Just wonderful, a really enjoyable book. It really steps up a gear for me though when they find Atlantis. Reminded me of Haggard or Verne. Especially the ending which was similair to King Solomans mines, when they manage to escape but can't ever find a way back. I'll be sure to try those two other l...

I found it an enjoyable novel, though a bit long-winded. It could have done with a bit of editing. At is at least 1/3 too long but there is a great ending. My main gripe, apart from the length, is the American soldier, his dialouge was pretty cheesy too and nearly ruined the character.

Do you think they could revive the Hammer franchise? I thought that they'd squeezed everything they could out of the Dracula & Frankenstien templates they created back in the beginning of Hammer. I mean, Hammer was all about 'fantasy' horrors, most horror films that started to appear towards the end...

Smashing, the old place wouldn't be same without you. But watch the old, I'm only 36. Just middle-aged, at my age I don't know who to hate, the young or the old.

I dunno about Three Inquisaitive people though, his non-black-magic books are a bit of a no-no for me.

Thanks! Where is my old sparring partner Hoyo? Is he back as well? How have you all been? Read any DW books lately? Of course you have, but which ones? I've read The Satanist, To the Devil a daughter and Strange Conflict. I also tried to read Three Inquisative people but stopped when the Duke told h...

Anyone able to help out with a copy of Dangerous Inheritance? Would be most grateful. Would also love a copy of Red Eagle or his book on Witchcraft.

Hi all,

I got a copy of the e-mail advising me the site was active again today and thought I'd pop in to say hi!
I hope this forum doesn't die either and hope to keeping coming back here for a laugh and some info/opinions on DW.

Thanks Nick, jus the kind of reply I was hoping for. The original video you bought, would that have been in the early 80's before direct sales? Back then video tapes were only sold to rental dealers and were very pricey. I'm guessing it set you back at least £50! I've not seen the film on DVD but w...

The Irish Witch

I found this one a far stronger entry in the Roger Brook series. Here there are really two stories, one concerning Witchcraft with his son and the other the usual historical story set mainly in America with Roger. I found the descriptions of the Witchcraft rituals excellent and very well written - t...

Hi Gary,

Glad you got more out of it than me. Just didn't work for me, I found it sadistic and unconvincing. As I wrote before he went on to better things. His 2nd book, They Found Atlantis, was a far stronger novel. A great entry to the 'Lost World' genre.

Wheatley TV & Film adaptations

I, along with many others, was left underwhelmed by the Haunted Airman. But I would like to ask other members their opinions on other film version of his works. For me, the best of the bunch was The Devil Rides out. I'd have loved to see that on the Big screen. Any of you lot actually see this or an...

Apologies

Sorry, Bob, fraid I did get the characters in the film and the book mixed up here.

Though, in the book, the players may have changed the game is still the same!

I still think he went on to better things and it's one to avoid

Forbidden Territory

I found this one to be a real first offender. In the novel The Duc and Ronald Squire and a son, Anthony Bushell, arrive in a Russian Soviet territory searching for another Squire son, Barry McKay, who has been thrown into prison. The main gripes I have are that they all enter this seemingly impenitr...
