Cavalier - June 1970

Week two of content resulting from my conversations with Mark Bode. The extra-interesting part of this one is that it was sitting in my files the whole time. (See the reference to the Vaughn Bode Index which I’ve had for ages.)

  • “Bean, Gerbel an Porn” to Appendix A

This has been one of those week’s that pops up out of nowhere and adds so much to the value of this site. I’ve recently bee in contact with Mark Bode, the son of artist, and friend of Dean’s, Vaughn Bode (pictured here.) Mark has sold me an original unpublished work of Dean’s along with answering a handful of question I had. This week I’ve added some of what mark has shared and will be adding more in the coming week. Enjoy!

A foreign edition, a new old item, an new item, and something potentially silly. It’s been an interesting week.

Amazing Stories, January 1970

I received my numbered copy of The Bad Weather Friend from Charnel House this week so if you ordered a copy, be on the lookout. I’ve also added the two letters that led up to the letter from Dean I posted a week or two ago. Lastly, I found an obit for Richard Laymon from Dean I was previously, and sadly, unaware of.

Gothic Blimp Works ad color pixelated

No commentary this week, just a few new items.

  • Color Gothic Blimp Works ad to Appendix G(1).
    Sadly, I don’t know the source issue of the color version as the eBay seller wouldn’t/couldn’t say.

  • Henry Golding To Star In Series Adaptation Of Dean Koontz’s ‘Nameless’ Books From SK Global to Nameless (TV, Unproduced)

Not a lot of new information but what there is, wasn’t exactly cheap. 😉

Also, I am aware of a display issue causing horizontal scrolling on this Odd Interlude page. I’ve notified my developers to see if they can isolate and fix the issue.

The Reflector Winter 1966-67

There will be no update next week as I’ll be spending this week in Las Vegas at the Consumer Electronics Show. As a result, I tried to have more than what’s been typical lately posted this week.
