For Gnome Press Collectors
Here I’ll present any works that are directly relevant to collecting Gnome Press in particular. If these items are of interest to you I urge you to pick up your own copies. Any of them will be an absolutely indispensable addition to your library.
A NICE ARTICLE about collecting Gnome Press books in Fantasy Newsletter #52 from 1982. Written by Robert Weinberg.
EXCELLENT GNOME PRESS BIBLIOGRAPHY with opinions by Jack L. Chalker & Mark Owings. From The Science-Fantasy Publishers. Also check out the Preface and Introduction to this comprehensive and voluminous tome. You need this book.
MORE BIBLIOGRAPHIC INFO culled and assembled from Currey’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Authors: A Bibliography of First Printings of Their Fiction and Selected Non-Fiction. Another must-have for collectors. Not every GP first edition is represented in this work. Tom Godwin’s The Survivors is absent for example.
MORE BIBLIOGRAPHY from Earl Terry Kemp at eFanzines. I posted about this a while ago but having it here also makes sense. This also includes a reasonably detailed look at the the other stuff Gnome Press produced: Calendars, Science Fiction World newsletter and the Pick-A-Book flyers. Another interesting element here is the inclusion of the original pulp issue magazines where many of the GP titles first appeared.
ARMED FORCES PAPERBACKS are a little-known product of Gnome Press. Morgan Wallace wrote and article for the May 2005 issue of Paperback Parade focusing on these editions.
Many thanks Morgan for providing the Odyssey with this info. Check out his covers over on the Trivia page.
