The British Are Coming – Auction

Here’s two more of the rare British books that will be auctioned as part of the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction being held at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). The auction will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.

The anthology “Jinn & Jitters” was edited by John “Ted” Carnell and published in 1946 as the only entry in the Pendulum “Popular” Fantasy Series. Also from 1946 was “Wings Across Time,” an anthology of four stories by Frank Edward Arnold (three of which were reprinted from the pulps), which was the first of two volumes in the Pendulum Popular Spacetime Series. Obviously, neither series proved popular enough!

Thrilling Stories – At Auction

Another rare British books that will be auctioned as part of the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction being held at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). The auction will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.

“Thrilling Stories” was published in 1946 by Utopian Publications. It reprinted two stories from the pulps — “Master of the Genes” by Edmond Hamilton (reprinted from Wonder Stories, January 1935) and “Cat’s Eye” by Harl Vincent (reprinted from Amazing, April 1934).

British Science Fiction Paperbacks – At Auction

It’s hard to believe, but with 2019 now here, the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center).is just over 3 months away! Over the next week or so, I’ll be posting some of the interesting foreign books and magazines that will be in the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction, which will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.

Here’s four of them, from the American Science Fiction series published in the early 1950’s by Malian Press in Sydney, Australia. The lower two contain additional stories beyond those mentioned on the cover — “Elimination” also contains Campbell’s “Frictional Losses,” while “Dead Knowledge” also contains “Men of the Ten Books” by Jack Vance. As the scans show, these are in beautiful shape!

Dangerous Love – At Auction

The 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center), which is now just over 3 months away, will kick off the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction. This year’s auction will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.

Here are two of the rare British books that will be in the auction, both reprints from the pulps. “Romance in Black” by Gans T. Field reprints “The Black Dream” (serialized in Weird Tales in 1938), with Field being a pseudonym for Manly Wade Wellman. “Dangerous Love” by Ralph Milne Farley reprints “The Man From Ouija Land” which was serialized in Mind Magic in 1931.

British PB’s At Auction

Here are two more of the rare British books that will be auctioned as part of the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction being held at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). The auction will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.

These are both from publisher Gerald C. Swan, Ltd., circa 1952, and reprint stories from the pulps. “The Man on the Meteor” by Ray Cummings originally appeared as a serial in Science and Invention during 1924, while Arthur J. Burks’ “The Great Mirror” is reprinted from the Summer 1942 issue of Science Fiction Quarterly.

The Case Against Comics – at Auction

There will be some interesting comics related items that will be auctioned as part of the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction being held at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). The auction will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.
Here’s one of them — a small, 32 page (plus covers) pamphlet, “The Case Against Comics,” published in 1944 by the Catechetical Guild in St. Paul, Minnesota, written by Gabriel Lynn. This warned against comics, which were fueling the rising tide of juvenile delinquency. And, of course, they were also a menace to chastity, as well as creating fear and distress in younger children. And superheroes, who act outside of the law, were viewed as un-American and a threat to democracy. Whereas the dime novels of the previous generation, such as Frank Merriwell, were good, wholesome reading. Among the things their study of 92 comic books and over 1000 examples from 27 newspaper comic strips during the period from August through October 1943 found were 216 major crimes depicted, 86 sadistic acts, 186 instances of vulgar behavior, 114 examples of suggestive art, 491 cases of vulgar speech (differentiated from the 194 examples of gross grammatical abuses), 161 physical monstrosities, 204 fantastic situations and actions and 246 un-American, vigilante activities. All sorts of interesting things one can learn from this booklet!

Look at all those unsuspecting…innocent children being corrupted by the damning influence of comic books! Who knows how many of them turned into serial killers, gang members…or members of congress!

More from the Weinberg Estate For Auction At Windy City

There will be several interesting and unique items in the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction, being held on Friday, April 12, 2019, at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019, held at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). Here’s one of them, a copy of “Not at Night!” edited by Herbert Asbury, publication date November 1928. While it lacks a dustjacket, what makes it unique are the three signatures on the front free endpaper — editor Asbury, H.P. Lovecraft (present inside with “The Horror at Redhook”) and August W. Derleth (present inside with “The Coffin of Lissa” and “Bat’s Belfrey”). Pasted to the rear free endpaper is a review of the book clipped from the New York Times; I’ll post that in the comments.
