PBA's Sci/Fi, Fantasy, Horror Auction totals $500,000

PBA Galleries (PBA), one of the largest and most successful specialty auction houses in the world, completed an auction of over 400 lots of fine science fiction, fantasy and horror on June 2nd. . The sale featured signed and inscribed copies of major works by Stephen King, Philip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov, Octavia Butler, Frank Herbert, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, and many others.

The auction consisted of mostly signed first editions in exceptional condition. The wonderful examples in original dust jackets were from a single collection with many books rarely seen signed. Several new auction records were achieved during the sale, and when the hammer fell on the final lot, bidding had exceeded the highest estimate.

Samples of high performers include Dune by Herbert Frank ($22,500), The Dark Tower series by Stephen King ($22,500), The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin ($10,000), Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein ($11,250), The Foundation Trilogy by Isaac Asimov ($15,000), and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick ($13,750).

"When we took on this consignment, we knew it was special,” said Bill Taylor, Cataloguer at PBA Galleries. “The consignment included fine examples of numerous high points of sci-fi and fantasy, with original jackets in suburb condition. The vast majority of the books were signed, many being inscribed as well."

PBA recently announced a consignment of over 40,000 comic books. The DC Universe Collection comprises every single DC comic book published for newsstand sale between 1934 and 2014, with auctions scheduled to begin this fall. PBA’s next science fiction auction will be held on Sept. 21, 2023, with additional material from this and other collections. Consignments are now being accepted.
