  • Moorcock on eBay

    I was on e-bay and saw there is an autographed copy of Byzantium Endures with draft. That is so cool. I thought I'd post the link in case you all did not see it.

    Moorcock on eBay

    Since we've had a number of threads recently about rare copies of Mike's work on eBay (Sleeping Sorceress, Lives and Times, Science Fantasy, etc.) perhaps it would be more organised if we had a general thread for eBay alerts?

    (Alerts about Proofs of Vengeance should be reported in the Vengeance of Ebay thread of course.)

    Only a thought. Anyway...

    Just spotted a copy of the 1st ed. hardback of The Transformation of Miss Mavis Ming on eBay. Ex-library copy, just over a day to go, no bids, starting bid آ£1.99. UK postage آ£1.80.

    Nice cover by Rodney Matthews.
    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

        Excellent idea, and well done for finding these items.

        I may well go for the Mavis Ming if no-one else is mad keen.

          Congrats, Demos, on adding Science Fantasy 63 (first appearance of the Elric story Sad Giant's Shield) to your collection.

          Ain't eBay grand?

            Here's a nice HB (not first) edition with a low starting price:

            And here's a DJ-less first edition (Mike's first "novel" in HB I believe) with a fairly odd reader's addition:

              A couple of bids have gone in from me on items mentioned, thanks for the notice chaps. If you want to bid on the Mavis Ming Guy, feel free. I have a nice Legends From The End Of Time, but no hardback Ming, but as you expressed an interest first I'll give you the option of bidding if you want it.

                There's a first edition of the Earl Aubec collection currently standing at آ£29.00!

                http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

                Is it really worth that much? It's a relatively recent book and fairly easy to get in paperback.

                  I suspect it's collectors who want the full set of omnibus editions.
                  Also, it's the only more or less complete collection of shorts (including the short novel Golden Barge). Strange what does and doesn't fetch high prices, though... :)

                      I'm ashamed to say I forgot the Mavis Ming was ending yesterday and some other lucky soul snapped it up for آ£3.21.

                      I hold myself fully responsible for this appalling state of affairs and will wear sackcloth and ashes for a week.

                      Next time Aral had better have first dibs on Mavis.

                        I shamed myself similarly when I missed a non-library cancel copy of Mavis Ming for آ£4.99. I look horrible in sackcloth. :lol:

                        The only other copies I've ever seen (other than ex-library copies) run over $75. On the bright side, I bought my ex-library copy for $2.50.

                          AS Guy hadn't bid, I did actually put a bid in for Mavis Ming but didn't want to go tooo high as it was an ex-library book.

                          If anyones' interested there are several copies of the Elric Of Melnibone graphic novel up at the moment. I've bagged one already:
