      • I've just made an impulsive bid on this hardback copy of The New SF:

        http://offer.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll

        A book I've treasured since the 70s in paperback; if I "win" this copy it will be my third (& final) extravagant Xmas gift to self this year!

          • I'm having this, it looks pretty obscure. I hope no-one minds. I'll post scans when I eventually get hold of it.

                Guy, I've contacted you off-site about the Speculation issue via email. If you are able to check your email could you get back to me? Thanks.

                        • again, I must say, I love all that old artwork on all those books.


                          Lemec walks off to check his e-bay account, thinking of getting some nice MM items to enjoy in 2006.


                          Hey, did anyone ever check that new 'Overstock' place for books? I heard they were going to have an e-bayesque auction.

                          • Parenthetically, I "won" that copy of The New SF, signed by MM, B.Aldiss and J.Ballard; what an artefact! In lovely nick too. I'm not normally very interested in signed books, but this is a choice set of 3 in one!

                            I'm posting to comment on that last batch of New Worlds auctioned by Wetballs; they fetched pretty good prices, better than usual; I wonder if it was the (apparently) very good condition they were in? I was tempted but left the field open as I have all of them (though probably not in such good nick) and I've been spending a little too freely of late.

                            I also got a Hawkwind tour programme (1974) in the mail today. It's a pretty slim volume. Most of its pages are taken up by Mike's short story A Dead Singer. I wonder what Hawkfans made of that?

                            It also has a short piece on the Deep Fix (the band, not the book) which I will post as an image IDC. I expect I'll put it in Magazines.

                            • Must check out this thread more often, I missed both the London Magazine issue and the Radio Times :( These are the sort of obscurities I'm generally chasing now. Oh well, I won the Speculation and an issue of Niekas from the same seller. I see demos won one of the Radio Times - do you have it yet? I'd like to see a scan

                              • Aral, oddly enough I've arranged with the eventual purchaser of the London Magazine this week to provide us with scans of the Moorcock essay for the Image Gallery. Hopefully I should have them before long and will upload them as soon as I can.

                                I also have the Radio Times issue and will upload scans later this weekend. :)
