Science Fiction – Update

Just a sample of what I have in stock, I do have over 100 foot on the wall and probably twice that still in boxes. Most of what I have is pre 1980 with a scattering of later stuff.

I do have about two or three thousand digests, but I have only scratched the surface at cataloguing them. I have a few “Pulps” left, but not many. I also have two or three hundred hard backs, some very rare ones.

A History of Mirfield – By H N Pobjoy

Published by the Ridings Publishing Company in 1969 a 220 page 10”X8” hard back illustrated with line drawings and is indexed. It was seen as the “definitive” history of Mirfield for a long time, though obviously a personal thing I always thought it too “Churchy”. I was more frustrated by the fact that Pobjoy had access to a large amount of interesting material. He does not mention one of my ancestors who was a Mirfield resident who was hung at York for “Clipping and Coining” (a fact I did not mention when I stood for the council in Mirfield).

A fine copy in a dust jacket with a slightly discoloured spine. £30.00

National Nursery Rhymes set to Music by J W Elliot

Rebound in 1964 (for the sum of £1. 13s. 10d.) 110 pages illustrated with engravings by the Brothers Dalziel. A very tight and tidy book


AZAN – The Ape Man


Curtis Books, London, 1951. Paperback. Condition: Poor. One of the six “Azan the Ape Man” titles published by Curtis Warren Limited in the early 1950s, before they had to cease and desist when the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate took them to court for being way too obvious about ripping off the Tarzan idea. Garron was a pen name of David Arthur Griffiths, an editor at Curtis Warren. A paperback original. Great cover art by Terry Maloney, of knife-wielding Azan about to rescue a beautiful babe tied to a stake. All the Azan titles are uncommon. Unfortunately this one is in poor shape The spine is all but missing (repaired with “Magic” Tape) the staples are rusty and the paper is just starting to show it’s 70 years– Size: 12mo – over 6¾” – 7¾” tall.

Thanks to Black Falcon Books for the info.

I can’t find a copy for sale on t’internet so I am offering this one for £25.00.



I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but as a book shop owner I do read a lot (68 books so far this year) so it is a great week when I discover a new author. This week I have excelled that and discovered two, not only that, by chance in both cases it was the first book in a series.

Two new authors, two new detectives and two new towns.

Louise Penny introduces Chief Inspector Gamache from the Surete  du Quebec (sorry I don’t know how to put accents on Surete), I don’t know if Three Pines exists but hope it does. Good interesting characters, cops and public, good pace and interesting sub plots, I did, sort of, guess the killer but not the reasoning. Very well worth a read.

Alison Bruce brings us back to the UK, this time Cambridge with DC Garry Goodhew. There are parallels with Morse and there is a suspicion that they are deliberate (watch out for the TV series, Oxford and Cambridge each would hate for the other to have something they don’t, even murder). My only criticism is that I find some of Garry’s clandestine activities not to be credible but the characters all seem interesting and credible. Another good read.

I only have these two titles in the shop (£2.00 each) but I now hunt others in the series.

Dr Who

Dr Who Annual 1967 108

Like many “perfect bound” books the binding of this copy is less than perfect, though complete some pages are loose. If this book wasn’t so rare (the 2nd annual) I might have scrapped it. There is no illustration of this cover on ABE. I am offering it at £5.00.

I have many other Dr Who Annuals, paperbacks and magazines in stock. This list is just a sample.
