''the leading UK sf magazine, publishing 220-odd issues over an intermittent career of over fifty years, beginning with the first issue in July 1946. The first three issues were pulp-size, published irregularly by Pendulum in 1946 - 1947 under the editorship of sf fan, John Carnell. Nova Publications, a publishing group formed by UK sf fans who used to meet at the White Horse pub in London, revived this somewhat tentative 1946 - 1947 magazine in 1949 as a digest. Carnell remained in charge until #141 (April 1964), after which the title was taken over by Roberts & Vinter, publishers of Compact Books, who issued it in a paperback edition, edited by Michael Moorcock. After #172 (March 1967) it was published by Moorcock under the auspices of the Arts Council in a stapled 8in x 11in (approx A4) format, rising to bedsheet-size with #179, ending with #201. There have been further (irregular) issues since then, but for the greater part of the period from #22 to #200 the magazine maintained a monthly schedule with only occasional lapses'' (Encyclopedia of SF).

Pendulum Publications: London. 1946.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Pulp Magazine.
Second issue published. Subtitled: A Fiction Magazine Of The Future. Three large-pulp-size magazine issues appeared 1946-1947 from Pendulum Publications, before switching to a smaller (large digest) format and a new publisher Nova Publications (Pendulum having gone bust) from the fourth issue onwards (which appeared after a two year gap in April, 1949). Note: this first issue didn't sell well and was quickly re-issued with a different cover (in fact the same cover as used for the second issue): this is the proper second issue. A sharp copy.

''long the leading UK sf magazine (and an original-anthology series for two sections of its chequered career), publishing 222 issues during a span of 51 years from July, 1946 - August, 1997), but including a 12-year hiatus. New Worlds, though it had volume numbers up to no 177, has always been numbered consecutively (in its magazine incarnations); the first five were undated. New Worlds was a development from a pre-World War Two Fanzine [1936-1939] called first Novae Terrae and then New Worlds, the last four issues of which were edited by science-fiction fan John Carnell. The writer W J Passingham talked the firm The World Says into publishing New Worlds professionally in 1939, just weeks before the Second World War began; but with the subsequent financial collapse of the company, plans were dropped. As a consequence it was not until after the War that New Worlds appeared, this time thanks to Stephen Frances, who introduced Carnell to Pendulum Publications. Three small-pulp-size issues were published irregularly by Pendulum during 1946 and 1947 under Carnell's editorship. Of these issues, the first was issued twice with different covers; no 1 with the original cover had not sold well, but it did better the second time round (the second version used the same cover as no 2). Pendulum Publications then went bust, and a group of UK sf fans and professionals (including Carnell himself, Frank Edward Arnold, Walter Gillings, Eric C Williams and John Wyndham), who used to meet at the White Horse pub in London, formed their own company, Nova Publications, in order to revive this somewhat tentative magazine in 1949 in large-digest format'' (Science Fiction Encyclopedia, Third Edition

Issue no 4 (April, 1949), and the first to appear from Nova Publications after three earlier large-size issues 1946-1947 from Pendulum Publcations. Subtitled: A Fiction Magazine Of The Future.

''long the leading UK sf magazine (and an original-anthology series for two sections of its chequered career), publishing 222 issues during a span of 51 years from July, 1946 - August, 1997), but including a 12-year hiatus. New Worlds, though it had volume numbers up to no 177, has always been numbered consecutively (in its magazine incarnations); the first five were undated. New Worlds was a development from a pre-World War Two Fanzine [1936-1939] called first Novae Terrae and then New Worlds, the last four issues of which were edited by science-fiction fan John Carnell. The writer W J Passingham talked the firm The World Says into publishing New Worlds professionally in 1939, just weeks before the Second World War began; but with the subsequent financial collapse of the company, plans were dropped. As a consequence it was not until after the War that New Worlds appeared, this time thanks to Stephen Frances, who introduced Carnell to Pendulum Publications. Three small-pulp-size issues were published irregularly by Pendulum during 1946 and 1947 under Carnell's editorship. Of these issues, the first was issued twice with different covers; no 1 with the original cover had not sold well, but it did better the second time round (the second version used the same cover as no 2). Pendulum Publications then went bust, and a group of UK sf fans and professionals (including Carnell himself, Frank Edward Arnold, Walter Gillings, Eric C Williams and John Wyndham), who used to meet at the White Horse pub in London, formed their own company, Nova Publications, in order to revive this somewhat tentative magazine in 1949 in large-digest format'' (Science Fiction Encyclopedia, Third Edition).

Fighting Slave Of Gor., Norman,  John
87 Norman, JohnFighting Slave Of Gor. 00878
W. H. Allen: London. 1982.
First hardcover edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
14th book in the sf/fantasy Gor series, first published as a Daw paperback original in 1980.

''his fiction mainly comprises a series of borderline-sf planetary romances set on Gor, a planet sharing Earth's orbit but - because it is on the other side of the Sun - always invisible to us. This astrophysical impossibility is never argued in the texts, which might consequently read as either antiquarian sf or fantasy were it not that the development of the series precludes any reading of Gor as an exercise in sf nostalgia while at the same time demonstrating its great remove from category fantasy. In Tarnsman of Gor (1966), as the series begins, Earthman Tarl Cabot abruptly finds himself on Gor, where - after the fashion of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Barsoom novels - he undergoes numerous adventures, alarms, fights and romances of a sword-sorcery nature. However, as the series progresses, the plots begin to revolve around a singularly invariant sexual fantasy in which a proud woman - often abducted for the purpose from Earth - is humiliated, stripped, bound, beaten, raped, branded and enslaved, invariably discovering in the process that she enjoys total submission to a dominant male, and can derive proper sexual satisfaction only from this regime. Later volumes feature interminable discussions which end, invariably, in an affirmation of the Gorean status quo. The sequence, now terminated, includes: Outlaw of Gor (1967) and Priest-Kings of Gor (1968), both assembled with Tarnsman of Gor as Gor Omnibus (omni 1972 UK); Nomads of Gor (1969); Assassin of Gor (1970); Raiders of Gor (1971); Captive of Gor (1972); Hunters of Gor (1974); Marauders of Gor (1975); Tribesmen of Gor (1976); Slave Girl of Gor (1977); Beasts of Gor (1978); Explorers of Gor (1979); Fighting Slave of Gor (1980); Rogue of Gor (1981); Guardsman of Gor (1981); Savages of Gor (1982); Blood Brothers of Gor (1982); KAJIRA OF GOR (1983); Players of Gor (1984); Mercenaries of Gor (1985); Dancer of Gor (1985); Renegades of Gor (1986); Vagabonds of Gor (1987); and Magicians of Gor (1988)'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).

Victor Gollancz: London. 1985.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Fix-up sf novel: a series of linked stories (three first appearing in Interzone).

''much more sf-like is the Kiteworld sequence comprising KITEWORLD (fixup 1985) and ''Drek Yarman'' (February-June 2000 Spectrum SF), which invokes the atmosphere of earlier work in its depiction of a Ruined Earth Britain dominated by religious fanatics, and its Steampunk rendering of the life of the crews who man the Kiteships, which are the size of Airships, to guard the frontiers against ''demons'' (as the ballistic or cruise missiles of a former technological era are now remembered) in a kind of parody of the Pax Aeronautica theme; the life of the eponymous protagonist of the book-length second title re-enacts in small the deterioration of a land torn to bits by religion: marriage and maturity decaying inexorably (see Entropy) into despair'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Bugs., Sladek,  John

MacMillan: London. 1989.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
SF novel.

''Fred Jones is an impoverished writer who goes to America to seek his fortune. He finds instead a bewildering, soulless shopping mall of a world where seemingly everything and everyone is for sale. In Las Vegas, Jones meets a serial killer. In New York he himself is arrested for murder. In between, in Minnesota's 'Silicon Prairie', Jones finds himself building a robot for the army. It's confusing enough that the Kafkaesque firm he works for keeps changing its name and image, diversifying from bathtubs to cybernetics - only the punk secretaries and mad managers remain the same. Jones private life is just as mixed up - a fellow jogger might be a KGB agent, restuarants are dismantled while he eats, people want to murder him or give him money for obscure reasons. Even watching the TV news is not much comfort: mass poisoners vie for top billing with the presidential sanity hearings, while a robot agrees to clandestine interview. Hilarious and frightening in turn, Bugs is irrepressible, unputdownable and unforgettable.''

Old Hoggen And Other Adventures., Stoker,  Bram
95 Stoker, BramOld Hoggen And Other Adventures. 43001
The Swan River Press: Dublin, Ireland. 2017.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Preface by publisher Brian J. Showers and introduction by John Edgar Browning and Showers.

''at the time of his death in 1912, Bram Stoker was preparing for publication three volumes of stories. The first, Draculaís Guest, saw print in 1914; the second and third never manifested. Old Hoggen and Other Adventures is a tantalising possibility of one of these unrealised selections, and the stories in this volume span the authorís entire career. In reading them, one thing becomes clear: adventure and mystery rival even the gothic in Stokerís literary heart. And yet, one will find among these pages many of the same themes found in Dracula: reverence for the dead, the malice of wicked men, black humour, hidden fortunes, daring bravery, exotic locales, a deep love of the sea, and the creeping intrusion of the supernatural''.
