17Jan Books Wanted - The Gollancz Rare Works of Imaginative Fiction Series


In 1963 and 1964, the great publisher of science fiction (and others) put together a short-lived series of books celebrating somewhat rare titles with reprints. Nine titles were published, each wrapped in the instantly recognisable yellow jacket.

We thought it would be nice to put together a set of the books, so are currently seeking copies. The nine titles are listed below in publication order, Those in bold are the title we don't currently have.

  1. M.P. Shiel - The Purple Cloud
  2. David Lindsay - A Voyager to Arcturus
  3. E.H. Visiak - Medusa
  4. Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu - Wylder's Hand
  5. Charles Williams - The Greater Trumps
  6. M.P. Shiel - The Lord of the Sea
  7. David Lindsay - The Haunted Woman
  8. M.P. Shiel - The Isle of Lies
  9. Richard Middleton - The Ghost Ship & Other Stories

NB: By the time you read this we may have already put a set together, but please do still get in touch.
