Forbidden Worlds of Fantasy: A Portfolio (First Edition, signed)


Hurst, TX: Simba Productions, 1977. First Edition, first issue of unbound illustration magazine on 8.5 x 11-inch leaves, 6 illustrations in b/w (3 by Bird, 3 by Fabian), housed in original envelope, $3 cover price. Number 218 of 300 limited edition copies, signed and numbered by Bird on a "certification" leaf. Inscribed again, and dated 6/8/77, by Bird to "Andy Offutt" on the envelope front. Andrew J. Offutt was an avid science fiction author noted for "Conan"-themed fantasies, and wrote 100s of erotic novels under pseudonyms John Cleve, Turk Winter, John Denis, Opal Andrews, among others. From the Offutt estate.


Fabian has worked in fantasy realms since 1965, often illustrating eroticism, although the 3 works here are more adventure than erotica. Bird, who edited the limited "Simba" and "Balik" fanzines, was mainly an illustrator but also wrote poetry, essays, and short fiction. 


Near Fine with light toning.
