Paperback Fanatic #15

Posted by demonik on July 7, 2010

News from Justin’s trash morgue bolt-hole, aka Fanatic HQ

Justin Marriott (ed.) – Paperback Fanatic #15 (July, 2010)

Issue 15
Is back from the printers and will be posted by Wednesday at the latest, so UK subscribers should have their new issue by next weekend. Overseas subscribers should allow 10 days for air-mail. Any problems, please do let me know.

Two new one-off publications from The Fanatic
I plan to issue two specials, both of which will be printed strictly to demand so I require you to lodge your interest. This means I can work out if demand makes them financially viable, and then to work out a final price/format etc. Details of the planned publications are below, but if you are interested I need an e-mail from you for each publication. Respond to this mail and place either “NEL” or “Pennington” in the subject. Responses required by the end of July. If you want both, I require two separate mails.

By responding you are not 100% committing to purchasing the publications, but you are saying “If the price is right, the content looks good and my finances haven’t drastically changed by the time of publication, I have every intention of paying for one.” As a ball park, I would expect both publications to be in the region of 90 pages, A5, perfect-bound (i.e. with a spine), 50% full colour, and costing in the region of £7 post-paid in the UK, and $15 international. (I’m hoping I can offer them cheaper, or include more colour for the same price- it all comes down to demand)

Bruce Pennington Special
Giant interview with the master fantasy artist, covering every aspect of his career The stories behind his iconic covers for Stranger in a Strange Land and Dune. Rare documents and photos supplied by the artist. A checklist of every single one of his paperback covers. At least 150 reproductions of his art and covers, with most in colour.

The Visual Guide to New English Library
A lavishly illustrated guide to the legendary publishing company. Key genres in the 1970s paperback industry are given a chapter each.
Including – horror, science fiction, sleaze, historical adventure, crime, youth cults, slavers and the MEWS imprint. Each chapter contains an overview of the genre, notable titles and authors.
Full checklists including pseudonyms and artists.
At least 150 reproductions of covers, with many in colour.

I appreciate your ongoing support.

Justin

The new issue literally dropped through the door as i was formatting the above. Presented in a wraparound of Kane covers, this typically eclectic issue features an overview of Guy N. Smith’s extracurricular horror work for Hamlyn, Arrow, Pitakus, Grafton & Co: an interview with Warren Murphy, co-author of not very laid back mens adventure series The Destroyer: Rob Matthews on Fu Manchu in Pyramid (Stephen Sennitt also devotes his now regular column to Rohmer). Holger Haase on ‘Paul Kenyon’s sexy spy series The Baroness: Justin’s overview of Karl E. Wagner’s immortal acid goth sword & sorcery legend (who i never really got on with!); plus the usual lively exchange of information and opinion in the mighty Fanatic Thoughts. seems to me #15 boasts the most color pages yet?
