Is it possible that not everyone has come back after the hiatus? I know there are some names I have not seen again. On the other hand, I'm on an Andre Norton forum that can go weeks without a posting as well. (Her death slowed that forum down drastically, though she never posted there herself.) I wa...

It's a great title, but from the Amazon (fan) reviews, the book is riddled with errors. (Glad I checked before racing over to Book Depository to buy it...)

Mystery novelist/collector Martin Edwards does a pretty nice piece on the Crime Dossiers on his website. He calls them "an intriguing experiment in crime fiction which has been imitated and developed but not as yet surpassed."

Unfortunately, U.S./Amazon doesn't seem to offer these, and I don't think it would be fair for me to go to the U.K. site to boost them...

I only caught Erika and her cards because I read the Sallust/WW II series in order, and fairly close together. I've read the Modern Musketeers at various times, and still haven't read most of the Roger Brooks. (Also, as an editor myself in a former career, it's the kind of thing I notice..)

Ooh, and look at some of the other stuff--Collected Stories of Lovecraft, and Richard Marsh's THE BEETLE, which hasn't been available for ages!

In my now-lost response to this thread, I wondered if DW ever regretted not changing Gregory's name to something else for the "new" series, and just leaving BLACK AUGUST as a stand-alone novel. However, as Alan points out, continuity seems not to have been a major concern for this author--he was too...

We're back, but we seem to have lost several days of recent postings... :cry:


By the way, please don't include me in any thanks. All I did was check the site every day, keeping my fingers crossed that the people doing the *real* work would be successful.

Thanks to Charles, and Sue, and everybody else who has made it possible for the site--and The Library--to resume!

Stevie asks: << Where did you order this from? Wouldn't mind getting a copy myself. >> Mine is coming from Oldies.com. What I did was put the title of the film on Google, followed by the letters DVD. Then you check out the suppliers who come up. (Oldies.com is a U.S.-based outfit, so was the best ch...

I have all three of the Hammer films on DVD. THE DEVIL RIDES OUT is the best in every respect--best film version, best "extras." Living in the States, I didn't see THE HAUNTED AIRMAN, but from what you folks say, I didn't miss much. Meanwhile, I live in hope that some enterprising film company will ...

ANNOUNCEMENT: Bob Rothwell passed on Boxing Day

To Georgina's "This is the end!", Roger Brook replies, "Nay, dear heart, 'tis no more than the passing to a new beginning." I recently received the news of Bob's death, and felt this message (from his wife Sue) should be posted here, for those who had not received or seen it any other way. "I know y...

Well, I don't know how many DW novels Winston Churchill read, but he certainly knew his work and respected his imagination.
