Hi Folks - there is a review of the Dennis Wheatley event held at the Essex Book Festival on the Bloomsbury Reader website, by Camilla Shestopal. Camilla Shestopal works as an agent involved in selling rights to bring great classic authors back into the public consciousness - hence her interest in D...

This is a fun puzzle. I wonder how much is missing. It's a long shot, but another possibility is the Daily Mail serialization of They Found Atlantis from 8 January - 4 March, 1936. I have no plans to visit the British Library in the near future, but I will watch this thread with interest and if it's...

And another podcast from the US about the film, TDRO. You can watch the presenters recording the podcast on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tgjn6DTPLM8 Or you can listen to it as a usual podcast (as I did - I haven't seen the youtube version): https://gb.ivoox.com/en/s3e11m-the-devil-rides-...

DW to feature in Essex Book Festival

Hi Folks, I found this by accident. Dennis Wheatley – the man, his life and his works is a lecture being delivered at this year's Essex Book Festival, as part of the Essex Book Festival’s Golden Age of Crime Weekend in Southend-on-Sea, 11 & 12 March. The actual lecture is at 11am, on Saturday 11...

Dennis Wheatley and Haunted Borley

Hi Folks, After seeing the page on this site exhibiting the letters between DW and the Reverend A C Henning about the booklet Haunted Borley I have tried (unsuccessfully) over the years to try and get a copy of the publication, Haunted Borley, written by A C Henning. It is usually too expensive when...

This is a fairly recent podcast, again from the US, about the film To the Devil ...a Daughter. It is fairly lengthy and I was concerned when it started with a lot of nervous giggles. But, the young presenters soon relaxed and I was surprised at how good, in-depth and thoughtful the podcast is. Pleas...

I wish to add my support and commitment to this wonderful idea. I thought I would be expressing my interest and ideas at this year's convention but, regrettably, circumstances have prevented my attendance. :smt022

Please include me in any plans you make for the London Field Trip. :smt023

It is clearly inspired by TDRO with a bit of Wicker Man thrown in for good measure. A key link to TDRO film is the main actress in Guardian of the Abyss, Rosalyn Landor, who as child played Peggy in the film TDRO. Another link between Guardian of the Abyss and TDRO is they both share the same Gaffe...

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 know it's only tinkering, but it is encouraging that someone in the publishing industry is still showing an interest in promoting DW. :smt041

And another podcast about TDRO film. This one is rather annoying, the podcast series is titled YOUR STUPID MINDS: Bad movie podcast and review. It's a US series, and in this particular episode they spend about 45 minutes ridiculing and taking the p*** out of the movie. It's annoying because it seems...

I include the attached podcast because the guest is Mark Gatiss, he starts to discuss DW at 15 minutes. They have a discussion about why his popularity ended when he died and how hugely successful he was. Mark Gatiss acknowledges DW's importance but generally has a downer on him as an author and a p...

They have got all the right letters - but not necessarily in the right order, I'll give you that. :badgrin:
