    Seems to me you should just put up a permanent link to a site like this one (which you posted a while back, Berry). (I suppose the owner's pwermission should be sought) :

      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. :)
      Yes, that was me; well spotted! And thanks for not bidding against me. I'm all in favour of not bidding against each other, unless one of us has already been outbid by an outsider and made it clear that the item has gone out of his/her price range.

      Aral Vilsn and I already have an informal arrangement of this sort. (I've also got one with a US Sunday comics dealer; we trade pages off eBay when we get duplicates, he gets first dibs at the US auctions.)

      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.
      Yes, I noticed the same thing with the Duo-Tone board. I used it myself a fair bit in the 1980s but id became very hard to get hold of after that. Not sure Cawthorn's style was really suited to it, though. IMHO he should have gone the other way; starker B&W, forget the grey tones. (But it was such fun to use Duo-Tone!)

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:
        This seems to illustrate a very Multiversal kind of truth; every cloud has a silver lining, and every silvery thing has a cloud hanging around it.

        BTW, plenty of copies of The Great Captains on ABE at the moment:

          I suspect Great Captains can even be bought new in the Savoy edition. Check the site. I know there are some Treece and JT Story books still in print from Savoy.

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

              Unfortunately, Mike, the Savoy sites lists all four Treece books as being 'Out of Print'. :(

                The Treece books are great. I currently have The Great Captains and Red Queen, White Queen and could do scans if required. Last time I looked at the Fantasy Centre's list there was a complete set for sale, in case anyone's interested.

                  Yus, I thought of that just after I posted, Berry.

                  Comes back to time and bandwidth, plus I don't know if any of us has all the NW issues to scan (I certainly don't though I have acquired a random sampling over the years).

                  Maybe since Mike owns the copyright (?) we could "borrow" the scans from that other site???

                    Through a stroke of luck, a copy of Tarzan Adventures I won on ebay that was listed as Vol 7 No 23 turned out to be Vol 7 No 22, which features the first Sojan story Sojan The Swordsman. I've scanned the cover and title page in the Limbo album:

                    [broken link]

                    I've also put in a comment mentioning that the story first appeared in Burroughsania (although it seems to have been expanded slightly as well as being retitled). Nice cover on this Tarzan Adventures issue, anyone know who did it?

                    I've also just noticed that Hantor as it is in the original story publication is changed to Hatnor for the later book reprints. Any reason why Mike? Just curious...

                    p.s I didn't win any of the Les Spinge issues (twas me who put the first bids in), although I bid over آ£10 for each issues. Sad, but I'm sure they'll turn up elsewhere. We could use the always the ebay images for the Gallery since I won't be scanning these now :(

                      I've also uploaded some more scans of reviews from SFX ranging from 1995-2000, which can be found in 'Published Interviews' as before:

                      [broken link][broken link]

                      I've also added a full-page advert for Silverheart that appeared in SFX, which by uncanny chance features Mike's current avatar. Not too sure where this should go. I've put it in 'Published Interviews' (page 4) for the time being, but maybe it should be moved (back to Limbo? or to the Silverheart covers?)

                        At the risk of jumping the gun - because I don't think we've heard from Mike as to whether or not he's happy for us to proceed with the suggestion of scanning his Introductions to other writer's books - I have taken the unilateral step of creating an album for 'Introductions' and uploaded the two Intros I have for 'The Golden Strangers' and 'The Rose'. Really this is just to see what they might look like and how we might produce others if Mike gives the okay to go ahead.

                        If not, then it'll be quite a simple matter just to delete the album and the photos therein. :)

                          Sorry -- that's fine if you want to reproduce introductions to other writers' works. After all, I only do the intros if I like the writers, so the more people who hear about them the better!

                            I've located one of my detached Treece introductions. I have another couple somewhere I think, but have put them in a safe place and now can't find them, as you do. The one I've found is dated August 1978 and is sort of a general overview of Treece's work. Only trouble is I'm not sure which book it's from. Anyone know? It starts 'By making living men of his historical characters Treece joined the small group of novelists who used the historical romance for moral and literary purposes of their own' If anyone knows which one it is I'll scan it up.
                            'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T.
