Worlds of IF Science Fiction

They are not all “Worlds of IF Science Fiction”, one is “if Worlds of Science Fiction” which is a UK version published by Strato in Leicester by arrangement.

I was listing all the authors in each digest, but as I have about 1000 different digests in my shop I have decide to list just what I have, so I have a chance of finding them if anyone wants a particular copy.

Some really “cracking” covers but can you spot the one UK cover, also note the contrast in styles particularly between Nov ’68 and Nov 72.

Only one of these listings is only “good”, most are vg or vg+ I have priced them all at £2.50, don’t hesitate if you want more information, but if you get a chance please come and browse but check my Facebook page for opening times.

Dennis Wheatley

I Thought I had a good collection of his works, I knew he was prolific ( not John Creasey or Michael Moorcock prolific but prolific just the same) over 70 books. I do have, paperbacks, hardbacks, hardbacks with dust jackets and some 1st editions (one signed) in stock, mostly at £2.50 each but a few at £5.00. I have highlighted titles I have in stock in red on the bibliography below.

Dennis Yates Wheatley (1897 – 1977) was an English author whose prolific output of stylish thrillers and occult novels made him one of the world’s best-selling writers from the 1930s through the 1960s. His Gregory Sallust series was one of the main inspirations for Ian Fleming’s James Bond stories.

Born in South London, he was the eldest of three children of an upper-middle-class family, the owners of Wheatley & Son of Mayfair, a wine business. He admitted to little aptitude for schooling, and was expelled from Dulwich College. Soon after his expulsion Wheatley became a British Merchant Navy officer cadet on the training ship HMS Worcester.

During the Second World War, Wheatley was a member of the London Controlling Section, which secretly coordinated strategic military deception and cover plans. His literary talents gained him employment with planning staffs for the War Office. He wrote numerous papers for the War Office, including suggestions for dealing with a German invasion of Britain.

Dennis Wheatley died on 11th November 1977. During his life he wrote over 70 books and sold over 50 million copies.
