Books For Sale

Currently listing a shed load of westerns on Ebay, including a pile of Oliver Stange's Sudden books and some superb early '60s Zane Grey paperbacks. Not to mention Breed, 70's pc hero.

Had a whole Day Off and just finished watching Vacancy - pretty good, kind of Psycho meets Assault On Precinct 13.
It's so straightforward. Great opening titles too.
And, even though Beckinsale doesn't wear rubber at all in the whole film, it's still worth checking out.

Holy Moley

So, anyway, even though I'm mentally stuck in 1974, Mrs Zero & I do still seem to be opening a shop. Tomorrow. Weeks of hard work seem to have resulted in this happening.
The shop is called Pushkin's and we're going to sell stuff of varying kinds. Some expensive stuff and some cheaper stuff. Basically it's all stuff we're selling. We're a Stuff Shop.

The Trigan Empire

Picked up a humongous pile of knackered old Look & Learns in a charity shop the other day (not a popular thing to do when the house is already half full of ex-shop stock). When I was a kid I learnt everything from Look & Learn - Ned Kelly, dinosaurs, Rommel..which I'm pretty sure is all you really need to know.
Needless to say I tore out all the Tales Of The Trigan Empire. I was into this stuff long before I discovered Marvel & DC, then tragically left it behind once I had discovered Daredevil.
Don Lawrence's art stands up pretty well today I reckon. The bottom two panels - from The Red Death, jolted me right back to 1974, where I hope to remain.
