In his book "Down Under", Bill Bryson states that Sir Eugene Goosens was caught going through Australian customs with a "large and diversified collection of pornographic material". However, I seem to remember he was caught with black magic paraphenalia such as black candles etc. Whether pornographic material was included I am not sure.
Am I being pedantic? Does it matter? You tell me.
