    I wasn't teasing. But I think I now have it.

    Although I thing that the middle part might have been better described as "a special annual or semiannual court in which the lords of certain manors had jurisdiction over local disputes" - a leet, giving low-leet-a or Lolita

    Sorry, Steve. We can't all be as perfect as you are, you know.



    You got it, despite the appalling inadequacy of my clue. Respect, mate.

    I don't know yet if I am right, but, if so I have one! (I think..)



    (Flenched minor) of the species.



    The first bit is an anagram. It has been a short story, a novel and a film.



    (This may be rubbish and hard because I just made it up and I don’t actually know really what I am supposed to do. But my daughter is ill and I am going quietly mad. But try it anyway.)

    The ending of a short story.......



    And so the men from the caravans found them, the Fat Man and the girl in black with a baby in her arms racing round and round on their mechanical steeds to the ever-increasing music of the organ.



    And another one ( from a different author ).....the opening:



    C'est curieux, Monsieur, dit l'inspecteur Beebel, consid�rant Carrados avec le respect pensif dont il faisait toujours montre envers l'amateur aveugle; c'est vraiment curieux, mais de nos jours on dirait qu'il ne peut rien se produire � l'�tranger qui ne laisse de traces � Londres m�me, si vous prenez la peine de bien regarder.

    Well that one is "After the Fair" by Dylan Thomas

    A lovely story from a great writer who paints pictures with words

    And that must be one of the Max Carrados stories, but I've only read a few of those. Could I guess, The Bravo of London?

    Wow

    Actually I have no idea if that is correct or not - but it sounds right.





    (I hope I'm doing this right) " Call me Ishmael" began the Techno DJ's appendage (and great nephew of the author.)

    (clue: it is a bit rude and not a quote - but cryptic. )
