    Yes thanks, demos, I bid on that one too, but it's going up...

      _"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."

          Here's an interesting item: Beyond the Eternal Champion: Fantasies of Michael Moorcock



          http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Beyond-the-Ete...QQcmdZViewItem

          "Beyond the Eternal Champion: Fantasies of Michael Moorcock" by David Connell is the seventh book/pamphlet in the Babel handbooks series of critical studies on Fantasy and Science Fiction writers. The book/pamphlet was published by Nimrod Publications in 1999 with a recommended retail price of $10. It is 32 pages long and is new.

            One more item that's a bit out of the ordinary:

            unpunched 1977 ELRIC fantasy game



            http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

            Elric is based on the character by Michael Moorcock written by Greg Stafford and published by Chaosium in 1977. Although the game is based on a series of short stories and novels, it is not necessary for a player to be familiar with the book to enjoy the game.....yet, Elric fans will find delight in their familiarity. New players may even find themselves at an advantage in a lack of bias towards characters presented here.

            This game is complete, unpunched, and in very good condition as it has been kept in a plastic sleeve for years. The large card of counters has loosened from its outer frame, but has not been punched or played. It is getting harder to find, especially in this good condition. A good playing game and a good collectible.

              The above Chaosium board game looks similar (yet slightly different) to the Avalon Hill board game in the Image Gallery, btw.

                Seller in Australia (booksglen457) has a load of Science Fantasy and some Science Fiction Adventure magazines on eBay at the moment.

                I've put bids on a couple of Moorcock-related issues, but there may be other issues of interest to a collector. (Lots of Ed McBain books too.)

                    There's an Uncorrected Proof copy of 'The White Wolf's Son' on eBay at the moment. Since the book came out earlier this year, I guess it's okay to publicise this (unlike the Vengeance of Rome proofs, which we want to publicise for entirely different reasons.) Not picture, sorry.

                    This auction is for a new and unread advanced reader's copy (uncorrected proof) copy of The The White Wolf's Son by Michael Moorcock . The book is in mint condition. This is a softcover...not a hardcover edition.

                      This one looks quite interesting and the price isn't that bad either. I'd be interested in bidding on this myself unless anyone else is also interested.
