Yeah, that's true! I've seen a copy of it at a second-hand sales event a few weeks ago. It's a copy
of Beste Verhalen 7 (BV 7), with all the lettering changed to the dialect form. My first impression
of it made me think it was from South Africa! :-) (For those of you living in Limburg, please don't
be offended...) If I had known you never saw it Harry I would've bought it...
