I took a load of Agatha Christie paperbacks, some 1960s publications, gorgeous covers, only 50p each. Not one sold. Philistines. I did sell about 4 horror books, mostly vampire based tales to a young lady. I asked which authors she liked, got the usual answer King, Herbert and Koontz, so I showed her a book by Stephen Laws called Chasm, suggested she give him a go, and thankfully she did. I can only hope that I have saved another soul from falling into the bottomless pits of convention, conformity and dullness.
