The seller who sold me the Film Weekly magazines had an absolutely amazing stock of fabulous stuff (also quite a few The Play, the theatre mag, which makes a brief appearance in The Book of Thoth!). I am not a big spender, but I could easily have bought their whole stock in one go... I will go back for more this year!
I am becoming rather obsessed with theatre people from the Edwardian era and, of course, the 1920s.
In The Book of Thoth, one of my characters is a former actress who was about to become a big star of the stage just before the First World War, but it is only mentioned as part of the background story.
What I'd like to do is to write a novel entirely set in the world of the theatre, but the amount of research would be staggering - and I would have to find an original angle as it has been done before, hasn't it?
The pictures below are not very good as they were taken minutes before my camera gave up for good.
Now back to The Book of Thoth.
Draft 1 will be completed next Tuesday, January 20th.
