Blurb
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.
This book reveals the fascinating truth behind the legends of the infamous club.

The Hell-Fire Club is Volume 26 in the Dennis Wheatley Library of the Occult

Mary Shelley Frankenstein Sphere

Blurb:
“I suddenly beheld the figure of a man, at some distance, advancing towards me with superhuman speed. He bounded over the crevices in the ice, among which I had walked with caution; his stature also, as he approached, seemed to exceed that of a man. I was troubled: a mist came over my eyes and I felt a faintness seize me.’

Such is Dr Frankenstein’s horrified reaction to the sudden encounter with the monster he has created. Filled with remorse at the ghastly results of his experiment, he feels that he must make amends…

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.

Lionel’s tutor went so far as to accuse his father of child-murder….
