*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: Just over a handful of fresh Digit books have arrived on the bookshelves: Bulmer’s The Fatal Fire and The Secret Of Zi, Cooper’s Voices In The Dark (short stories), a Kornbluth & Pohl collaboration, Search The Sky and Lan Wright’s Assignment Luther. Saving the best for last, despite coming first alphabetically, we have Aldiss’ Non-stop, the 1st UK PB for this novel, celebrated with a splendid Emshwiller cover.
*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: Brown & Watson Ltd published mainly Western and Crime books, but they launched Digit in the 1950’s when Science Fiction began to increase in popularity. This update has a full handful of titles, mainly from the 1960’s: Louis Charbonneau’s Corpus Earthling, Nal Rafcam’s The Troglodytes, Jonathan Burke’s The Pursuit Through Time and Tom Wade’s The World Of Theda. Star of the releases, however, is the 1st UK PB of Sydney J Bounds’ The Robot Brains, issued in 1956. In an update that has several very striking covers The Robot Brains stands out for its stunning cover art by the rarely seen C. Stewart.
