Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

Thank you so very much, Lorraine, for the long list that you took the trouble to write out for me. I am currently working my way steadily through it, and noting down your information in the relevant gaps. Inevitably other questions arise, but you certainly don't need to rush to answer them, even if ...

Re: Ramsey's Raiders

I take it you won't be buying the Rebellion version which has only one story for the same price then? You've hit the nail seriously on the head there, Col. Historically, I never had any interest whatsoever in COMMANDO , and over the years since, I can assure you that there has been no increase, nor...

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

This is a request for information on some of the content of some issues of MANDY in 1975, 1976, and 1979. I really just need to know the starting and/or finishing details of any serials that start or end in the following issues:- 457 : 459 : 462 to 467, 469 to 476 : 478 to 480 : 482 to 486 : 488 : ...

The words 'off' and 'rip' come to mind, Steve, but not necessarily in that order.

Re: Commando Announcement

I think Digi was referring to those Thomson girls titles that had a picture library associated with them Derek, namely Bunty, Judy, and Debbie. I've just been upstairs to my second bedroom, Ray, which is so full of boxes that for the time being I have no idea where my collections of DEBBIE Picture ...

Re: Commando Announcement

I think Digi was referring to those Thomson girls titles that had a picture library associated with them Derek, namely Bunty, Judy and Debbie. Well I'm undecided, Ray, as to whether to place 100% of the blame on Digi for a lack of clarity, or on myself due to not having fully recovered from the alc...

Sorry to have to tell you this, Steve, but you've been seriously overcharged for that book.

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

Apparently we are all going out for a meal tonight to celebrate Lois's thirteenth birthday. As she is seriously into Harry Potter, from a local bric-a-brac shop I bought her three longish planks of wood, two of which had the words already painted on them. On one of them was painted the word HOGWARTS...

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

One thing I forgot to mention about my London trip was that on a visit to Bocketts Farm, Andrew, Aurora, Kelsey, and I watched a pig race. I've never seen anything like it in my life. There were five pigs, and they had to run one lap. Their names were Voldesnort, Justin Bieboar, Beyoinkse, Piggy Sta...

45/2? As there are no months with 45 days, Bri, this doesn't make sense.

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

Just a piece of additional information on Edward Marston's output, or to put it another way, verbal diarrhoea. According to the biographical blurb, he has been a full-time writer for over forty years, and is a former chairman of the Crime Writers' Association. He has produced 52 novels across six se...

Re: Phoenix's Future Plans

It was certainly a future plan on July 24th, as I went to London on the 25th to spend a week with Andrew. I only got back by train at 6.15 this evening, which explains why I haven't posted any comments recently. Having read this evening the contributions made during my absence, there aren't any to w...
