SWASTIKA

A place for Sladists to share their thoughts on Michael Slade and his work...

B&N is terrible about stocking F. Paul Wilson books. You'd have a better chance finding his titles at the local grocery store.

Speaking of which...

Why is it that B&N can sometimes not carry a single copy of a Slade book for months, but my neighborhood Kroger has a dozen copies of Swastika on their rack at any given time in the last five months? I ended up buying Preston/Child's Dance of Death at a grocery store because it was cheaper than a bookstore.

Forgive me if someone already posted about this, but I've not been keeping up with the board for a while...

Suzanne (who has not yet read SWASTIKA) and I were watching THE GOOD GERMAN the other night and when the name "Dora" popped up, I had the entire movie figured out. The movie covers a lot of the same ground that SWASTIKA did. At the first mention of "Dora", I popped out with, "Oh, Dora was the underground concentration camp, blah blah blah..." When that point eventually comes up in the film, Suzanne looked at me and said something like, "You're so smart!"

I let her think that for a while and then confessed where I got the info. So, thanks, Slade. You made me look good, even if it was for just a moment.

Mafus,

No doubt you noted all that recent UFO stuff in Texas, too?

I ran across a much larger version of that foreign language copy of Swastika I posted here a while back, and have PMed specialx about having it added to the website's gallery section. I thought you all might like to see it in the mean time:

I can't remember what language we figured out it was though.

"It's finally gotten to a point where the Army is coming to their senses after they had ignored us in the past," Acevedo said. "Why the silence all these years? It's time to recognize all these soldiers who sacrificed their lives."

Gee, you don't think it could be because those GIs endured exactly what that "hero" who developed the Pentagon's ballistic missile system and put America on the moon made 60,000 (with 20,000 dead) similar slave camp laborers endure to built his V-2 rockets, do you?

Hehe well said Slade. Pardon me if I'm wrong, but hadn't Von Bron (spelling?) have something to do with the V11s, which in turn led many years later, to landing Man on the moon.?
