This week I’m including three pages from the ‘1986 Forthcoming Titles’ book I picked up recently. There are several more which I will use in future blogs now and again.
The three Picador titles are relatively easy to find as is the PAN ‘Staying OK’ although the edition shown is a hardback version by other publishers as are ‘Shah of Shahs’ and ‘The Engineer of Human Souls’ while ‘You Can’t Play To Win If You Don’t Know The Rules’ doesn’t appear to exist apart from on this page! I have looked through all the online catalogues, from sellers and titles listed as by Christopher Andersen but nothing has popped up. Has anyone seen a copy not just by PAN but by any publisher? The only title with a cover that was shown and used was ‘White Noise’
I’ve added the above page and a printer’s proof to Wilbur’s page HERE, It is interesting to see the ‘Golden PAN Award’ featured there as Wilbur collected 22. It’s not possible to see if the one used was one of his or for another author.
The third page is for ‘Cry Once Alone’ by E V Thompson with artwork by Kevin Tweddell. I’ve included the page and a copy of the printer’s proof on Kevin’s page HERE which happens to show ‘The Burning Shore’ as it was also by Kevin.
