You can't say they're not promoting his stuff! $8.99 for three novels--it's never been this inexpensive. (I'd love to know how it's selling...)

Re: Bill for the use of a body

Charles Beck informs me that Julian Day was supposed to have appeared in a total of seven books relative to this theme. It never happened. It does make you wonder what the outcome would have been for Merri and Julian if they had been given the opportunity to fill those extra books that were origina...

I was surprised to see today that Matthew Coniam's Dennis Wheatley Project has new content...for the first time in over two years! He's only gotten up to the book (and film of) Uncharted Seas , but the most interesting thing came a few days before that: a link to an interview with Miranda Vaughan Jo...

You probably all know (and I think it's been posted here) that Tartarus collected Mr Dobson's essays into a book, following his death. Like all Tartarus titles, it was a small edition, and sold out quickly. To console myself for not getting the book, I ordered the single issue Steve talks about, and...

I still wish he had written more Black Magic Stories. It was mentioned at the Convention that it would have been nice to have read a Julian Day story in this genre. It must have been his least successful series, as he abandoned the plan to write six (?) novels, in which Julian got his own back on t...

I hope others will continue this thread, I think it's hugely enjoyable .... and Alan, I agree with you completely about fanfic ... maybe in the fullness of time this will happen ...

Have any copies reached the United States yet? [font=Times New Roman] [/font] Mine arrived late last week. It truly is a beautiful piece of bookmaking, with a striking jacket, and a very nice binding. Some of the essays do look rather scholarly, but some are more along the lines of what you would f...

Hurrah! My copy arrived today, and a very handsome volume it is too. I have their two books about Baron Corvo and his followers, and I know they do quality work. As it's a limited edition, I would think it's a must-have for any serious Rohmer fan (even though I whinge about the cost of the shipping...

A release date!!!

Yes, Strange Attractor Press has finally announced the release of Lord of Strange Deaths ! "500 copies, available only via Strange Attractor Press from 21 September." Needless to say, I have ordered it, though postage to the U.S. is an outlandish £15. :roll: "Forever associated with his creation of...

I love the idea that this might have been a spur to getting Three Inquisitive People published. I have no proof of this at all, but certainly--with three full-length novels already included-- Those Modern Musketeers didn't need any padding. We know that he never went back to anything he had written...
