Editor: David Britton
Editorial Chutzpah: Michael Butterworth
Vol. 60, No. 215
298mm x 210mm
|The Manchester issue of New Worlds magazine, subtitled the 'Crucified Toad edition'. Published in Spring 1979 as a limited edition of 1,000
copies, at a time when the magazine had ceased its run of ten
issues as a mass-market paperback and was appearing sporadically
in semi-underground form. This 'Savoy Good Taste issue' featured
all the usual suspects in and out of the Savoy office at the time:
essays from M John Harrison and Michael Butterworth, Michael Moorcock on Harlan Ellison, illustration by Savoy's Liverpool shop manager John Mottershead and Heathcote Williams acting as science correspondent with an essay on Kirlian photography.
Edited by Britton and Butterworth. The PJ Proby quote on the back cover encapsulates an entire philosophy: 'I am an artist and should be exempt from shit.'
Cover by Roland Cat.
