“I think you have a great website keep up the good work.
“Great Work fun site”
I love your site!
You can imagine my astonishment when I opened my presents on Christmas day to find your latest issue of The Stand Magazine. The reason is that during the past several months I have been reading some rare 1897 to 1903 issues of The Strand Magazine purchased several years ago in a used book shop. As you mentioned in your history article on this web site, these old issues contain some of the stories by the very best Victorian fiction writers as well as regular features like “”Curosities””, “”The Pick of Punch”” and so on! While these old issues are bound in book form, the covers are very fragile and I’m almost afraid to read the stories in case the books falls apart. I’m really pleased with your Christmas 2002 issue and will order all the back issues, as well as all future issues. Thank you for bringing back such a wonderful magazine and giving the public a chance to read good literature. And, I really like the book review section because I can then make a learned selection when next at the mystery section of the book store. One last comment, I really enjoyed Mike Ashley’s very scholarly article on ghost stories of the past. As an avid reader of Victorian and Edwardian literature, I’ve read many of the stories mentioned in his article and it was nice to read such a well researched article.

“Just subscribed to The Strand a few days ago, and have ordered some of the back issues. I had thought the magazine was no longer in print, until I happened across your web site. I was thrilled to know that it is now being published again. Thank you so much! I love the web site, and am sure I will love the magazine. Keep up the good work. Lisa.”,
