“I cannot believe the vast amount of both historical and current information contained on the HOPC website. Much included is extremely rare and would even if available cost a small fortune.The price of admission to the site would not even cover one item that is contained therein. Apart from all that is immediately ready to start reading there are more items being added daily,plus constant upgrades and improvements to the site.I cannot recommend the HOPC site enough and i also feel good knowing my subscription is helping to keep the HOPC site in operation for myself and others to enjoy.” -Peter Y.
