

Rather later in the year than usual because of a change in management at The Laura Ashley The Manor Hotel in Elstree, I now have firm prices for the Convention and am accepting bookings. This year's booking arrangements are going to be rather different to previous years because the hotel's package ...

Re: Churchill - Darkest Hour

Jean and I saw this film a few weeks ago, and both enjoyed it immensely. We both thought Gary Oldman splendid in the role. I couldn't remember seeing him in anything before, and when you see the actor in his natural state (I mean without make-up, NOT without clothes!) he looks nothing like Churchil...

I downloaded and read the essay on Sunday. Your review is spot on- there's hardly anything new there. And it's all rather clumsily written. If it had cost more than a couple of quid, I'd have considered it a waste of money. It has been issued as a paperback now, with illustrations. Somehow I got th...

It will surprise no-one that the Lymington edition has the exact same paragraph.

The Cabinet War Rooms

This seemed a good place to put this item...

I don't know if DW will be mentioned in this book at all, but there's a new volume on Churchill and the Cabinet War Rooms:

Also if you check out Dennis Wheatley on kindle store (for example, via amazon) the front covers have been re-vamped with new designs. I went to look at these at the Kobo store (my e-reader), and quite liked them. Unfortunately, that abomination Natural Selection also shows up there. I took the opp...

And in a sense, new DW readers will have it better than those who read him in his prime... they will get to read the novels in proper chronological order, and follow the Duke as a young man desperately in love to a man who dies in heroic circumstances. I wonder if reading them that way would make i...
