Re: V for Vengeance

Hugh Desmond?

Does anyone here know the name Hugh Desmond? Desmond was one of the pseudonyms of Kathleen Lindsay, who--by various accounts--helped herself a little too freely to other people's published work in preparing her own novels.

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.

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 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...
