About/ Special thanks to
Welcome to your Daily NEL, an illustrated bibliography in progress, no less, the objects of our attention being the New English Library and Four Square paperbacks of the 1960’s and ’70’s.
To begin with, i’m concentrating on the horrors with a pinch of Black Magic & Witchcraft non-fiction thrown in. Depending on how we go, we might branch out into other genres once the blood and guts dries up, but that won’t be happening for a while.
Several people contributed to this site-blog via the NEL section of the Vault forums old and new, the bulk of the material used here coming in a frenzied burst of activity during our early days. The threads The Nel Horror Reviews and Nel Horrors: How Many? in particular reveal who was the real driving force behind all this stuff, and it certainly wasn’t me, so it seems only right to dedicate this to those who diid the cover scanning, blurb supplying, list-compiling, review providing graft. Primary among them:
Franklin Marsh, A. C. Mason, Steve Goodwin, Adrian Salmon, Rob Matthews, Andy Veasey, Jeremy Good, Andy Boot, Justin Marriott, Funkdooby, H. P. Saucecraft, Charles Black, Bushwick, Andreas Decker, Sara, Curt Purcell, George Barnes, Roger Pile.

special thanks to chrissie for allowing me permission to reproduce her artwork.
More names to follow should i be able to persuade them that appearing on here is the massive break they’ve been waiting for.
Respectfully dedicated to the memory of Peter Haining
