Mystery and Crime Macdonell, A. G.: The Factory on the Cliff (1928); v1

A G Macdonell, 1895-1941 Best known for his gently humourous "England, Their England", already in this Library, Macdonnell also wrote six crime novels under the name "Neil Gordon". This is one of them. What is the secret of the factory on the cliff, the strange scientist who operates it, and his beautiful daughter? The original title was apparently "Professor's Poison".

Mystery and Crime Macdonell, A G: The Shakespeare Murders (1933), v1

A G Macdonell, 1895-1941 Best known for his gently humorous "England, Their England", already in this Library, Macdonnell also wrote six crime novels under the name "Neil Gordon". This is one of them. The tale involves a famous (or rather infamous) crook known as The Duke, a very dodgy art dealer, and what just may be an entire page, in Shakespeare's own hand, of one of his plays. (I created the cover with one of my own photos taken in England so long ago it's on Kodak film. No prizes for iden...

Older Gun Owners Have Alternative to AARP with AMAC

It mounts not to the walls, but rather floor and ceiling, thus preserving the possibility of passage on either side, while still creating a clean delineation for usable space. The material options are many and varied, each ...
