Dear friends -

                After a very long time away, I am returning to duty
                on the Web tomorrow, on my website. The
                "Editor's Day" feature
                will re-commence on the Hitchcock Scholars
                website's News & Comment (Home)
                page. Also coming soon will be a page on the
                same website
                devoted to "Hitchcock and [the novelist] Dickens",
                material from "Editor's Day"
                written as long ago as 1998 but going
                much, much further. It will take some inspiration
                from Grahame Smith's
                'Dickens and the Dream of Cinema'
                (2003) which I am currently reading and enjoying.

                But - please - do not think of the said website as
                either narrow and esoteric,
                on one hand, nor trivial and
                beneath your dignity, on another hand, nor yet
un-entertaining and lacking in
                inspiration, on yet another hand
                (use your friend's hand if your own are already
accounted for). I will do my
                utmost to steer a course that
                caters to a generous assortment of Hitchcockians and
film aficionados and
                their inclinations.

                Just reading some past "Editor's Day" entries from
previous years recently,
                made me very aware of how much
                valuable stuff came from our readers, often on an almost
daily basis. So I am
                hoping that you will start tuning
                in again regularly and won't think twice about asking a
question, passing a
                remark, or tossing your hat into the
                circle. The heading of this email is asking you not to
be inhibited about it.
                My email address will also be
                found at the top of this message.

                Have a good year.

                Sincerely - Ken Mogg (Ed., 'The MacGuffin').

                P.S. 'The MacGuffin' #29 (hardcopy) comes out this month
and contains really
                good stuff. But I will not blow
                trumpets about it here. With you, if you're a serious
Hitchcockian, a wink is as good as a clarion call.  (Wink!)
