Fluid Man, Coil Man & Multi Man


Well, I'm back from a fortnight in Devon where it fucking rained an awful lot. Managed to eat at least one pasty a day plus a great deal of fudge, bacon, cream teas - you name it, we fucking ate it.
Picked up this superb The Impossibles annual along with 150-odd books (watch The List for up and coming sales).
Does anyone else remember The Impossibles? I was beginning to think I had made the whole fucking thing up. Even the guy who sold it to me doesn't remember them - and he was a big Hanna-Barbera fan. I do remember a ground breaking combo in the late '70s called The Fluid Men, but I think they split up due to chemical differences.
Once I dig through my stock I'll post some cool book covers by Moorcock, Hassel, Kessler, plus a rather groovy Fiona Richmond novel.

The Impossibles fucking rocked, Man. Loved the double-bill cartoon with Frankenstein Jnr. Modern TV is soooo impoverished by comparison.

Great to see you and Kate, btw.

Good to see you too..your den is looking ace. I found you a copy of Jewel In The Skull (in Lyme Regis weirdly enough)..so don't be buying it.
Due to the shite weather on holiday..spent a LOT of time in bookshops.

Yay! Cheers, Man...

Re-reading Moorcock's "Blood" at the moment. Forgot how fucking weird that book is.

Finally moved into the den about a week ago...it's starting to get verrrrry comfy now...

...And I'm reading The City In The Autumn Stars which I found on Hol - still hunting a copy of War Hound & The World's Pain.
I wanted a den..then realized I have a flat.

Cool! I've never seen either of them as individual novels apart from that "Von Bek" anthology...
