    100 Great Detectives-HC/DJ

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/100-Great-Dete...QQcmdZViewItem

    Jakubowski, Maxim (editor). 100 Great Detectives. NY: Carrol; & Graf, 1991. First American Edition. This is a Book of the Month Club edition that is in fine condition in a fine condition dust jacket. Features one hundred authors writing about their favorite detectives. Includes Michael Moorcock on Albert Campion, Bill Pronzini on Sharon McCone, Julien Symons on Sam Spade, and 97 others.


    Starting bid: US $3.00 (Approximately آ£1.70)
    Time left: 3 days 18 hours
    Ends: 24-Dec-05 17:02:32 GMT
    Start time: 17-Dec-05 17:02:32 GMT
    History: 0 bids
    Item location: Alliance, Ohio

    I'd be interested in reading Mike's thoughts on Campion (didn't Peter Davsion play him on TV at one time?), but the shipping on a hardback book to the UK means I'll probably only bid if no one else does before the auction ends.

    The Chronicles of Count Brass boxed set is up on eBay again; the one with the wrong name (should be Chronicles of Castle Brass, of course). Later editions corrected the mistake.

    If there is anyone who still needs this oddity (and lord knows I've banged on about it often enough; apologies if this is getting stale!) it's here, at a reasonable starting price:

    2 out of 3 ain't bad, Demos! Good luck with the search for a reasonably priced 156.

    Yes, I'd bide my time demos, you might well find it a lot cheaper elsewhere. Well done on the other two. I made an impulse bid and won 160 to replace a naff copy I got in a job lot a month or two back. There are only a couple of Compact New Worlds I need now, one of which is 162 which the same seller had up last week, but I was outbid.

    Thanks Guy. Well, I managed to bag NW157 & NW158, but the NW156 went for آ£16+ in the end and I couldn't justify maybe needing to spend آ£20+ just to get it. :(

    Guess I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for another copy.

    (Bloody Pratchett - why couldn't he remain unknown and poor? :x ) :P

    I've spotted two minor revisions within the first few paragraphs, so the text has definitely been revised; these are minor things which look like Americanisation.

    I've reminded myself that the ending "...and were soon rolling about in bed together" was famously cut for the US edition.

    My guess is no major reviosns but no time to check!

    Hope you're tuning in here, Demos! About 20 minutes to go!

    Eek! I dunno. If I'm home it time I'll check the texts swiftly, but at the moment I'm still at work and time is ticking away... !!

    I'm with Aral... everyone should have a set of New Worlds! But I speak as one who has somehow manged to bag the Prattshit issues of NW and SF at reasonable prices without even knowing they were "special"... clearly neither did the seller in either case... sheer dumb luck.

    I knew they were special, really of course... that lovely Peake homage cover, a James Colvin novel... pretty special!

    I think the Ace edition was edited down from the original, but am not 100% sure. If you can get any of those New Worlds issues for a reasonable price I'd bag 'em anyway, but yes the issue with the Pratchett story may well go right up. I used to have a spare copy of that issue but I think I sold it a few years ago.

    Guy or Aral,

    In a little under 8 hours there are three auctions on eBay ending for New Worlds 156, 157, and 158, (respectively) which contain Mike's original "Wrecks of Time" serial. Is there any fundemental differences between that version and the version that appeared as the Ace Double paperback in the US (backed with Tramontane by Emil Petaja)? I've got an inkling that the serial was revised for the UK 'Rituals of Infinity' edition (in '71?), but I'm not sure whether to bid on the NW editions.

    Since the Sainted PTerry has a story in NW156 I expect that one may well end up in double figures, so before I start bidding on any of them, I'd like to know whether there's any point (since I already have the Ace Double). :?

    We know this one is hard to get, containing as it does Terry Pratchett's first published story.
    This copy reached آ£21.00 and didn't reach its reserve price.

    It has now been re-listed, reached آ£40.00, and still not reached its reserve!

    This time the seller claimed that neither Pratchett nor his agent owns a copy, later adding that he has heard an unconfirmed rumour that Terry might actually have one! :)

    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. :)

    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
