More fan mail!

I've had another lovely comment this week on the blog, which I wanted to share, not only because it made me feel good, but because I was tickled by what JRSM said:

£Hi! I just discovered your blog, and it's an absolutely amazing resource. I've been collecting VMCs for some years (my eyes jump straight to them in second-hand bookshops), and have about 250 of the older green-spined ones. Whenever I look at ABE or Amazon for out-of-print VMCs, there's usually no blurb or description of what the book is about, so I don't know whether to take the plunge or not. Now I've printed off your whole blog so far and will use it to guide my future buying and reading. Fantastic stuff! Thank you. PS: I have to admit I did the printing at work, and used the binding machine to give it an appropriately olive-green cover. "

I emailed him and he kindly supplied me with pictures of his print out. I want one too (though maybe when the project is completed!)

JRSM has his own blog, Caustic Cover Critic, and mentioned that he interviewed the cover artist for the most recent Angela Carter books recently, which you can find here.


  1. That's wonderful Verity! That's a great copy to have. It looks great!

  2. Great resource! A print-out of all of one's posts would be a lovely thing. I linked to the same post when I interviewed Roxanna Bikadoroff (or around the same time).

  3. How awesome. Your blog printed out makes ushc a great catalog. And I have long loved Caustic's blog, what great fan to have.
