Interesting that Murder Off Miami should be popular at a Girls' School.

Mind you, it seems to be women who are more fascinated than men by the seemingly endless cycle of murder mystery series on television these days.[font=Times New Roman] [/font]

Hey, does this mean you two guys are coming to the Convention this year?

You sound like my kind of DW fans!

I'll vote for that proposal on the proviso that it is the last item before dinner.

We could just squeeze it in before the traditional 'Cocktail Hour'!!![font=Times New Roman] [/font]

How could you forget? It's very simple, you blocked it from your memory. Of course, now you've been forced to face that memory, but that's okay, it should help you cope with the mental scarring that cover caused. Please make the check out to Dr. Mocata.... :badgrin: [font=Times New Roman] [/font]Ch...

The Tennis Club is still there, and a member told us that the clubhouse dates from when the club was formed in 1905. I'm not convinced that the building is that old, but it would be nice to think that it is the same one that DW would have known. There is a mountain stream gurgling by, just as DW rec...

Field Trip No. 3

Well, Dennis Wheatley Field Trip No. 3 seems to be well and truly underway! It is just Jean and me here, but we're having a great time, although of course we wish that other friends from our DW group were here with us. The Romantik Jugendstil Hotel Bellevue (formerly Hotel Clauss Feist - designed by...

Hi Eric, we never hear of 'plus-fours' these days. I believe they were traditionally worn when playing golf. I must admit that a major attraction of nineteen-twenties and -thirties fiction for me is the period settings and language. Let us know which other period gems you come across.[font=Times New...

Ah yes, the Book Club 'Linda Lee'!

How could I forget? That has to be the new front-runner for the prize!

Charles has mentioned arrangements for this year's Convention under that topic, and invited new attenders (or should we be delegates?!!) to contact him privately. However, when he reads this, I'm sure he'll contact you . Final confirmation and payment is normally sought a couple of months before the...

Darren, does this mean you are coming to the Convention in November???

It would be great to see a new face there.

Not - I hasten to add - that there is anything wrong with the faces which are usually there![font=Times New Roman] [/font]

Yes, I've always found that cover quite bizarre. I think it has been mentioned elsewhere in the Library, probably as someone's least favourite cover of all the various editions. I don't think there is anything in the book to explain this - it is a straightforward wartime thriller. The design is prob...

Well, Jean and I did indeed raise a glass to Iwan last Friday, and I'm sure that - despite the Library being offline - we weren't the only ones to do so.[font=Times New Roman] [/font]

The 21st of June is almost upon us - the anniversary of the death of our good friend from Sweden, Iwan Morelius.

I shall raise a glass in memory of Iwan tomorrow evening![font=Times New Roman] [/font]
