Re: Just published - 'A THRILLER in Every Corner'

Thinking about a treat for Easter or maybe a gift for someone into suspense, anthologies or the vintage British TV scene of mid-1970s in general?

Issues with PMs (Private Messges)

Just a follow on from an issue mentioned in the 'A Killer in Every Corner' book thread. When I've sent PMs myself recently, they've sat (sometimes for a number of days or even longer) in the 'Outbox' without moving to 'Sent' (and presumably therefore not received until they've finally flowed through...

I know from experience they can sit there for some time before arriving at their destination. If it's ur...

Although it's not showing up as a banner on the site at the moment, to me at least ... I've just been kindly informed that the code TREAT15 is currently valid for a 15% discount.

This should cover any postage costs and maybe a touch more if anyone is pondering a purchase.

Re: John Saxon (1935-2020)

A mainstay of so many roles over the decades, always a pleasure to watch.

He played the main cop role in my favourite Canadian suspense thriller/horror movie 'Black Christmas' (1974) alongside Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea and Margot Kidder.

Until 1963, all videotape editing was done by physically cutting and splicing together the tape. For obvious reasons - the physical weakness introduced into the tape (at significant ris...
