Well I think it’s refreshing to hear a Yorkshireman reading Dennis Wheatley. The term “Dukeâ€￾ is often used up ‘ere as a term of endearment - albeit with an added “câ€￾ and a missing “eâ€￾.

More please, Mercer. :smt101

Phew!! That’s another relief. I always worry now that the convention weekend will fall during one of your dry seasons.

Phew!! That's a relief. I tried on my old leotard last night - it was a bit tight and wasn't a pretty sight. :oops:

The Shout, The Wicker Man, Demons of the Mind, The Legend of Hell House, Blood on Satan's Claw, Don't Look Now, Captain Kronos, Hands of the Ripper, Fr...

It is a shame it comes out a week after the convention. We could have shown it and I could have converted you all. Still - there's always next year. \:D/
