The Heron edition (all signed and dedicated by DW)

I have been approached by Iwan Morelius (née Hedman, the Swedish bibliographer of DW) to see if anyone would be interested in buying his complete set of the Heron edition. He tells me they are all mint and as well as having his (Iwan's) personal bookplate in each copy, they are all signed and dedic...

The Devil Rides Out – the musical!

Discovered the musical quite by accident a few weeks ago, made further enquiries and eventually made contact with the writer concerned. As you will see from the new web page devoted to this, the musical version of 'The Devil Rides Out' was produced in the early 90s, but in spite of excellent reviews...

The discussion between Toohey and Hoyo de Monterrey, interesting though it is, has moved off-topic. I have therefore moved the rest of the discussion to the Off-Topic forum, where I hope to see the relevant points expanded further.

Bob, You may have noticed my review of 'Such Power is Dangerous'. I added it to the general topic rather than the Book Reviews as I didn't know how to create a new section for DW books other than the ones listed ie Duke De R and Gregory Sallust. (There wasn't a section for Avril bamborogh, suprisin...

I tried to access this tale through the link provided but, to my dissapointment, I got an "unauthorised to view this page" message. I strongly suspect that this is because my IE is set up to repel spyware, and in fact the firewall did detect the site trying to load a cookie of some kind onto my HD....

Re: Devil rides Out soundtrack

I picked up a CD copy of the musical score to Hammers Prod. of 'The Devil Rides Out'. It's been out a while, and includes copious notes to the film and D.W. and an eleven minute interview with Chis. Lee, plus various outakes and wildtracks. Not bad for a fiver.I suspect most readers have owned it f...

Re: Strange Conflict

I wonder if this desire for cleanliness was some sort of reaction to DW's experiences during his service in WWI? Certainly the most fastidious man I know ( a fellow ex-naval officer) spent most of his career in submarines, which (at least in those days) were not renowned for immaculate personal hyg...

BBC 4 - THE HAUNTING OF TOBY JUGG

My eagle-eyed rfl spotted the following, extracted from Baz Bamigboye's column in yesterday's Daily Mail (Friday 7 July 2006): [align=center] http://www.denniswheatley.info/uploads/dm20060707.gif [/align] My twitching antennae had not picked up anything about this, so this has come as a complete sur...

Brilliant idea gloomysundae. If no-one else objects, I'll try and get round to that in the next few weeks. It'll also make it easy for me to get to when I copy them to the main site.

Aahh - did you miss me? Thanks for the thoughts, but don't be too premature. You'll notice that the fancy formatting buttons don't work yet and I can't yet resurrect the 'ticker-tape' announcements, but at least we can talk! I've also got to find a way to verify my backups whenever I do them. Can yo...

If you joined between mid-April to mid-June 2006 - READ THIS

This forum suffered a major crash on 8 June 2006 and has only been operating from 15 June until now on a temporary footing. I have been able to manually re-construct all messages and topics and allocate them to the respective members. However from mid-April 2006 onwards, due to faulty backups (not m...

Hoyo de Monterrey - Welcome and glad to see you're not afraid to resurrect a good subject! Do I get the impression that the Duke and his companions rate OK? Sorry to see from another of your postings that you don't rate RB, though. Is it the character or the setting that puts you off? Re your reque...

PS Bob, if you should read this, excuse my cheek, but over at The Vault , I've penned a short story, featuring a character called 'Gregory Pendennis' who is (I hope) an 'affectionate lampoon' of a certain Black Magic Story author. I'd be interested in your opinion! Frank - brilliant, couldn't leave...
