Looking at the first 'free' six pages on Amazon, I see another person's name is also spelt two different ways.

But I won't say more 'til I've read it. It's on order.

What do you think ??? Will you be giving it a read ???

All best !

A new 'Modern Musketeers' book. 'Blasphemy' ???

Dear All, My thanks as so often to Jim Devlin in the USA for some breaking news that had escaped me. A person named Geoff Martin has written a novel about the 'three musketeers' with the events taking place some two years after the Duke's death. I'm not sure if he received the appropriate permission...

I like that sort of challenge ... sorry I wasn't able to come up with a better answer ... at least yet !

If you find the missing bits let me know ... or maybe you should have a go at reconstructing them - ?

All best !

I would if I could but I can't :D

I've just consulted a copy of the original first edition published in January 1936.

The passage is on page 278 there, and is identical to what you quote from the Heron edition.

I guess I'll have to consult the manuscript :D !

Best as always !

Re: 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: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/thinking-man/secrets-of-the-underground-bunker-where-churchill-won-world-war No need to buy the book...

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange of Marvel Comics fame was one of the other great literary (?) loves of my youth. You will not therefore be surprised that I went and saw the movie with the superb Benedict Cumberbatch last week (twice - once in 2D and once in 3D :D ). It was a great movie, and the reason for this post...

The 2017 Convention

Dear All, This is just to confirm that our tenth Convention will be held at Elstree on Saturday 11th November 2017. The reason it is being held a little later is, as agreed at the 2015 Convention, so we can mark the 40th anniversary of DW's death on 10.11.77 on the Friday night. As usual, I will do ...

Dear All, It's nice to see that everyone enjoyed it was much as Nat and I did. I'll start a new thread shortly, but just a reminder that as agreed at the 2015 Convention, our tenth will be held on Saturday 11th November 2017 - again at Elstree. The reason for the slightly later date is so we can mar...
