      It's a UK paperback series John, reprinting a number of Mike's works as well as those of other authors. Here's a link to the UK Amazon Elric listing:

        Hey there John,

        Its nice to see a new face around here. I think I have seen incarnations of your maps and should you manage to scan and upload them I would really love to take a look at them. Being visually oriented, I have always enjoyed looking at the layout of Melnibone, Pan Tang and the Young Kingdoms, particularly with my background as a gamer. I am quite dismayed about Chaosium's treatment of the people who basically have them a reason to exist, which is a shame since they really have no reason to be so ignorant. All in all, I just want to extend a thanks to you, who along with MM, have filled my imagination with many beautiful creations over the years.

          People interested in such things might get a kick out of the new 'old' map which Walter and I have done for the Young Kingdoms when they were still the Even Younger Tribes Out in Elric Number Three, which is shaping up nicely and has been worth waiting for from Walter!

            Hah! I have found the new comics you have done with Walt, and now have the means to purchase them. I look forward to seeing the new "old" map. Thanks for the heads up!

              Hello Mike, Kommando et al-Sorry for getting back to you all so late but I was travelling. Drove cross country with my son. (Mike ,I yelled "hello" while driving thru Texas-did you hear me?) Am working as quickly as time will allow to get some images together for a post-hopefully on Monday I'll be able to upload some. Since I was in a car for a bit (Geez-it's a big country) I've spent a lot of time looking at-guess what-maps. I can't seem to escape them. So I think there will be some revises to existing maps (I was never really happy with the Hawkmoon map) in the future and perhaps some new ones. Plus I'll include some "odds and sods" as it were - I've been digging thru some boxes in the attic.Always amusing to confront your earlier self. Strange ,while looking at some old New Worlds-I was thinking of Eduardo Paolozzi and then read of his death. How sad.
