SCIENCE FICTION BOOKS (5 Boxes) - Box #5 Classic Books

James from Papamoa Beach

I have a large quantity of science fiction books from away back in time (from the 1950s onwards) to dispose of, as I have reached the age and infirmity that requires moving house, with the consequent need for decluttering. I will place the books on Neighbourly as a separate post, box by box (5 boxes at present).
Seeing these well-loved books go, and to a good home where someone can also appreciate and enjoy them, is the objective; the price is of lower consequence.
Box 5 has more than 70 books, many of which became classics, published in the 1950s from upcoming authors; for many this was their first. The other 4 boxes have books by well-known top authors.

Many of the books listed here are no longer in pint.

If messaging or calling please note the storage box number of your interest. Pick-up in Papamoa East.
BOX #5
Softcover classic science fiction; original books. Purchased in the 1950s as they were being issued for the first time. Many were the first offerings of the authors who later became famous because of these and subsequent works.

Many are published by the famous American Ballantine Books and obtained at time of issue. It was difficult to source these in New Zealand at that time..

70 books (approximate number) many in less than pristine condition but all readable
Authors include:
• Chad Oliver
• John Wyndham
• Robert Sheckley
• Ray Bradbury
• Theodore Sturgeon
• Jerry Pournelle
• Frederik Pohl
• Poul Anderson
• William Tenn
• Arthur C Clarke
And many many more
$20 the box. Pick-up and/or view in Papamoa East.

Price: $20

The right strengths for the trades


It takes the right person with the right attitude to succeed in the trades. Someone with grit, determination and endurance. These are the kinds of strengths that women have and that the industry needs.

Like Holly Roberts from Painter Girl & Co in Tauranga – Holly went from 12 years of hospitality as a head chef to her painting and decorating apprenticeship.

If you’re a woman interested in the trades, read how local women are doing it or register for The BCITO & Mitre 10 Building Women night to meet them and employers in person.
