1 BOYS' WORLD, (Michael Moorcock's Wrath Of The Gods)Boys' World: 37 various issues (includes Michael Moorcock's WRATH OF THE GODS). 42967
Odhams Press: London. 1963-1964.
First edition.
Oversize comic.
89 issues of this UK weekly boys' comic were published in total 1963-1964, after which it merged with Eagle. There were 49 issues in volume 1 (1963) and 40 issues in volume 2 (1964). This broken run of 37 issues consists of - vol 1 no 12 (13th April, 1963), 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 48, then vol 2 no 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 24, 25 and 37 (12th September 1964). Probably the best remembered strip in Boys' World was WRATH OF THE GODS, an epic fantasy set in ancient Greece and written by MICHAEL MOORCOCK and initially drawn by Ron Embleton (first 23 issues), published from January 1963 as a colour centrespread and continuing until just after its amalgamation with Eagle in October 1964. The stories recounted the adventures of an impetuous young man, Arion, and his various encounters with the minor gods and magical figures of the ancient Greek myths. Compared with the usual standard of comics writing at the time they were well paced and inventive, but are more memorable for the groundbreaking artwork (Ron Tiner/Encyclopedia of Fantasy). Other UK illustrators for the comic were Brian Lewis and Frank Bellamy).

''launched by Odhams Press on 26th January 1963, Boys' World's more notable strips included Interpol secret agent Merlo the Magician, archaeologist Pike Mason, Bret Million: The Angry Planet (inspired by/ripping off Harry Harrison's Deathworld), The Ghost World (about a human colony on an alien planet originally believed to be uninhabited until the settlers discover the hostile natives are invisible to the human eye because they move at superhuman speeds), Dr. What and his Time Clock (a pastiche of Doctor Who), The Iron Man (a robot adventurer), and Billy Binns (whose supernatural spectacles granted the unwitting boy special powers). However, probably the best remembered strip in Boys' World was WRATH OF THE GODS, an epic fantasy initially drawn by Ron Embleton, which told the tale of Arion, who was charged to find the lost weapons of Ajax by Zeus, facing numerous mythological challenges along the way. Boys' World was cancelled after 89 issues on 3rd October 1964 and merged into Eagle. Billy Binns and The Iron Man were among the strips that survived the merger''.

Allison & Busby: London. 1971.
First edition (& 1st binding).
Hardcover.
First binding state (Currey A) of brown boards with buff coloured endpapers and brown and white dustjacket. Second novel in the Jerry Cornelius series, following THE FINAL PROGRAMME (1968). SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Very uncommon UK hardcover.

''his next significant move was the creation of a figure parodic of the pretentious Weltschmerz of the antiheroic Elric: Jerry Cornelius, a portmanteau antihero painted initially in the Pop colours of 1960s ''Swinging London'', was Elric turned inside out, an anarchic streetwise urban ragamuffin with James Bond gear, and amorally deft at manipulating everything from women to the multiverse itself. In his early adventures -- during which the planet suffers various catastrophes -- Jerry ranges from the present through the far future, ever melancholy, randy and evanescent. This early version of Jerry dominates the first two novels of the Jerry Cornelius sequence: The Final Programme (1968), later filmed as The Final Programme (1973; cut vt The Last Days of Man on Earth 1975 US), and A CURE FOR CANCER (1971). In the third and fourth volumes of the sequence -- The English Assassin (1972) and The Condition of Muzak (1977), which won the 1977 Guardian Fiction Prize -- the portrait of Pierrot-like Jerry and his enduring family and associates deepens, as the various Londons they inhabit become less and less open to their sf/fantasy manipulations'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Jonathan Cape: London. 1992.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
The third Colonel Pyatt novel, following Byzantium Endures (1981) and The Laughter of Carthage (1984).

''the most interesting later novels are the Colonel Pyat sequence, comprising Byzantium Endures (1981), The Laughter of Carthage (1984), and Jerusalem Commands (1992), These novels, which feature many characters from the Jerry Cornelius books, are non-generic, being an ambitious attempt to convey some sense of the 20th century through the unreliable memoirs of one man. They represent the author's slow but inexorable evolution from pulp to Postmodernism, a transition made all the more interesting because of the large number of books through which it can be traced, and because he has so frequently returned to early sequences (Elric in particular), transforming them in the process. Moorcock has therefore become less and less easy to pigeonhole as a writer, and has come to be recognized as a major figure at the edge of -- but materially helping to define -- all his chosen worlds'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Hardcover.
Third novel in the Jerry Cornelius series, following THE FINAL ROGRAMME (1968) and A CURE FOR CANCER(1971). SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. A very uncommon UK hardcover.

''his next significant move was the creation of a figure parodic of the pretentious Weltschmerz of the antiheroic Elric: Jerry Cornelius, a portmanteau antihero painted initially in the Pop colours of 1960s ''Swinging London'', was Elric turned inside out, an anarchic streetwise urban ragamuffin with James Bond gear, and amorally deft at manipulating everything from women to the multiverse itself. In his early adventures -- during which the planet suffers various catastrophes -- Jerry ranges from the present through the far future, ever melancholy, randy and evanescent. This early version of Jerry dominates the first two novels of the Jerry Cornelius sequence: The Final Programme (1968), later filmed as The Final Programme (1973; cut vt The Last Days of Man on Earth 1975 US), and A Cure For Cancer (1971). In the third and fourth volumes of the sequence -- THE ENGLISH ASSASSIN (1972) and The Condition of Muzak (1977), which won the 1977 Guardian Fiction Prize -- the portrait of Pierrot-like Jerry and his enduring family and associates deepens, as the various Londons they inhabit become less and less open to their sf/fantasy manipulations'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

A Jerry Cornelius novel.

''black comedy, science fantasy, adventure story, end-of-the-world novel, musical, opera, rock folly. The good airship Lady Charlotte Lever chugged over what was probably Transcarpathia. Una Persson was stopping over in London to see her lover Catherine. Makhno's anarchists held Ontario. Toronto was about to fall. The Americans were agitated. It was 1948 and a second World War was about to break out. Major Nye hoped not. He remembered the Great War and Geneva in 1910. Jerry Cornelius was left behind in a New Hampshire barn. While in Lionel Himmler's Blue Spot Club, Miss Brunner ordered jugged hare as Bartok played on the jukebox''
