Date Amendment / addition Link to new / amended area
March 2004 Due to my PC being almost out of action for a couple of months, I have been unable to edit any of the pages. Now that I am up and running again with a new PC, I have been able to start catching up.  
  Thanks to Konstantin Kalmyk from Moscow and Viktor Davydov from St. Petersburg, a number of Russian covers now grace the world pages (note the recent publishing dates!).  I think I've got the coding right for you to see the Cyrillic characters in the titles without affecting the rest of the page, but if anyone has a problem – please let me know. Non-UK editions:
(Russia)
  Thanks also to Giancarlo Pellegrin from Triest, I have added further details to 'Una Figlia per il Diavolo' (To The Devil—A Daughter). Non-UK editions:
(Italy)
  Noticed this on eBay but missed out in the bids for it!  'Fuerzas Oscuras' (They Used Dark Forces). Non-UK editions:
(Spain)
  Still on foreign editions – a new German paperback from 1975 is added to the collection – The Satanist (Der Agent, der den Teufel Jagte). Non-UK editions:
(Germany)
  Moving on to foreign crime dossiers – I have now added 3 pictures of the famous French 'Ramsey' crime dossiers from the early 1980's. Non-UK editions:
(France)
  And continuing with foreign dossiers, an early one from Chile, the sales of which, I suspect, did not bring any extra royalties to DW! Non-UK editions:
(Chile)
  Thanks to the generosity of a regular correspondent, Charles Beck, I have now included on the bibliography page another book with a foreword by DW: Gate of Dreams by Charles Beatty. Recommended reading for those who want to follow up on Wheatley's beliefs on re-incarnation. Bibliography of all things Wheatley
(Works Introduced by Dennis Wheatley)
  Since publishing the page on the 'Heron' edition, I have been inundated with requests from people thinking I am the expert on all of the 'Heron' Collections. Unfortunately I have had to tell them that this isn't so, although I appear to be the only person on this planet that has published anything on the web about them. However due to the kindness of Kevin Gregory, who took the time to scan every page of his Heron Book Catalogue from 1982, I have departed from 'everything Wheatley' to include some pages detailing the collections from that catalogue. Heron Publications
  And now for the item which excites me most – a NEW publication (1998) which, until it was bought to my attention by Tim of New Jersey, I was totally unaware of: The Nine Ages Of Justerini's.  I cannot speak too highly of this publication, it is a joy to behold and takes pride of place in my collection, not only for it's Wheatley connection, but for it's incredible collection of artwork.  Belated congratulations to J&B for such a tasteful volume – Dennis would have been proud! The Seventies onwards
(The Nine Ages of Justerini's)
6 April 2004 Thanks to correspondent Clive Williams, I am now aware that at least one of the original crime dossiers was reprinted in a different colour than the 1st edition!  (One never stops learning!)  Thanks, Clive, for the scan of the reprint of Who Killed Robert Prentice? 1935-1937
(Who Killed Robert Prentice?)
15 April 2004 Thanks again to Clive Williams for the information that the reprint mentioned in the previous update of Who Killed Robert Prentice? also appeared in another colour(!) 1935-1937
(Who Killed Robert Prentice?)
  It's amazing how one action leads to another.  As a result of including the dossier reprint on the 1st edition pages, I have at last got round to adding known reprint information for all the titles and have taken the opportunity to make each page shorter for faster loading.

28 April 2004 Many thanks to an anonymous correspondent who has supplied me with pictures of the jackets for the 1939 edition of Those Modern Musketeers and the 1940 edition of Three Inquisitive People, thus completing the 1st editions, with the exception of the elusive '...Of Vice and Virtue'!

7 May 2004 James Hallgate of Lucius Books, York, has owned up to being the proud owner of the two covers mentioned above! I have therefore amended the entries to acknowledge his ownership and thank him very much for allowing the pictures to be shown on the site.

3 October 2004 In 1973 a Swedish bio bibliography of DW was published entitled 'Fyra Decennier med Dennis Wheatley', but didn't make much impact in Britain as it was published in Sweden with an emphasis on the Swedish editions.  However, for the serious collector it was also a valuable, if limited, resource for the information it held on the English publications.  Now, thanks to the co-operation of Iwan Morelius (aka Hedman), for the collector who has always wanted to see what other delights the black book holds, I present, for the very first time, the English version entitled 'The Four Decades of Dennis Wheatley' by Iwan Hedman and Jan Alexandersson. Intro page to Four Decades of Dennis Wheatley
  'Woman's Own' advert added to the Heron page. The 'Heron' edition
