5.0 out of 5 stars Epitaph for mouse, 16 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
11th April 2013 to 16th September 2014. Eight months or so of daily double clicking, scrolling, highlighting and dragging. Mice have to give up the ghost some time and I reckon I've got a good money's worth on this one. The replacement is the B100 which is slightly cheaper.


The Book of Shadows Tarot [With Cards]
The Book of Shadows Tarot [With Cards]

2.0 out of 5 stars The Pagan tarot would be a better buy. Go get Raven Grimassi's "Well Worn Path" ..., 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What dare I say about this deck. The cards were small. the pictures dark. The meaning all hodge-a-podge throw it in a pot and luck is if you every got a picture that matched a meaning. What and who is that man at Litha with a big bunny in his lap ? Is he the Holly king come out of the forest. Who is the woman pregnant with a basket of eggs - did she walk in from Beltane. Why is the girl in Mabon in a pit ? I tell you I can't make sense of it. The majors are howlers. The pips as elements are confused. This lady does not know Wicca and ignores Waite. The Pagan tarot would be a better buy. Go get Raven Grimassi's "Well Worn Path" instead. With this deck you are asked nay expected to get Volume 2 "So Below" which I am sure is worse. The masochist in me says go get it. Own something you don't like and it will make you appreciate the rest ! It will add to your collection. Look there is that bunny again... and a cow. How obtuse can you become. This deck is like The Grimoire of Lady Sheba - full of errors and mistakes and idiocrasies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why buy cream when you can have advice., 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Late at night and the itch was intense. No way to a pharmacist even if some are open late. Can't call out the quack. Really bad in the crown jewels. Give this a go. (I won't tell you what the remedy is - go spend your 60p and find out). Simple solution in the kitchen. First application had me doing the Ooouch dance but once that wore off all was fine and hunky-dory. Don't waste your money on sprays and creams with giving this remedy a go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the thing !, 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love it. Just the thing to remove the hard skin that builds up on my foot. Great price too. The egg shape fits neatly into the hand and you can get the manoeuvrability to get in the crinkles. I like it so much I might just buy another one for the other foot. Good for grating Parmesan cheese for your Spag.Bol. but don't do the feet at the same time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs a good tablespoonful of taphophobia, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as folksy telling as the brothers Grimm. Not as lavish as the Disney cartoon. Not Goth enough and no real menace and blood gore and giblets. No Sorcery just pastiche pretend at scary. An omnium-gatherum that runs around and has no depth. Please give your thorns some Ouch when they prick. Evoke smells, touch, envy, jealously, wrinkle dust of creeping old age, fuzz of spell induced sleep, questing desires of Princes and real fear of somnolent rape of the Princess.
You can see it did not do it for me. It was supposed to be dark and Goth and all I got was retold Disney and nice. Sorry Alyne. Maybe the next one...

3.0 out of 5 stars Read it a second time., 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It could have been SO much better. When you get to the end (won't tell you) and you figure it out you will say the same. Much too sweet and "Magical" like a Barbie doll party. Poor wimpy Jake don't know if he is coming or going and neurotic Lenore is having vapours and blasting the shotgun, semi-automatic, Glock off at all of the self healing mirrors she finds. Must be the time of moon. The cat don't work - change it to a scrawny cockerel with one good eye. More brooding. More foreboding. More chemistry nay alchemy between the characters. Having the title character named after a fabric conditioner here in the UK doesn't quite help. Still at the price it is a snip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood and gold and lots of jewels, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The imagery is bold and vivid. The story telling is melodramatic and intense. Just what you need from Goth. And the blood blood blood. Well, it is about vampires. Don't buy this novella. Don't read it. Like the mirror you will be attracted to its spell. Too late. There you are (did I tell you about the secret of the comb?) completely hooked. And you will go on. one-click the next Kindle book, then the next. See you are entranced by her spell.


The Haunted Garden: Secret of the Memento Mori
The Haunted Garden: Secret of the Memento Mori

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghostly going on in DerbyShire - Where ?, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought I had posted a review before but it disappeared. Alyne DeWinter must have put the hex on negative reviews. Put the Fatima hand out to stop telling you the plot. I am not scared. I will write a review. Who is that Raven knocking at the pane ?
Vivid, glam, Goth, OTT (Over the top). That is why you will like it so much. That is why you will be attracted to her work.
Simon has been dumped by his girlfriend so he goes to Derby Shire to do himself in. He tries hypothermia on a park bench in the middle of a gorse moor, but instead finds a rambling relic ruins of a mansion and a crypt that is haunted by the ghost of Suzanne who killed herself awaiting her lover to battle through the plague wastes of England in the 1660's. This however is swinging 1966 and he meets Laura who turns of to be a Witch, then find out she is his cousin, then, and then. Enough of the plot give away. Beware the writing is intense and you will be waking up in the night with vivid dreams and shaking of the wrist.
A few glitches. Shall we tell ?. All part of the fascination like the "off" notes of Thelonious Monk, the Impasto of Van Gogh, "crust" of Oysters Rockafeller. No decimal currency in the 60's. Finding a pub open before 12 noon with the licensing laws of that time. Getting breakfast in the pub. We wish. You'd be thankful for watery wallop in a dirty glass. Bus drivers who give you explanations why the fare is "ten shilling" especially up North in laconic Derbyshire is a hoot ! And see if you can find the bit where he orders tea but drinks his coffee.
Meanwhile back at the story which rattles away at a grand pace or maybe that is the speed I am reading it. Riveted and want to learn what happens next. It is all based in fact. The village is in fact Eyam in Derbyshire that isolated itself during the plague and so many died. Doctors and dead gathers did wear the gull faced masks. Lyke-Wake is to keep watch over a dead body lest the fairies steal it away. Did Suzanne de Montmorency exist ?. Could be. Gorse is the whinnes that shall pricke thee to the bare bane. And Whinny-Muir is of course Whynnesmere.
Don't get this book. I know it costs less than one of those new fangled Starbucks coffee creations but you will get hooked. Addicted. Pop off to read just one more page. Have to see what happened to Simon. Where did Laura go ? What is Suzanne's secret. Did Christe receive her saule ?? You will get addicted. Be aware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldie but Goodie, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No it doesn't work. But that is on Windows 7. I have installed it on my Windows Vesta ? Vista ? Operating System and it works just fine. I have spend a good wasted hour playing with it this morning. Takes me back to my second childhood when I spent more time thumping the Carthaginians than doing any work. Spending hours figuring how to sack Moscow with its city walls and embedded soldiers. Changing the knights to all sorts and shapes. Modifying the transform terrain algorithm so you could build canals or reclaim land from the sea and wear down mountains. Forget version 5 or whatever is current - go back to the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars All I need now is the popcorn, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One big blockbuster afternoon in front of the telly or computer getting scared. The two films at once. Great stuff.
Ok if I have to get down to the nit-picky detail there were thing you had to read to book or go on line to figure out. Why did Dumbledore hand curl up and die ? What was the mirror shard all about ? Why did the goblets and rings multiply ? Who owned the camel and who smoked navy cut ? and other questions for the vivacious youth today.
