    Barbarigma takes THE NATURE OF THE CATASTROPHE, First Edition, Hutchinson, 1971. Fine in d/w. This contains material not in the New Nature of the Catastrophe and includes the Mal Dean comic strip at the opening bid of $50 US. Hats off for the contribution!

    Marc Roth nabs a full-colour A4 (210 x 297mm) computer print of a hand drawn (but digitally coloured) image by Duncan Crosier for $50 US. Mounted on thin textured card. The bidder can choose any existing subject for the picture, but it should really be a cartoon "portrait" or character study (no landscapes, mecha, etc.). Although I'll stretch that definition to include Moorcock books covers. No more than five main figures, and there must be reference images available. Signed by the artist. Artist retains copyright. Thanks to you both for the contributions!

    VHS of Hawkind The Chronicle of the Black Sword, live at the Hammersmith Odeon 1985 goes to Ken Boorman for $75 US. Thanks a bunch Ken!

    ELRIC: THE DREAMING CITY (Marvel Graphic Novel No. 2) 1982? by Roy Thomas and P.Craig Russell, boards as issued, New York. LEtranger grabs this one at a generous $85. Thank you LEtranger!

    Barbarigma's bid of $100 was post auction and we decided to accept the offer despite being out of the timeframe. This seems fair since there were no bids for longer than 3 weeks. THE SAILOR ON THE SEAS OF FATE, 1976, Quartet Books, London, jacket by Patrick Woodruffe
    Douthwaite, 1976, Allison and Busby, London, jacket by Richard Glynn Jones. We are very happy that you bid on this piece and hope you enjoy it.

    PsychicWarVeteran gets BEHOLD THE MAN, 1969, Allison and Busby, London, jacket by Gabe Nasemann at $150. Thanks so much for your generous contribution PWV.

    Perdix's $190 US (rounded down) wins THE LIVES AND TIMES OF JERRY CORNELIUS, illustrated by Mal Dean, Richard Glyn Jones and Harry. Wonderful of you to bid so high.

    MJR's bid for THE LAUGHTER OF CARTHAGE, 1984, Secker and Warburg, London, jacket courtesy Radio Times Hulton Picture Library was the winning bid at $100 US. Many thanks MJR for your generous bid.
    At least one person has expressed an interest in donating an item for auction and we think that's a great idea. If you have an item you wish to offer for auction, please post in this thread to make arrangements.

    Also, iteams feasible for you to bid on items before they make it onto the digital auction block, so don't be inhibited to place a bid.

    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

    Dee...I agree...your stuff is great!

    I have a photograph of Lisa and myself I would love to have a custom 'DeeCrowSeer' of. Sounds like this is the opportunity.

    $50 USD bid to Womankind Worldwide for this? :mrgreen:

      Um... sorry to be a nuisance, but "my" auction has closed now, yes? I don't wish to sound impatient but my father has stated his intention to open our computer up and cast his retired-radio-engineer's eye over its innards. I don't really rate its chances of surviving such an intrusion, so I'm not sure how much longer I will have access to the scanner and art programme required... :(

        I leave it to Dee and Marc to resolve the transaction. Thanks for the generous donation and contribution.

          I would very happily like to report the safe arrival of the comic ELRIC: THE DREAMING CITY.

          THANKS VERY MUCH!
          I am glad to have it. It is a remarkable piece and an incredible example of the differences in comic style of then and today. Fascinating how things evolve. And in any case awesome to see the different artists' interpretations of your creations like Elric!

          I liked the wrapping, too!

              I should, somewhat belatedly, like to tell everyone that 'The Lives & Times of JC' arrived, splendidly personalised. Heaps of thanks to MM and all those involved in organising this worthy auction. :)

                Indian Ocean Catastrophe Relief Auction

                It doesn't appear that anyone has bid on "The Nature of Catastrophe" yet, so I'll start things off with the opening bid of $50 US.

                  I'm actually still waiting for the VHS of Hawkind The Chronicle of the Black Sword. Did you get my letter Mike, with proof of my donation?

                    Yes -- and many thanks, Ken.
                    I've had so many runs to doctors and clinics in the last couple of weeks that I'm way behind with things I should be doing.
                    Very, very, very sorry!
                    Best,

                        to be auctioned

                        That last book is, as the subject indicates, to be auctioned. Sorry, no pics.

                          To the anonymous poster: The auction is over and we are no longer soliciting donations. Thanks.

                          Guy, that was a typo. It's sorted now.
