Welcome to this cyberplace, set up as a space for news and reviews of A Gentleman of Pleasure and occasional jottings about John Glassco. Five years have now passed since publication, and I've moved on to other projects, but I'm leaving this up with the thought that those drawn to Glassco's writing will find something of interest.

John Glassco in John Willie's Bizarre?

Dear old Bizarre! It was an oasis back in the dreary fifties. Yes, I remember the wonderful photo of Mlle. Polaris, the Queen of the Wasp-waists, in her extraordinary corset, which John Willie unearthed and reprinted. I contributed a letter to his correspondence column. He was a Pioneer. 
– John Glassco, letter to Geoffrey Wagner, 3 December 1968
Just posted over at The Dusty Bookcase, details of my attempt to track down Glassco's Bizarre letter for The Heart Accepts It All, and what I found.

Were J. Foster and J. Glassco of Foster, Quebec one and the same?

The letter is here.
