Or you can read a very short biography of DLS.
If you are interested in discussing the works of (or anything else about) DLS, there are several very good places to start (apart from this site, of course!). In fact, there are so many good places around that we’ve put links on a page of their own. If you know of any useful links to other pages which are relevant to DLS, her life, works, or indeed anything else vaguely related, please let us know.
If you have a question about DLS or her works, please ask us!
If what you find on this site encourages you to join, please mention that you found us on the Net when you write in!
(Don’t forget to check our News page for details of forthcoming events, including “stop-press” entries which have arrived since the latest Bulletin!)
17 December 2013: 6.30pm: An Evening with Jill Paton Walsh at Heffers bookshop, Trinity Street, Cambridge. The flyer can be downloaded here.
19 November 2013: 5.15pm: Harriet Walter, DBE delivered the 23rd annual Maynard Mack Lecture at Yale University, entitled “A Serious Job for a Woman?”, at Linsly-Chittenden Hall, Rm. 102, 63 High Street, New Haven, CT 06520, USA. More details here.
The Lord Peter Wimsey Companion: The Third (Online) Edition of The Lord Peter Wimsey Companion has been launched. It is available exclusively to members of the Society, so if you have been waiting for the LPWC and are not yet a member, why not join now and start using it straight away!
Stocks of the Second Edition, the last printed book edition, ran out several years ago. Please note that the Society has no plans to reprint it, or to produce any future edition in printed form, since the online format allows updates to be handled much more satisfactorily. Copies of both First and Second Editions may be available on the second-hand market, although be warned that they are often sold at massively inflated prices.
Archives ordering procedure. We have introduced some changes to the procedure for ordering items from the Society Archives, to reflect the latest advice on matters of copyright, and to allow us to respond more quickly to what has unfortunately become a regular increase in postal charges. For more details see here.
Credit card payment is available online for membership subscriptions and for some other items. Please see here for the options which are available for new and existing members for payment of subscriptions, and the publications page where many of the items have links for online payment.
