This year we’re very excited (maybe the !!! gives it away?) to be taking part in the London Bookshop Crawl, which will be happening over the weekend of 9th – 11th February. The Bookshop Crawl, as you might imagine is like a pub crawl, only with books, and is an opportunity for booklovers to visit lots of (mainly) independent booksellers and be rewarded in the process.
We’ll be offering 10% off all purchases from our Books section, and a selection of free books (up to 5 per customer). In addition, for this Sunday (11th) only, we’ll be open from 10:30 to 18:00.
If you want to join in, or just find out more, just click here.
*TV/Film Tie-Ins: It’s back to the 70’s for most of the film-related books in this release, with only two outliers: Petulia from 1968 and Superman III from 1983. The main event includes Star Wars (1st UK PB, 1st printing), Alien, Logan’s Run, Porridge (the book of the film), Shaft, The Black Hole and The Cross And The Switchblade.
*TV/Film Tie-Ins: There’s something for adventurous landlubbers, would-be astronauts and mariners in this latest update. On land we have the Avengers in Heil Harris! (Emma Peel takes over the world!), Callan in A Red File For Callan, Dangerman in Hell For Tomorrow, and Invaders At Ground Zero (the first Tales for Tomorrow novelisation). In space we have two Space: 1999 books, Astral Quest and The Space Guardians, while on the ocean wave we have The Boatniks, the novelisation of a Walt Disney film featuring Phil Silvers.
*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: Two mouth-wateringly rare Hammer Horror books join our shelves today, featuring John Burke’s gruesomely spine-chilling novelisations of classic Hammer films. The elusive Hammer Horror Omnibus features a double double bill: The Curse Of Frankenstein, The Revenge of Frankenstein, The Gorgon and The Curse Of The Mummy’s Tomb. The Second Hammer Horror Film Omnibus is even more elusive, but by a spooky twist of fate we have two on offer. This book also features tales from four films: Dracula – Prince Of Darkness, Rasputin – The Mad Monk, The Reptile and finally The Plague Of The Zombies. All are 1st UK PB editions; truly horror to make you drool. Prices reflect their rarity: the first Omnibus is VG at £75; both seconds are GD also at £75 each.
*TV/Film Tie-Ins: The expansion of the Book Section allows us to put out thisTV/Film update covering a wide range of genres. We have the first three novels by Martin Caidin that inspired the 6 Million Dollar Man, Cannon, Dangerman (two novels), Paul Temple (two novels) and the Men from U.N.C.L.E., including a rare copy of the The Corfu Affair. We also have the World of Tim Frazer (an accidental spy), the Memoirs Of A Thief (inspiration for the film Teresa The Thief), the second 1990 novel, Blue Blood, George Lucas’ Star Wars novel, a few Dr Who adventures and finally Two A Penny, based on a film starring Cliff Richard.
