A speciality of Bibliophile is our editor/owner Annie's parents, Aileen Armitage and late step-father Deric Longden. Bibliophile has published several of their titles in eBook editions.

Our Editor Annie Quigley meets and makes friends with Gyles Brandreth at the Royal Warrant Holders Banquet, November 2016. They share a love of books and know people from the book trade. Gyles kindly agreed to sign his book WORD PLAY and we hope to stock his marvellous Oscar Wilde murder mystery series.


Susan Brewer


Sue and Annie have been friends for years as Sue has written thousands of blurbs for us over many years. Meantime she has written on Dolls and Girls Toys and Comics.

Alex Hamilton "Pooter" signed book

Remember the weekly literary column by Pooter in The Times before he defected to the Guardian? It was our dear friend Alex, pictured here with Annie at Bibliophile in 2015 signing his wonderful "bedside" book. It's a Who's Who of literary talent. Sadly Alex died just one year after this picture was taken and two weeks after Annie last saw him for lunch at his home with Stephanie. Cruelly, he had suffered with dementia.
