PAT MILLS and JAMES McKAY will be signing the Graphic Novel FLESH: THE DINO FILES, at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 10th September 1 – 2pm.
 
Think that a meteorite collision with our planet was responsible for making the dinosaurs become extinct? Wrong! By the 23rd Century, man has drained the planet’s resources bare, but thanks to time-travel technology, the Trans-Time Corporation send rangers to the days when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. The rangers round up these magnificent creatures and get real flesh back on the menu!
 
Writer Pat Mills is usually described - quite correctly - as 'the godfather of British comics'.  His work includes the acclaimed Charley's War, Vampire Knight and Marshall Law as well as ABC Warriors, Slaine, Nemesis The Warlock and a host of others for 2000AD.
 
James McKay has been an illustrator for several years, working on creature designs for computer games and the interactive BBC programme, Fightbox. His comics work includes several short stories for various independent publishers and the fantasy series La Cité des Secrets with French publishers Mosquito Editions.  Having been nominated as one of four finalists for the 2010 Arts Fellowship Award, Pat Mills (who was one of the judges) chose to collaborate with James on his return to the Flesh series.
 
 Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror have come to our London Megastore for signings including: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Terry Gilliam, Simon Pegg, William Gibson, Mark Millar, Guillermo Del Toro, Brian Froud and Stephen King.

Feedback / Is the current 'Doctor Who' series running out of steam?
« on: August 29, 2011, 01:37:08 PM »
Viewing figures for Doctor Who have dropped off lately. Let's see if we can find out why.

Have a go at answering the survey. It won't bite you to tick one of the choices or let me know if you want another option added for anything I might have missed.

Doctor Who – Let’s Kill Hitler

   A bit of a misnomer of a story title when it’s really the origin, or part origin, of River Song. I’m being very careful not to give too many spoilers here so come back after you’ve watched the episode for whenever I become too cryptic below. I’m not giving away anything per se about the plot.

   It’s interesting to note that Rory is actually a little younger than Amy when she first knew him and now because of the previous season is actually a couple thousand years older now if you’re keeping count.

   I wonder why the Nazi imposter couldn’t grow its own pair of glasses?

   Since when does the TARDIS have a voice interface? If we’re not careful, the Doctor will be able to fly the TARDIS by remote control.

   As we’re all likely to wonder what the first question was, let’s put my answer into the bowl: Why?

   River Song’s saving of the Doctor looks like a way of giving the Time Lord ten or eleven more regenerations. I wonder if writer Steven Moffat is going to remind us of that later? More so, considering the Doctor knows something of his own fate. There’s a lot of things in this story that could be used to get around that. In a writer’s sense of plot, especially in Science Fiction, to show how to beat the smoking gun and I think it’s tucked away here. Just because you see an event, it doesn’t mean the end result is actually what it seems.

   Alex Kingdom is a scene-stealer with the sexiest voice.

   A great start back into the second part of the 2011 season. A bit odd going to Nazi Germany but neatly avoids asking too many questions. Logistically, it must be one of the points in human history that mustn’t be changed. Does make you wonder how many others there are but considering the number of invasions and so forth that the Doctor circumnavigated makes you wonder how many other points are there really. Of the top of my head, considering the Doctor appears after the hibernation on the Ark does suggest that is another one of them. Put your thinking caps on, folks.

Summer of Steampunk

Longest running steampunk series raises the heat in fortnight-long genre celebration

Break out your top hats and holster your Tesla Mark Seven blunderbuss, the Summer of Steampunk from Abaddon Books is here!


To mark a major new direction for the world’s longest-running series of steampunk novels, Pax Britannia, Abaddon is running two weeks of steampunk shenanigans at the new dedicated Pax Britannia Facebook page.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-steampunk-world-of-Pax-Britannia/206716889374365

From free eBooks and competition giveaways to debate and word from our authors about what makes steampunk so much fun, join us for two weeks of celebration of this most charming, exciting and ever-growing line of books.

The event will culminate in a major announcement about a surprising new book which throws away the rulebook of how genre publishing works.

A must for any fan of steampunk or pulp adventure action, Pax Britannia is set in a radically different version of the late 20th Century where the age of the Victorians never ended and Queen Victoria remains alive thanks to steampunk technology.

From Jonathan Green’s swashbuckling agent of the Empire, Ulysses Quicksilver, to Al Ewing’s ultra-violent El Sombra, Pax Britannia takes steampunk adventure to a new level.

Jonathan Oliver, editor-in-chief of Abaddon Books, said:

“Pax Britannia is one of the longest running steampunk adventures in publishing, and our Summer of Steampunk will bring a host of goodies bound to appeal to new and old readers of the series alike.”

ROBERT RANKIN SIGNING AT FORBIDDEN PLANET
 
Diary Date: Saturday 24th September 1 – 2pm

Forbidden Planet is pleased to announce a signing by best-selling author Robert Rankin for his latest novel The Mechanical Messiah, at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 24th September 1 – 2pm.
 
 Another wild and wacky adventure from the Master of Far Fetched Fiction!
 
 Robert Rankin is one of the great British eccentrics, standing alongside Viv Stanshall, Spike Milligan and Neil Innes, amongst others. 'To call Rankin irreverent doesn't begin to describe just how very good he is at playing with the rules', says the MIRROR, while THE DAILY EXPRESS says: 'Everybody should read at least one Robert Rankin in their life' - and it's right. THE INDEPENDENT maintains: 'He is an author best read in large doses. His impressively individual style means that he becomes funnier the more you read him', THE OBSERVER admires ' the stark raving genius of Rankin . . . the plot comes together with alarming and deformed brilliance' and the MAIL ON SUNDAY claims 'Rankin does for England what Spike Milligan does for Ireland. There can be no higher praise'. MAXIM calls him 'Fiendishly clever and joyously funny . . . a brilliant imagination', and SFX think he's 'Oscar Wilde meets Kurt Vonnegut in the genetics lab of classic fantasy humour'. The newest opus from the Master of Far Fetched Fiction will enhance his reputation even further: it's time to stop Rankin being a hidden gem and make him the National Treasure his fans already believe him to be.
 
 Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror have come to our London Megastore for signings including: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Terry Gilliam, Simon Pegg, William Gibson, Mark Millar, Guillermo Del Toro, Brian Froud and Stephen King.

Actor James Marsters Joins Vampire Empire Authors

for DragonCon Special Event
 
Amherst, NY—Actor James Marsters—best known for his iconic role as “Spike” in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel and familiar to genre fans for his roles in Torchwood and Smallville, among others—has signed on to narrate the Vampire Empire trilogy for the unabridged audio books being produced by Buzzy Multimedia for release in spring 2012. In support of this new collaboration, Marsters has announced a very special reading event for fans at DragonCon in Atlanta, GA, on Sunday, September 4that 7:00 pm (ET).
 
This ticketed, limited-seating event will open with authors Clay and Susan Griffith introducing the Vampire Empire series—providing an overview of the characters, the setting, and the themes. For the bulk of the event, Marsters will read from The Greyfriar (Vampire Empire, Book One). After his reading, Marsters will join the Griffiths for a conversation with the audience. There will be a book-signing and autographing session to close the event, at which copies of The Greyfriar and the newly published book two, The Rift Walker, will be available.

Marsters, acclaimed for audio work that includes being the voice of Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files, is ideal casting for The Greyfriar,called “so much more than a vampire novel,” by BN.com and “phenomenal . . . from start to finish” with “amazing vampire mythology, a chilling alternate history, and a poignant romance that grips your whole heart and refuses to let go,” by All Things Urban Fantasy.

Feedback / So how would you describe the atypical SF fan?
« on: August 06, 2011, 12:53:24 PM »
Hello everyone

I was tempted to do this as a poll but as I'm also supposed to be encouraging you folk to write, let's see what you think first before I segregate into some sort of divisions.

To my mind I don't think there is an atypical SF fan. Like in other media, we have extremes right down to commonplace. So let's take a different tactic. Can you pick out an SF fan from a crowd, assuming they aren't wearing a Trek, SG-1, etc uniform and if so what gives us away??

Don't be afraid to write.

Geoff
