  • New Worlds in Image Hive

    I've uploaded some extra Carnell-era NW covers for issues featuring work by Mike to the Image Hive - see here - as well Mike's Profile from NW 129 which he guested edited, Ted Carnell's farewell editorial in NW 141 where he officially announces that Mike is taking over NW, and Mike's letter in NW 141 in praise of Carnell and the importance of NW continuing.

    I've also uploaded scans of Mike's Guest Editorial for NW 129 to the "Introductions" album.

    In due course, I'd like to have scans of all Mike's credited Editorials for NW in this album (separate from the NW covers album), although scanning the various issues might be easier said than done.

    If anyone can provide a scan of NW 89's cover (which contained 'Peace on Earth', Mike's first professional sf sale) please let me know so we can add it to the NW cover gallery.
    _"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."

    I can. Guy also has a copy (my original spare, which I sent him in exchange for some Science Fantasy issues). I'll try and get a scan done along with the intro to Swords of Heaven, which I've promised. I just haven't found the time yet, but I will. Honest
    'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

      Should point out that Peace on Earth was my first sf sale to an ADULT sf magazine. I'd sold a fair bit of sf and fantasy to TARZAN by then! And half of that one is Barry Bayley!
