KIM CURRAN & BRYONY PEARCE at FORBIDDEN PLANET
Diary Date: Thursday 25th July 6 – 7pm

Forbidden Planet is pleased to announce a double signing by Kim Curran and Bryony Pearce for their new titles Control and The Weight of Souls (Strange Chemistry) at Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London SE1 0UP on Thursday 25th July from 6 – 7pm.

In Control, Scott Tyler is not like other teenagers. With a single thought he can alter reality around him. And he can stop anyone else from doing the same. That’s why he’s so important to ARES, the secret government agency that regulates other kids like him: Shifters.

They’ve sent him on a mission. To track down the enigmatic Frank Anderson. An ex-Shifter who runs a project for unusual kids – as if the ability to change your every decision wasn’t unusual enough. But Anderson and the kids have a dark secret. One that Scott is determined to discover.

In Bryony Pearce’s The Weight Of Souls, sixteen year old Taylor Oh is cursed: if she is touched by the ghost of a murder victim then they pass a mark beneath her skin. She has three weeks to find their murderer and pass the mark to them – letting justice take place and sending them into the Darkness. And if she doesn’t make it in time? The Darkness will come for her…

Forbidden Planet is the largest store of its kind in the world. Some of the biggest names in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics and Cult Entertainment have come to our London Megastore for signing events, including: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Terry Gilliam, Simon Pegg, William Gibson, Mark Millar, Guillermo Del Toro, Brian Froud and Stephen King.

JENNY COLGAN SIGNING DOCTOR WHO: HARVEST OF TIME
FORBIDDEN PLANET LONDON TUESDAY 16th JULY 6 – 7pm

JENNY COLGAN will be signing DOCTOR WHO: DARK HORIZONS at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Tueday 16th July from 6 -7pm.

 “We need to reach out. We need to continue the line...”

On a windswept northern shore, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. Then the burning comes. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything in its path - yet the burned still speak. The Doctor encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. They have no weapons, no strategy and no protection against a fire sent to engulf them all. The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology; but at least they have the Doctor on their side... Don’t they?

Jenny Colgan has written thirteen bestselling novels, which have sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide. Jenny won the 2013 ‘Romantic Novel of the Year’ Award, the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s (RNA) highest accolade, for her romantic comedy novel, Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop of Dreams. Aged 11, she won a national fan competition to meet the Doctor and was mistaken for a boy by Peter Davison.

News / Avoid @fiverr - new bug: taking money, no service.
« Last post by Decato on July 01, 2013, 07:16:42 AM »
Heads-up to anyone buying or selling on Fiverr at the moment. They're taking your money, but a bug in their new-look site means orders are not being created after they've got your $ from Paypal, orders just vanish - looks like data is being passed blank between Paypal/Fiverr. Sellers are reporting no customers and Buyers are reporting vaporized orders.

See support boards at http://forum.fiverr.com/discussion/11152/a-fiverr-sales-dropping-in-beginning-of-summer and http://forum.fiverr.com/discussion/11105/i-paid-but-i-can-not-find-my-order-liste

EDGAR WRIGHT AND THE WORLD’S END FREE POSTER GIVE-AWAY!

FORBIDDEN PLANET LONDON THURSDAY 23rd JULY 5 – 5:30pm

Forbidden Planet are delighted to welcome EDGAR WRIGHT, signing free give-away posters for THE WORLD’S END at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR.

Twenty years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by Gary King (Simon Pegg), a forty-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.

Edgar Wright is a genre-smashing creator, a film and television director and writer. He worked with Simon Pegg, Nira Park and Nick Frost on the films Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the TV series Spaced, the upcoming 2013 film The World's End, and he directed the film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. He co-wrote Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin with Joe Cornish and Steven Moffat. He will also direct a film adaptation of the Marvel Comics superhero Ant-Man.

Please note that posters will be limited to one per person.
