  • Foreign Moorcock in Limbo

    I've found some more foreign editions of Mike's work on the 'Net, but I need help confirming their country of origin.

    I think the first lot on pages 4-5 are Portuguese.

    I think the second batch on page 5 are Czech.

    I think the third batch on pages 5-6 are Hungarian. (Would be useful if Oren Douek could confirm that.)

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Also some more Russian covers in page 6 and 7, but I've no idea which titles they are.

    Demos99,

    The following books are translations to portuguese of Mikeآ´s works.

    (The three above are the "Mars/Kane Trilogy")

    They are in Portuguese and were published in Portugal not Brazil.

      Great work again, demos. I'll leave them in Limbo for a while this time. :)

      I wonder if L'etranger could help with confirmation of the suspected Hungarian ones. He has helped before with the sole image of Hungarian origin which is already in the gallery.

      (I wonder if Mike still remembers his Russian from his Pyat research. He may be able to help if he does.)
      You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

        It might be helpful to have the original URLs for the covers perhaps?

        Portuguese covers = http://www.geocities.com/carlosdepor...c_moorcock.htm

        Czech(?) covers = http://www.laser-books.cz/fantasy.html & http://www.laser-books.cz/scifi2.html

        Hungarian covers = http://www.fantasya.hu/biblio/mbet.html

        Russian covers = http://www.ladoshki.com/?books&author=135

        Hope that helps some.

          Another Lindahn. Always good to see.

          The Lord of the Spiders cover looks especially interesting.

          I must say the rest of the Russian covers are pretty forgettable.

            That looks like one of the samizdat Russian covers, before they became 'official'. Better covers now. Problem with some of those copies done by enthusiasts in Russia was that the translations weren't all that good and in the early days of Russian free market they got used anyway, since piracy was prevalent.

              Mike, the link to the Russian covers that I posted above appears to be offering the texts as ebooks for Palms and Pocket PCs. Is this 'official' as far as you know or another example of Russian piracy?

              (If the latter I'll edit my post to remove the link.)
