Popoff_MC

This is good news. It took five years to finish this wonderful book for prolific author Martin Popoff, but now we can all feast on “Metal Collector: Gathered Tales From Headbangers”. When word about this project went out, I did send him a story about how I got the Deep Purple bootleg “Get It While It Tastes!” signed by David Coverdale, and I am told that it is part of this book now.

JamesBond_Spectrebook

With the Tarzan book I blogged about earlier today, I also got this one. “James Bond – Spectre, The Complete Comic Strip Collection” (Titan Books, 2015), with foreword by John Logan. It features the adventures “Thunderball”, “The Spy Who Loved Me”, “On Her Majesty´s Secret Service” and “You Only Live Twice”. Big format, hardback, 272 pages.

And the pages are not pink (sorry about that).

Tarzan On Film

TarzanOnFilm

Added Scott Tracy Griffin´s “Tarzan On Film” (Titan Books, 2016) to the old collection. Hardback, big format, 224 pages. I grew up with the old films on television and the comics. Good to see that the character is still part of our Zeitgeist.

I love this book.

Why are books like “Made In Japan” by author Glen Chase not within easy reach today? Back in 1974, you could pick up the Cherry Delight books pretty much anywhere… Our civilization is going to hell…

Nice Charles Copeland cover too.

Dorset_may17

This looks like a good read. UK publication Dorset pays homage to the 75th Anniversary of Enid Blyton´s The Famous Five in the May 2017 issue. The adventures were set in Dorset, which is the point here.

Lovely.

The third book in the Landscapes of War series has arrived, titled “Rural Invironments” (Accion Press, 2017). 600 images in full colour over 130 pages in A4 format.

Excellent.

Currently available in Kindle format, Paul L. Thompson´s “You Think I Shot Him” and Frank Leslie´s “Wildcat Of The Sierra Estrada”. Personally, I will hold on to get my hands on the paperbacks.

Nice covers.
