Welcome to the Vault! Very nice article about this series. As one of the token Yanks prowling around here. a lot of these NEL titles seem rather exotic to me, since so far as I know, none of them were distributed over here.
Didn't The Orgy of Bubastis have at least one other edition? I have the feeling I've seen the title, which made an impression because it sounds so hilariously camp (to this reader, at least), but with a different cover and different bibliographic details.
You get special marks for this astute sentence:
It's fair to conclude that 'The Orgy of Bubastis' - and, sadly, there isn't an orgy in sight here - is Hyde-Chambers' staunch moral warning about his three biggest fears: drugs, health resorts and Germans.
Yes, welcome from me too; hope you enjoy your time here! I really enjoyed your blog; "The Venomous Serpent" looks particularly appealing to me; I was glad to find it's available as an ebook as not surprisingly the print book is a bit rare.

Thanks all - yeah in the UK the NELs have wildly differing prices. I picked up most of these for no more than £5 tops, but I was looking to research Errol Lecale next and some of his output is second mortgage land!
