Things I bought in the UK


Rick Geary Lovers' Lane - the Hall-Mills Mystery. From Rick Geary's Treasury of XXth Century Murder series. I am fond of Rick Geary's comic books about American murder but I fear that this will lack the bizarre gothic qualities of The Bloody Benders or The Bears of Chicago

Simon Reynolds Retromania: Pop Culture's Addiction to its Past. Man, I remember when this classic came out, it is so much better than the music books of today. The edition I picked up is also pretty collectible.

Clifford D. Simak City. This is a second hand copy of the classic weirdo SF novel that has maybe crept back into print thanks to Gollancz and their SF Masterworks series.

Jean-Pierre Filiu & David B. Best of Enemies: A History of US and Middle East Relations. Comics and international relations, together at last.

Peter Haining (ed.) Beyond the Curtain of Dark. A New England Library collection of classic horror stories from the great anthologist Peter Haining.


The Keelers Farewell to the Master: Sea Shanties. I bought this from one of the Keelers. Yarrrrr.

The Unthanks Diversions vol. 2: The Unthanks with Brighouse and Rastrick Brass Band. | am interested in the combination of Unthanks and brass.

v/a American Murder Ballads: 50 Vintage Murder Ballads. A three quid impulse purchase from Fopp.

v/a Sailor's Songs & Sea Shanties: A Classic Collection of Sea Songs and Shanties. Another impulse purchase from Fopp. It was either this or another collection of sea songs, let's hope I did not get the wrong one.
