I enjoyed the scenes with the spiders - they were very well done and truly frightening.
But overall found the book a bit of a plod and very silly with it's Soviet devil worshipers.

Guardian of the Abyss

Did anyone else feel that this Hammer House of Horror episode was superior to the film the Dveil Rides Out? I know that Dennis Wheatley did not write the script for this TV episode but I feel it was closer in spirit to what he was trying to say in the Devil Rides out:that evil is too powerful, even ...

SPGB

As you can see far from being fossilized The Socialist Party of Great Britain has also made its own contributions to socialist theory, in the light of further developments, going beyond, some of the theories of socialist pioneers like Marx and Engels. We set out below a number of these contributions...

SPGB

The Socialist Party of Great Britain has a record of being consistently correct on a number of important issues over its ninety or so years of activity. The SPGB warned about the dangers of socialists advocating reforms long before the shameful collapse of European Social Democracy in the First Worl...

The SPGB has never had an MP elected. Which is disappointing but to still be in existence after 100 yrs is quite an achievement. Sadly too many members of the working class believe it is in thier interests to vote for the mainstream parties. This is a mistake on their part as these parties work with...

As for not lasting long in Spain, Hoyo you are confusing socialism with socialists! Granted there can be no socialism without socialists and I don't know if we had (SPGB) any sympathisers in Spain who were ruthlessly crushed but you can't kill an idea! As long as capitalism exists so will Marxism as...

SPGB

Hoyo you sound suprised that the SPGB is still going why? Capitalism is our best recruting seargant. though my thanks to the British state for educating me to such a high standard that I can actually read and understand Marxian socialism. Well, Marx did say capitalism creates it's own grave-diggers....

I'd agree the star of ill-omen is the wrost book I've read of his so far.
It starts off, badly, as a 5h rate James Bond caper and goes down hill from there with the appearance of the alien. I only made it asfar as the fyling saucer and had to give up there.

Here is a statement from the SPGB, a which I'm a member of, about the Spanish Civil War. We have been asked to state as briefly as possible the principles which govern the attitude of the SPGB towards struggles such as that going on in Spain. The first is that, as a matter of course, Socialists are ...

Oh - unlike you I don't own any of this country and have no religion. My way of life? Whatever that means - I have to get along with the system they have here. What if I don't like the 'way of life' here? So do I or should I have to fight in that case? again my answer is no. My country is not worth ...
