Next time someone suggests that my obsession with Dickens borders on unhealthy, I'm going to point them to this guy. He makes me look tame! (My word, how I'd love to get a look at his collection . . . )
And here's a lovely story about another longtime fan and Dickens Fellowship member, who's celebrating her 100th birthday as Dickens has his 200th. And like him, she's from Portsmouth. May she have a wonderful year!
