To the Devil - a Diva!

Paul Magrs

To the Devil - a Diva! by Paul Magrs

Karla Sorensen used to be big in horror films. In the sixties and seventies no self-respecting low-budget bloody schlocker shocker was complete without her. She was well-qualified; after all, at the age of ten, she sold her soul to the devil.

Now, although spookily ageless, Karla is knocking on in years. Her residuals are drying up and she needs some cash, so she decides to return to the north of England to appear in Menswear, Britain's most risqué TV soap opera.

But not everyone's happy about her return to the fame game. Menswear's current star, heart-throb Lance Randall is furious to hear that...

The True History of the Elephant Man

Michael Howell & Peter Ford

The True History of the Elephant Man by Michael Howell & Peter Ford

Joseph Carey Merrick, born in Leicester on 5th August 1852, is better known as the Elephant Man.

Through horrible physical deformities which were almost impossible to describe, he spent much of his life exhibited as a fairground freak until even nineteenth-century sensibilities could take no more.

Hounded, persecuted and starving, he ended up one day at Liverpool Street Station where he was rescued, housed and fed by the distinguished surgeon Frederick Treves. To Treves' surprise, he discovered during the course of their friendship that lurking beneath the mass of Merrick's corrupting flesh lived...

Monsieur Pamplemousse Hits the Headlines

Michael Bond

Monsieur Pamplemousse Hits the Headlines by Michael Bond

During his time as an inspector with the Paris Sûreté Monsieur Pamplemousse had been 'in at the death' on more than one occasion, but even he had to admit that the phrase took on an entirely new meaning when he was present at the spectacular ending to Cuisine de Chavignol, France's premier television cookery programme.

Seated in the front row of an invited studio audience, he watched in silent horror as the eponymous host, having downed an oyster in close-up, uttered a strangled cry and slowly but surely sank from view behind a kitchen worktop.

Pommes Frites, sniffer dog extraordinaire, has his...
