I picked up three PG Wodehouse school stories at York book fair yesterday, one of which I havenít read before- so Iím about to see if ĎThe Gold Batí is up to standard.

I love PG

I am 300 pages into Talisman and I find myself struggling. There are parts I like and parts that drag.

So I've put it down for a bit to read some pulpy crime with Max Allan Collins' first Quarry novel. Loving it so far.

Arrival and Departure by Arthur Koestler. Not as famous as his Darkness at Noon, which was possibly one of the books that influenced Terry Nation (I think Una McCormack says so in her study), but still, a book about a revolutionary, so it does have some connections to B7.

I have often wondered over the years, especially in relation to the sequel, whether the parts that drag were those written by Straub. King being a very fluent and readable writer.

A good question. I haven't read any solo Straub, but I have some of his tomes in my to read pile. I might check one out after Beyond the Blue Event Horizon

Ooh. Totally brilliant. I keep meaning to re read it. To see if I can understand it better...

I've read the first 60 pages so far and they aren't too difficult to understand. Are there some complex philosophical passages later on?

The plot gets very convoluted. But maybe I was having a thick day when I read it 1st time. (No comment, rojkerr, pur-lease!)

There's also an adventure game for the Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum loosely based on the novel, entitled "La Abadia Del Crimen" (The Abbey of the Crime). However, since it was only officially released in Spain, it's only playable in Spanish.

I remember playing a Sherlock Holmes game on ZX Spectrum -- long, long time ago :)

"Sherlock" by Melbourne House?

I played it on the Commodore 64. You start off sat in an armchair at 221B. I couldn't even work out how to get out of the chair, so I never got anywhere in that game!

I did manage to get out of the chair, and I realized that in order to get to the crime scene I had to take a cab and not go on foot... And this was where my powers of deduction ended.

Do you remember playing The Hobbit?
