    London Magazine December 1975/January 1976 Volume 15, Number 5

    Includes eleven page essay by sc-fi writer Michael Moorcock called "Patriotism and the Scientific Romance".
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/London-Magazin...QQcmdZViewItem

    Starting bid: آ£1.99
    Time left: 5 days 19 hours
    Ends 29-Nov-05 18:12:30 GMT
    Item location: Cheltenham, UK

    Anyone else interested on this? I'm inclined to put a modest bid on this one. Has the essay been reprinted anywhere else?
    _"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 one for Guy and/or Aral I suspect:

      Boys World Comic - 48 issues

      48 Issues of Boys World comic published by Odhams in 1963 and 1964. Boys World ran for only 89 issues before merging with Eagle. All issues contain the "What Would You Do?" series, many of which were written by the novelist Michael Moorcock. Some issues contain the series "Do You Know Your Name?" also written by Michael Moorcock. Volume 1, No. 21 contains the story "The Mountain", which although uncredited is thought to be by Moorcock. Most (if not all) issues contain the strip "Wrath of the Gods" by Ron Embleton.

      Issue No's included are : - Vol. 1 no's 1, 2, 3, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 45, 48 and 49; Vol. 2 no's 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 16, 20, 24, 31, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37 and 39.

      The condition is variable, all are well read. Most of them are frayed around the edges and show signs of yellowing commensurate with age. A small percentage have tears and some have the delivery address marked on the edge. Nevertheless, a good oppurtunity to get hold of copies of a rare and sought after comic, of particular interest to Moorcock and Embleton collectors.

      Happy bidding, chaps! :)

      EDIT: Seller is 'DeeBee', resident of this site, who is also auctioning his Jim Cawthorn drawing mentioned in this thread > [broken link]

      He also has some New Worlds up (in the 180s range) that I'm going to keep my eye on.

        Hey, there's even some Moorcock/Embleton collaborations out there, pards... Kit Carson, as I recall. The Embleton brothers had a thing about rain for a while and I came to believe they could make the desert bloom. I recall one story set in Arizona where it rained cats and dogs the whole time... :)

          Do You Know Your Name?

          More importantly Do You Know Your Bank Balance?

          Do You Know If You Have The Shelf Space?

          That's a lovely batch to bid on, alright; some very nice Embleton pages, some Bellamy (I think; not sure without checking), definitely lots of Luis Bermejo.

          If you haven't got 'em, Mike, I'd definitely get bidding. A rare opportunity. Various kind souls around here could probably start filling your gaps (oo er missus etc.).

          If no-one else around here wants to bid, I will, as I have a few gaps that will be filled by this lot (and I will start passing on my seconds thereafter).

          On the bank balance side, this set could go very high in آ£آ£آ£/$$$. To the right bidder even later issues (let alone no. 1 and other earlies) have been selling for upwards of آ£8.00 each lately (I know, I've been one of the sad souls outbid).

          Thanks very much for passing the news on early, Demos.

            I think I'll pass, Guy. I have an aversion to paying lots of dosh for my own old comics. I'll wait in hope (probably very slim these days) of spotting a batch in a thrift shop some day. Thanks, though.

              Not a MM book (although Mike provided introductions for the Savoy editions) but an author whom Mike admires and recommends.

                  That's wild. Those figures would make a nice gift. :)

                    The issues #180 to #184 that DeeBee has up for sale are some of the rarest. In fact, #182 and #184 are probably harder to find than the 'banned issue', so I'd bid if I were you Demos! (If you don't bid and they remain at a low price, I might fancy them myself as reading/scanning copies - but I'll stay out if you or any of the other regulars bid.)

                      I've put a bid in for the Treece. The Boys World set is interesting, but first and foremost I'd like the issue including The Mountain. I might keep an eye of those New Worlds, although I've picked up quite a few large format issues this year.

                            eBay seller "applecroft" (who I think might be a MM regular - or maybe I've just dealt with them before :? ) has a number of Moorcock items up over the next 7 days:

                            Factions anthology containing 'A Dead Singer' by MM.
                            The Megaflow Manifesto Volume 1, Number 1 (which I'll probably bid on myself)
                            Fantasy Tales Volume 9, Number 17 containing 'The Last Call' by MM.
                            Michael Moorcock’s Stormbringer by James Cawthorn - graphic novel
