    I suggested the very same thing about some various JC editions a little further up this thread, and look where they are now.
    Yes! They made me a Chaos Engineer and told me to bloody well move them myself! :lol:

      Many thanks for those scans, Guy. Damon does a pretty neat line in architecture, doesn't he? :)

      And skies and seagulls and the like.

      Shame about the people!

      Nah, they're pretty good covers really. I'd favour a bit more action, or at least humanity, but they are good to look at; they perhaps do more to say "this book is a class act" than another pic of a guy with a sword.

        Right! Limbo is down to one page, thanks to the efforts of PWV and myself (mainly PWV.)
        There is a new folder in [broken link]Covers and Pages entitled [broken link]Published Interviews where a few items have been moved. There are also a few new additions to [broken link]Anthologies.
        You'll have to ask PWV what he moved where. Or better still go and have a look. There are some fantastic images in there!
        Both locations need tidying up a bit, which will be done. (Eventually!)

        Go on do your best, fill up Limbo again, and we'll find homes for it. (Again, eventually. :) )

                  Guv, go to the link I provided. Click on the smilie you want. That will take you to a page with just that emoticon. Copy the image path* of that emoticon and place it in your post using the [img] tag.

                  *You can copy the image path by right-clicking on the image and selecting "Copy Image Location" (or something similar, depending on your browser). Not sure what the process is on a Mac, but it can't be too much different.

                  I'd talked to Berry about getting more smilies added and he just doesn't have the time right now to work on that, so I thought this would be an OK fix for now.

                    Finally updated the Table of Contents

                    *whew* Finally got the [broken link]Image Gallery Table of Contents list updated! My, but it's becoming a huge list! [broken link]

                    Stuart (Guv) has really been busting his hump with the[broken link]creating all kinds of new categories and organizing a huge amount of images. The least I could do is update the bleedin' list of albums so everyone could get an idea of the immense scope of his undertaking! Just look at the collection of [broken link]French Edition covers he's put together! Wow!

                      I can't help but notice that other language editions are a bit scarce in comparison. I intend to make an effort to correct this as well as I can by trawling the net for images. Meanwhile I would encourage anyone who has them to add them to Limbo, with the proviso that the uploader look at the imformation displayed with the pictures and to follow the same format.
                      I'd like to add that it has been a total pleasure - Mike has had some fantastic covers wherever his work has been published.

                        Just to say I've uploaded Mike's 'Introduction' that appeared in issue 1 of the 'Saga of the Man Elf' comic. I've stuck it in the SotME gallery rather than in the 'Interviews' gallery, but it got me thinking: is there any mileage in scanning Mike's Introductions to other non-Moorcock books? For instance, I've got copies of Charles Harness' The Rose and Henry Treece's The Golden Stranger which both have introductions by Mike in them.

                        Would a) people be interested in reading what Mike has to say about other writers? and b) would Mike mind? A writer earns his living from his words and I'm wary about scanning blocks of text without first checking that Mike's happy about this.

                          I think Mike's intros and editorials make for great reading.

                          IIRC there are loads of the latter in New Worlds that we haven't scanned.

                          We don't want to take bread'n'butter out of the man's mouth, but on the other hand I don't see a "collected editorials and introductions of M Moorcock" being published any time soon, so I expect MM will be happy enough for us to do it.

                          I can list the issues of New Worlds, for example, which I have in a scannable state. And I just got The Great Captains by Treece with an MM intro. (I bought this for the Treece! The intro was a bonus!)

                            Guy, was that the copy that was up on eBay recently from 'bobshrunkle'? If so, then I saw that auction and was quite interested because (as mentioned above) I recently got the Savoy The Golden Strangers off eBay as well not so long ago, but when I saw the handle of the 'current bidder' I had a feeling it might be yours and didn't think it was worth getting into a bidding war with one of 'our own', so to speak. :)

                            Must say that Cawthorn's illustrations in the Treece are excellent, but also a little different from what I've seen from him before. Looks like he may have used some sort of duo-tone board to give a 'shading' effect to the drawings.

                              Correct me if I'm wrong Mike, but we have standing permission to post any and all of Mike's New Worlds stuff, though posting pieces from other writers is a bit iffy.

                              To Guy & Aral: Once I suggested we post all of the New Worlds covers and we said that wasn't really a good idea because we were focusing on Mike's stuff. Now I remember why I suggested it: Mike owns New Worlds. Perhaps we can have an album that collects them all, including perhaps dupes (not neccesary) as a repository for prosperity. Thoughts?

Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

                                I personally feel that any pre MM-edited New Worlds covers in the gallery should be Moorcock-related, but others may feel differently.

                                On the subject of the Treece intros, I have a couple of them that are detached from the original Savoy editions and could therefore be scanned easily, subject to Mike's permission. Slightly foolishly I disposed of the books themselves several years ago but kept the introductions (!). I'd like to get the books back again at some point, but it does mean I can scan the intros without damaging the books... :roll:
