Charles/Nick Good to read you are thinking of organising a second convention, especially as it also gives everyone at the last convention the chance to meet up again and hopefully meet new friends. Agree with Charles that budgets may have to be sensative due to the current economic climate, but hope...

First of all being positive I've posted this under Wheatley Revival rather than the Decline of Dennis heading. Reading through, at long last, the posts about the decline of Dennis, I tend to agree with the ones that his work is difficult to obtain in new form is because his characters have been allo...

Hi Caroline, may I too wish you a belated welcome to the site. I recently got back into reading DW just over two years ago and have been trying to get a complete library of his non-fiction works, only 2 to go. I have not got them all in the same series, but was very fortunate to visit a local branch...

I also think Strange Conflict is an excellent book in its own right, and is ripe to be made into either a modern film, or as I have previously posted, a mini TV series along with The Devil Rides Out and Gateway To Hell. Although the De Richleau series involve my favourite characters, I was initially...

Just wish to add my good wishes to you all for 2008. Although I only joined the site in November 2006, I, like many of you others, still remember the shocking message we all received this time last year, and as someone else posted at the time, could not believe how saddened I was by the passing of s...

The 10th or 17th may will also be ok for me. just a couple of thoughts. if it proves difficult to arrange a bank account or a treasurer, is it possible to make a group booking but make each one of us responsible for our own bills. This could be done by supplying the hotel with all our names so they ...

I have copies of the Hammer Collection DVD's of The Devil Rides Out and To the Devil A Daughter I could bring to the convention with me if they would be of interest.

I agree with Nick, this could be a real opportunity to reach the right people to generate real genuine interest in DW's work. I've posted elsewhere that I think the Devil Rides Out, Strange Conflict and Gateway to Hell would make a good TV trilogy. Wouldn't mind having a go at adaptation myself if I...

Agree with Charles to withdraw the private message facility, but I do have a private message that I did not access. Therefore if it was sent by a fellow genuine member, please accept my apologies for not replying. Interesting reading Jim's comment about the Tramadol. Since Jim's posting thre has bee...

Just wish to add my appreciation to Charles and his IT guys for cleaning up the membership list. It is now upto all of us to help keep the site interesting and hopefully help attract new genuine members. I also agree with the comments about Bob, regretably, I only exchanged very few e-mails with him...

Toohey, a very good question. Turning your question around, are there are members who have still to come back ? I know Charles took on a suggestion put forward that all members were e-mailed to let them know that the site was open again, I wonder if there are some that a follow up mail would be wort...

Don't know if it would work, or how difficult it would be, but is there a way that after an application for membership is made that a second password has to be given by the site operators before membership is accepted. I know it has previously been suggested that anyone who hasn't made a post is wit...

Checked the membership myself today. Like all you old, sorry I mean longer term, members I feel it is amazing how many people have joined since the site went back on line. The site has increased tenfold since I joined last November, if only they were all genuine fans then it would be a really good c...

Hi everyone, hope you don't mind someone else joining in the fun. I only discovered this web site just before Bob's sad passing and even though I had only been a member for a short time did exchange a couple of mails with him. I would have liked to have got to know him better. I first read DW's book...
