THE NEW SF
Scored this for 60p at an otherwise crap book-fair in Sherbore today:
All the usual late 60s/early 70s New Worlds suspects on board: Aldiss, Ballard, Butterworth, Disch, Sladek, MM, etc...plus I prob. got a chunk of these stories in other anthologies, but what the hell; I just loooove the cover.
The New SF: fuck, man...it's what it says on the label.
I even love the font they used for "SF". Any font-spotters out there know what it is? I'm gonna have that font on my tombstone (which'll be dark mauve w/ overlapping concentric white circles...)
For anybody interested, Langdon Jones' site is over here.
Also had some reasonably-priced Boys-Own type 1950's hardbacks on display, but none of them really floated me boat. One of the bookshops over in SnoreBore had the new Moorcock h/b, but it was 17 quid and I'm not exactly short of reading material, so maybe I'll hold out for a nice paperback edition. Bought some v. old reduced oil-bars in the art-shop, though ...been looking for some fer ages. Think I lost my stash in the house-move 3 years back. No one seems to stock 'em any more, as they're not a fashionable art tool any more...too brutally Prole, too messy for the middle-classes...give 'em all a water-colour enema, I say.
