NEWSDUSK: Farewell Interzone@TYPE, recent Books, Mags & Zines, Zardoz, etc.

NEWSDUSK: Farewell Interzone@TYPE, recent Books, Mags & Zines, Zardoz, etc.

Gregory Pendennis Nun More Sinister

The Vault forum doesn’t leave me as much time as i’d like to post regular news updates, but there’s been plenty to report of late so lets get down to business.

Firstly, it is our sad duty to report that interzone books are no longer an ongoing concern. The TYPE shop still stands and is always worth a visit but, alas, no more row upon row of beloved pulp paperbacks to wade through! It was brilliant while it lasted and we thank Milan for all the effort he put in and wish him well with his future endeavours. We understand he is still planning for the Zardoz Book Fair on November 6th and it is highly likely there will be a scowling vault contingent staggering about the Plaza basement.

On the anthology front, personal favourite of recent months has been, predictably enough, Charles Black’s Eighth Black Book Of Horror. I hope to have copies of the Paul Finch edited Terror Tales Of The Lake District and Gary Fry’s Death Rattles (both Gray Friar Publications) shortly, so avoid our forum for next few weeks unless you wanna be subjected to my entirely worthless verdict on same.

Lots of magazines! As posted earlier, Justin Marriott’s indispensable Paperback Fanatic has now clocked up twenty superb issues in five years, an incredible achievement! The second issue of Martin Jones’ Bedabbled!: British Horror and Cult Cinema is imminent – a ‘Cult Of Satan’ special and, from a rough pdf i’ve seen, a very impressive beast it is, too. Have also received the first five issue’s of Cranston McMillan’s wildly entertaining a-bit-of-everthing-really! fanzine, Kontinental X. The links for these last two lead straight back to the Vault forum, mainly because neither mag has much of a web presence just yet though you can catch up with Martin on faceache.

Sara of the very beautiful My Love Haunted Heart is interviewed at some length on her passion for vintage Gothic Romance over at the impressive After Dark In The Playing Fields. And good luck to The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society in their quest to “make reading sexy.”

thanks for reading

Bloody kisses,

gloomy sundae

Gregory Pendennis – Piranhas in Petticoats

Posted by demonik on April 22, 2009

Gregory Pendennis – Piranhas in Petticoats (Elmslie & Co., 1913, 1934: Spear, 1975, 1980) )

THE MENACE WITHIN

“I mean, confound it all, you insolent baggage! Your country’s about to wage war on the Hun!”

On the surface, Rosie Prenderghast-Smythe seemed no different to any other correct young English debutante. Beautiful. Wealthy. Devoted to Daddy and ‘Mumsy’. Fiercely proud of the Great British way of life.

Why then, had top brass been seen fit to haul in the Duke de Risqué to explain his dearest grand-daughter’s recent muddle-headed outbursts at perceived “injustices”. Outbursts which may yet see her gaoled as a threat to national security?

The answer was more terrible than de Risqué dared fear. His dearest grand-daughter had fallen prey to an even deadlier enemy than Kaiser Bill, Satan and all their hordes combined. The young fool had been duped into joining the Suffragette movement.

Heavily disguised, securing employment far below his station, de Risqué learns from his ‘fellow’ gossiping pantry maids that, brainwashed by her Soviet pay-mistresses, Rosie is recruiting an all-women’s football team to challenge his Majesty’s first XI for the Football Association Challenge Cup at the Crystal Palace!

Can the Duke knock some sense into Miss Prenderghast-Smythe’s dizzy little head before she can bring the Empire to its knees?
