Many myths have grown up around the activities of the Hell-Fire Club, deep in the caves at the heart of West Wycombe Hill. The mysterious rites, Satanic practices and masked orgies of some of the most elevated figures in the land – including the Prime Minister – captured the public imagination.

Blurb:
“I suddenly beheld the figure of a man, at some distance, advancing towards me with superhuman speed.

The Mighty Atom
Blurb:
Lionel Valliscourt was an only child; and when you’ve only got one boy you expect a great deal of him.
Deprived by his father of youthful pleasures and the company of other children, surrounded by petty tyrannies and a rigorous system of  ‘intellectual training’, Lionel became pale and silent.
