Henning Mankell

If you have yet to discover “Nordic Noir” then Wallnder , created by Henning Mankell is a good place to start. Could you imagine Morse, or even Lewis, going to the toilet and deciding it’s time to change their underpants. The characters seem real, however bizarre the crimes, there is a Dan Brown Factor of Nil in these books (Dan Brown of ten is when every character is over six foot tall, looks beautiful and has an IQ of over 180).

I have a good selection in the shop all at £2.00 each, just the book for this god awful weather we have at the moment.

SPELLING ASSISTANT

IMG_20191130_105902

Undated, the title made me think it was a book for Carpenters to help with their spelling, but it is Thomas Carpenter’s “cunning plan” to help scholars.

Tatty binding but complete, so, (I hate the way that “so” is used at the start of every sentence, even by people you expect more of, at least the “Australian” inflection is falling into disuse), if you want to give your child a help with spelling, I am asking only £1.00 for this “spelling assistant”.

Doc SAVAGE – a man in need of a new shirt supplier.

Kenneth Robeson was the house name used by Street and Smith Publications as the author of their popular character Doc Savage and later The Avenger. Though most Doc Savage stories were written by the author Lester Dent, there were many others who contributed to the series, including:

William G. Bogart
Evelyn Coulson
Harold A. Davis
Lawrence Donovan
Alan Hathway
W. Ryerson Johnson

I have about 12 Omnibus editions in stock at £3.50 and about 100 other titles, I was hoping to include the list here but unfortunately for some reason all the work I did yesterday has not recorded.

GALAXY – Update

The covers for this period are unusual (check out the detail on March 1970) but some of my favourites.

IMG_20191108_105157Galaxy 1970 04 098

This list may not be complete, just what I listed so far. The contributors may be complete, or just those on the cover, or none, they may be the full name or surname only. I have priced them as at least vg, any that were not have been binned, but I will reduce price if they have faults.
