Yesterday I discovered this treasure you see above at Frank & Son's Collectible Warehouse. Each magazine pictured (the Blade Runner Souvenir Magazine and the American Cinematographer) were each $5 so I snatched them up.
Inside I discovered pages and pages of full color (and some b&w) photos and interviews with PKD, Ridley, cast and crew, etc. and some images (shown above) that are not normally seen (at least by me) in the regular stock photos from the Blade Runner production.
The one image that really sets me off is the street scene image which at first looks like it must be one of Syd Mead's paintings but upon closer inspection is actually a photgraph of the set itself. Gorgeous!
Of course, I checked on Ebay (and you're welcome to do the same) and discovered that each of these is currently going for about $100 each. I got both for $10.
On Saturday I picked up a handful of old SF pulp magazines featuring PKD short stories for about $2 each(!) and one of them was the December 1956 edition of Satellite Science Ficton magazine with a cover story by PKD entitled "A Glass Of Darkness".
The story is the first published version the entire novel "The Cosmic Puppets" (about 95 pages).
Anyway, I went online to see if it was worth anything and couldn't find anything (no, not even on Ebay). But I did come across a listing on Amazon.com where someone was selling a used copy for $159. I couldn't believe it.
Turns out that it's probably more realistically priced around $75, but hey, that's still a good bargain.
This Saturday I'll head back to the same seller to pick up a couple more of these pulp SF magazines also featuring PKD short stories.
