Good to see this topic come back to life , sincere thanks to all of you for taking the time to take pictures of your books & for posting them up here for everyone , especially the old pulps . They rarely had 'great' artwork by todays standards , but they're classics & it's sure cool to get a look at the old rare ones . I could kick myself for selling off my old Weird Tales collection , don't remember how many I had exactly - but it was a decent sized box-full , at least 80 or so of them , and at least a dozen to 15(?) of them were issues with Howard stories . When I see what those oldies get nowadays on ebay & stuff , compared to what I got for them about 10 or 12 years ago - man , double-kick myself in the ass !!
An extremely rare paperback...
...another rare paperback...
Are those p-b.'s really that rare ? I've got both ( they're in the pictures of my Howard stack of reading copies back in the first half-dozen or so posts of this topic ). , & have 2 copies of 'She-devil' . There's 'another'
in "murderers Grog" , I think that's 3 different Sonyas by Howard isn't it ? I love that Maroto cover on "Pigeons" too , one of his rare full-colored works .
I was wondering , do any of you know - is there some kind of paperback book price-guide or something for collectors ? I've never seen anything like that , I wonder if there's any serious collectors of paperback books ( besides us fan-geeks I mean
) I have no idea of how you could find out how rare any p.-b's might be , other than what price they're getting on ebay or amazon I suppose ?
