I concluded that I was already close to development to exhaustion in my normal processing described above.

    Maybe it's just a matter of ethics. Gordon H. took all the trouble to revive interest in pyro, came up with the first popular, convenient modern tweak, and to my knowledge receives no royalties on sales of the chemistry, which he gave us the recipe for anyway. I can't image he got rich over this, with the occasional workshop or print sale. So he certainly deserves a little monetary reward from people buying the book. Besides, it's got some interesting anecdotal historical information and safety notices. And he's never been one to discourage experimenting with later
    formulas concocted by others.

    He didn't revive the interest in Pyro. Wimberley did.

    They both did. Wimberley started it; Hutchings gave it a significant upward push. PMK is what got me to try pyrogallol.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    I remember that he used to sell the book direct by mail order. That's how I bought my copy.

    I wonder if that's still the case.

    Sorry, I was confused. I thought you were attempting to use it again for a second roll.
