Durdles Books will be at Novacon42 – Nottingham

We are very pleased to announce that Durdles Books will be at Novacon42, 9th – 11th November 2012 at Park Inn Hotel, Nottingham.

Novacon is the UK’s longest-established regional science fiction convention, held every autumn since 1971, and is organised by the Birmingham Science Fiction Group (BSFG). We have not attended this convention before and are looking forward to meeting with some of our customers and friends.  We will be located in the dealer room, and will have a large stock of Science Fiction and Fantasy books, with a smattering of Modern Firsts and other interesting items for the book collector. 

If you are planning to attend then please do come and see us in the dealer room – we will be delighted to meet you.  If you have not made your plans yet then visit the Novacon web site for further programme and booking details. You may also be interested in visiting the BSFG web site to see their monthly meeting programme here

News: More books ….

In the last week we have added a further 50 books to our online inventory.  The newly listed books include a number of good Fantasy hardbacks, including some first editions. There are also some interesting biographical books, for instance about Graham Greene, or a cigar! We also have a nice condition autobiography of Jack Hawkins, the actor, which was published after his death, with the final (upsetting) chapter written by his widow.  Jack Hawkins was a very masculine looking actor who played the stage prior to the war. After the war he starred in films but is mostly known today for his character roles in successful films like The Bridge on the River Kwai, Lawrence of Arabia, Lord Jim, and Oh! What a Lovely War.

I am currently working on a couple of future blog posts featuring a couple of interesting books (one SF the other an artistic puzzle book) that have come to light from our existing stock.  So hope you will check back in the next week, or two to have a look at them.  

We have also being busy sourcing some additional stock, the more interesting of which I shall detail in further post, soon. 

Have a great week, cheers!
