Just found this in Marseille, France:

"Cinemateaser" magazine #23, in French, with a "Star Trek Into Darkness" article, pp. 66-73. The alternate cover features Chris Pine as Kirk.

Re: Latest acquisition!

Just back from my UK/France trip and what a haul awaiting me at Kings Comics, plus some boxes that arrived from Amazon:


New Star Trek publications, 2013 by Therin of Andor, on Flickr

Depicted with my Andorian sock monkey and all-new retro-Mego Borg action figure are: three recent IDW trade collections of comics, another IDW reprint collection in the large-format "Treasury" edition, the Sean Kenney memoir (Outskirts Press), the beautiful hardcover "TNG Classic Quotes" and, from Running Press, a mini book on "Phasers" that comes in a box with a miniature plastic TOS phaser.

And tonight... it's the World Premiere of "Star Trek Into Darkness"!

Re: Latest acquisition!

I forgot to mention that picked up SFX's Trek issue for my Nook a couple weeks ago. I didn't realize until I started reading it that it was British. I don't mind at all, it just kind of confused me for a moment when they started using Britishisms and swearing.

The other day I found a very good copy of the Goldstein Spaceflight Chronology for only $10 at Half-Price Books! Score.

Re: Latest acquisition!

Managed to get Jeff Mariotte's The Folded World at Chapters a full week before the "release date." A few chapters in, and enjoying it for the most part.

My copy arrived in the city on Wednesday (Tuesday - who knows? Jetlag?), but I was... otherwise engaged at a certain gala premiere a few blocks away.

^ Iron Man 3 then?

Oh you meant into Darkness. Did you see it then or just hang out waiting for people to arrive on the red carpet?

Lucky bum! *shakes fist*

Seriously though, quite envious. I have my ticket in hand, but still a few weeks away from seeing it!

We actually got to walk down the red carpet before seeing the movie. The team from Paramount had constructed corridors from the Enterprise for us to walk through. A great experience, seeing Therin sitting in the Enterprise Brig was hilarious.

I was looking for the label, "Do not flush while in Spacedock." (ST V).

Thanks for breaking me out, mate!

Re: Latest acquisition!

I picked up the hardcover version of books 1-4 in the "New Frontier" series at a used bookstore last Saturday for $4. Of course, I could tell that someone had bought it over in Britain and brought it too Canada because of the Simon & Schuster sticker on the back cover with 9.99 pounds (and the "L" shaped pound symbol).
