I used to get Bibliophile Books' catalogue and they're very cheap for good quality books. I do recall they had quite a steep charge for p & p, no matter how many books you ordered. So it's not very good value if you just want one or two, but if you're buying a big batch it's pretty good value. ;D
By Clovis' beard! Would you have us believe the Killercrab was in truth an earth-pig born? >.
Tarim's blood you drunken sot! - I'm an sea- crab born you know?! Bring me another flagon now !! Where are the dancing girls?!!
I thought Sim did a marvellous parody of BWS' Conan and I'd love to have read all 300 issues of his book - however weird he got! Quite fancy some of those compilation books - I have some of the early ones with colour covers - one includes a brilliant BWS back-up strip.
I met Derek Wright from Wordsworth at the Zardoz fair, and gave him an idea for something to go publish (he's having a dig to see if it's in copyright or not) but I'm also going to be interviewing him for the allthingshorror website. So if you have any questions - pm them to me or send them to email@example.com - it should be really interesting to see what they have to say.
1. What happens when an author is so obscure that it's impossible to trace them, as is the case with many of those encountered in our Between the Wars:Gruesome Cargoes section? Would the publisher be covered if they ran a note to the effect that Every effort has been made to trace the owners of the copyright material in this book .... in case of any question arising as to the use of any material, the publisher/ editor will be pleased to make the necessary corrections in future editions of the book
2. Do Wordsworth have any plans to reprint Rymer's Varney, The Vampire?
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
