Part of the problem this time around is that I grouped two projects together because I want to get proofs for three books printed at the same time to save myself a bit of cash.
But, at last, I have some news to report!
I've chosen this one because it's such a good introduction to the character — there are some nice little articles which will bring you up to speed if you're not a die-hard Blake fan and the stories are by some of Blake's most popular authors.
Peter Jackson London Collection of over 20,000 images — which is what I was working on last year and the early months of this year. Look and Learn struck a deal with the owners of the Jackson books which has made this reprint collection possible. The four Blake annual reprints are the result of another deal of which all I'll say is that I need to work on my negotiation techniques, as it involved writing out a rather large cheque up front with no guarantee that I'll actually sell any books!

Our random scans this week are a selection of Badger SF yarns by authors other than Badger regulars Lionel Fanthorpe and John Glasby. William H. Fear was, I guess, an early regular as he wrote a fair number of the early Badger SF output, including the pseudonymous Quest of the Seeker by James T. Elton. But he soon gave up (not surprising, as pay rates rarely rose above 10 shillings a thou.) and others arrived to take his place, including a number of reprints and a single novel by the indefatigable Victor Norwood.

Next week we have a full five days of World of Wonder. I hope you're enjoying these trips down memory lane; we're almost a third of the way through the run (not, I should note, that I have a full run) and I'll hopefully get another batch of these finished before the month is out although putting these galleries together is particularly time consuming.
