Charlie Parker: a troubled private eye, whose investigations invariably turn to defeating supernatural evil. Connolly is a superb writer, whose books have successfully given me bad dreams.

P.S.: I say 'one' of the books I'm reading. At any one time, I will have five different books on the go. eg: 1: At work. 2: By my bed. 3: In the bathroom. 4: By my chair in the livingroom. 5: In the kitchen. All different sorts, fiction, non-fiction. I have done this for as long as I can remember.

It is worth watching if you can find it. It stars Roddy McDowall as a museum curator, whose relationship with his mother is definitely unhealthy... I like this movie a lot - it's slightly shonky, but it was made by a tiny film company. The Golem is very effective and is both creepy and menacing. The whole movie carries that peculiar 1960's British horror film 'chilliness' that can be deliciously experienced by watching many films of that era, such as 'X-The Unknown', 'The Day The Earth Caught Fire', 'The Night Caller', 'The Day Of The Triffids' amongst others.

He came in this month's 'Horror Block'. Weirdly, I thought the new Universal figures might feature - however, this was the only one I wanted. And here he is. I'm not sure which monster he's based on - Boris Karloff? Bela Lugosi? Lon Chaney Jr.? Glenn Strange? Doesn't really matter, I think he's very cool.

We got him! :)
