Fascinating stuff, thanks Nick Armed with this new knowledge and another 'Carnacki' word used in DRO - Saiitii (forces of inanimate human trauma materialised and made animate), I did further 'googling' and found that Carnacki's stories are available on-line The Carnacki Stories . Plenty of reference...

One has to be careful with phrases like "There is an unbroken 400 year oral tradition ...", without some back-up of factual truth. What is known of a lot of todays' 'Wiccans' is that most of the so-called "old traditions" were in fact added by a few practioners to their rites in the middle of the 20...

Unless someone has got the original manuscript I doubt we'll ever know what Richard's views were. The following covers all the editions I am aware of: Chapter XI, The Horror in the Cellars The Book Club, 1942 - p.126 Hutchinson 1957 reprint - p.126 Lymington ed, 1966/08 onwards - p.126 Heron, c. 197...

Nick, the only bit I'll rise to at the moment :) is to tell you that all the copyrights for Brook Richleau Ltd and Dennis Wheatley Ltd are now owned by Wheatley Productions Ltd (aka DW's grandson - Dominic Wheatley). Film rights for the films already produced seem to be owned by Hammer although ther...

Book Reviews

On a completely different subject, a review section for the books, written by anyone who would like to write in and express an opinion would be an interesting idea. I must admit that I've not read every single Wheatley, and have started to include a couple of unread titles into my reading list ever...

My reply to the suggestion for book reviews is moved to a new topic called, suprisingly, 'Book Reviews'

I think the idea of a TV series is an excellent idea. In fact it very nearly happened in 1964. Series were planned for Roger Brook and de Richleau and production had started on a 26-part series of Sallust's WW2 exploits, but financial constraints sadly put paid to them all. Mind you, looking at how ...

To my knowledge The Forbidden Territory never made it beyond the original. And as to its present whereabouts - ?? If anyone has access to that sort of information, a reminder. It was a Progress-Wainwright production and distributed in the UK by General Film Distributors and the USA by J H Hoffberg T...
