*TV / Film Tie-Ins: The Avengers are back! Steed and co. are back in stock this week with some rare paperbacks. First up is the very first Avengers novel by Douglas Enefor. We’re fortunate to have two copies of this rarity available in a choice of printings: 1st printing (left below) VG at £55, 2nd printing (centre) VG at £50. Also, Dead Duck, authored by Patrick Macnee himself, VG at £15. Still hugely popular and transcending their cult status following, Steed and his female companions have entered into true iconic status.
*TV/Film Tie-Ins: No, not the Marvel heroes for once, but the iconic TV series from the 1960’s featuring Steed, Cathy Gale, Emma Peel and Tara King, here represented in novel form. There were four UK published novels in 1967 featuring Steed & Mrs. Peel, which were later reprinted by Berkley Medallion Books in US, followed by a further five original US novels. Not only do we have all nine Berkley Medallion US PB (American first editions), but we also have two of the four UK PB originals, and even more excitingly, a Meet The Avengers Star Special magazine from 1963, featuring Cathy Gale and Steed. If you’re as excited as we are about these items, you can find details of grades and prices in our on-line catalogue. ‘Mrs. Peel — we’re needed!’
