Hi there,

I have decided to dispose of my extensive collection of Fortean Times Magazines. I have Issues 54-56, 58-347. I have simply run out of room to keep them now, and rather than dispose of them, list them on eBay until I find a buyer etc, it would be better to come here to offer them to anyone prepared to take them from me - since this is a Fortean board, I would happily give them to anyone willing to come and pick them up, knowing they will be enjoyed.

This is my personal collection, pieced together by me from my early teens to my just-about-to-turn 40 self. I have enjoyed them very much over the years, and as a result many of the issues come in a 'well read' state - a tiny number with detached covers - more so with minor rips, plenty of wear and the like - but all of the issues are readable. This is a 'read' collection and not a smashed one! The articles and contents are all in more than readable state.

There are a few doubles of the earlier editions - 60's and 70's mainly.

Available to a loving owner, looking to create an instant collection. Just drop me a PM if you are interested and I can provide address details and such - in terms of general location it will involve a trip to the south coast of England.

Pity I live in Australia (the heat, the humidity, idiot politicians, etc) - otherwise I'd happily take them off your hands, and give you fancy chocolate in return!

PM sent, I'm on the South coast and I'm trying to build an FT archive in my library, I love going through old back issues for research and reading the letter section.

I tried this nearly two years ago, but presumably logistics and simple lack of interest at the time resulted in no takers.

So - the offer is there again. Free to a good home - all issues 54-56, 58-371 (at least, it will be 371 shortly!) to anyone willing to come and pick them up - and provide their own boxes. As you can appreciate it's a LOT of magazines - 317 out of 371 published magazines is not a bad start!

Wow, I'd be there like a shot if I had the chance. What are the rest of you doing?

Hi, if you still have your collection available I only live in Bournemouth and would gladly collect these from you as you have several that I need.
Please let me know if you still have them going and we can arrange a collection time.
Thanks

Hi Rob, yes they are still very much available in their entirety.

Happy to talk about collection and provide you with my address via PM. Just drop me a message. I keep them all in a single storage box which I will be keeping, so you will need to take some boxes or bags - or I'll simply carry them out to your boot.
