Friendly Dragon [Sep. 25th, 2006|11:20 am]
Tony Grist

The first shop we visited in the Piece Hall was a Pagan/New Age emporium called Friendly Dragon (Plug: if you're into that kind of thing they carry a huge stock- robes, athames, wands, figurines, books- you name it.). 

And, guess what? They had a couple of copies of our book* for sale. I thought it was out of print.

So Ailz asked the shop assistant if he'd like us to autograph a copy.

He went to fetch Jan the proprietor and from then on we were treated like celebs.

I felt like a bit of a fraud.

I was asking her about Derek Acorah's visit to the Piece Hall to film Ghost Towns. Such a nice man, she said. People- especially other mediums- run him down, call him a fraud, but she thinks it's because they're jealous.

That's sort of what I think too.

She has this great crystal bowl. You rub round its outer lips and it begins to moan. The moan builds and builds- and if you carried on with the rubbing it would would turn into an unbearable, banshee howl. What a fabulous object!

Want one.

I didn't know you wrote a book! It looks pretty :o)

(I always assumed Acorah was a fraud, but he also seems to me like an asshole, so that could have influenced me...)

Yes, lots of pretty pictures!

I don't think he's the most talented medium out there, but he's easily the most charismatic and/or telegenic. I find him rather endearing.

I'm a sucker for any show involving the paranormal.
