  • I've harvested a load of Russian editions of Mike's work and placed them in Limbo. (Thanks to Ian Covell for the link - http://www.ozon.ru/context/book_cata...atalog/1072097).

    I'm put the English titles in the entries where known, but since the site I got them from is written in the Russian cyrillic script - and since my Russian is non-existent - there's quite a few covers where I haven't managed to identify what they actually. Any Russian readers might like to check them out at:

    • All the Russian editions are now in their own album in the Non-English editions album and can be viewed [broken link]here

      Any help with translations of the unidentified titles will be gratefully received.

      • Uploaded a bunch of proper scans (as opposed to harvested stuff from the Internet) into Limbo tonight. There's three all-new scans and three better quality (larger) scans of some stuff that's already present.

          • Just been browsing in the Gallery and saw this rather nice colour pic of Mike that I've not seen before, not sure how long it's been there:

            [broken link]

            Anyone know where it was taken, when it dates from etc (mid 60s I imagine)? Be nice to have some more details on the photos submitted if anyone can supply them, either at the time of submission or later.

                • Thanks to eBay I've obtained, scanned and uploaded the Jerry Cornelius book covers to the German album [broken link]

                  [broken link][broken link][broken link][broken link][broken link]

                  I've added the first two covers to their existing albums and created new albums for the other three covers, although those aren't in alphabetical order yet. (The Entropie-Tango novel also includes the German version of The Distant Suns.)

                  I'm now left with an interesting problem. I have these five german-language editions of the JC novels, but I can't read German, so there's not much point my keeping them. Any German readers here interested in acquiring these books? If so, please let me know. :)

                  • I've scanned and uploaded Mike's Introduction to Iain Sinclair's Lud Heat, which apart from being 'a great fusion of prose and verse' was also an inspiration for and influence on Alan Moore's From Hell graphic novel.

                    [broken link]

                    On a more personal note, I've scanned and uploaded a postcard that Mike sent me in 1992 in response to a Jerry Cornelius story I'd given him at a book signing (for Death Is No Obstacle/Jerusalem Commands if memory serves).

                    [broken link]

                    Notice that it's not the first postcard from Mike to be uploaded to Limbo. Wonder where the best place for them to go in the IG would be?

                    PS. No takers for the German JC books mentioned previously yet, so unless I hear from anyone in the next week or so, I'll try my luck with them on eBay.

                    • Hi demos,

                      That postcard is very impressive. :D

                      Good job on the image gallery too, I view it often and just when I think I find something that is not in there, I spot the image. :lol:

                      I see now that I don't have the fraction of the material that is out there. :)

                      I'll finish what I have first then try to find the rare items. It gives me something to keep an eye out for from now on.

                      Thanks to all chaos engineers and everyone here. ;)

                        I've scanned and uploaded two images of the 'A Winter Admiral' short story that appeared in the Daily Telegraph (see 'Moorcock on eBay' thread for details).

                        [broken link][broken link]

                        Because the story's relatively recent (9 years old), and as it's still available in Mike's London Bone collection, the 'full page' scan is really more of a large 'thumbnail', i.e. it gives you enough detail to see the layout, etc. without being actually readable (hopefully).

                        The second image is a fairly large scan of the illustration that accompanied the story.

                          • Are those the White Wolf's Son scans Ken? Of course they are wanted, along with anything else not already in the Gallery (or better scans of ones already there).

                            demos, I see you have uploaded Mike's letter to the TLS regarding the Naked Lunch. This can go with the cover scan I did ages ago of the Calder edition of Naked Lunch (is that where your scan came from?) I wondered if we shouldn't have a separate Letters album in the Covers and Pages section, where we can move any scans of magazines and books containing letters from Mike? The Naked Lunch cover scan is currently sitting in the Miscellaneous section:

                            [broken link]

                            We could also move the scans of Speculation and Zenith Speculation and letters from Sexton Blake Library there. Some are sitting in the Other Magazine Appearances album:

                            [broken link]

                            I have a number of other magazines with letters from Mike that could be added, although I might not be able to scan the letters themselves, it depends on the binding.

                              Yes, the scans I meant are the ones of The White Wolf's Son. I'll go through all my old books to see if I can fill some gaps too :)

                              • Aral, am I right in think you uploaded the Melvyn Vanishing Tower cover to Limbo? And the Daw Books' Steel Tsar? If so, :clap: . I've been looking for a decent-sized scan of the VT book and had so far failed to find one, and I'd no idea the Daw book even existed. :)

                                Oh, and I meant to reply earlier:

                                The cover of my The Naked Lunch that I scanned Mike's letter from has a different cover to the one you provided. My edition is the 1986 Paladin edition, with a painted cover by Mark Foreman. Since it's the letter that's significant I didn't think there was any point uploading the cover as well.
