Re: Latest acquisition!

Like many people here I bet, my most recent book purchase was The Poisoned Chalice by James Swallow. Already a few pages into it so will see how it goes.

The poisoned chalice. I'm not ready to read it yet. I'm still making my way through the typhoon pact at the moment.

Re: Latest acquisition!

I don't think I knew this was coming:


Mr Spock: Logic and Prosperity Box by Therin of Andor, on Flickr

It has an August 2013 publication date, but stock arrived at Galaxy, Sydney, this week! The little book contains 20 double spread pics of captioned Spock quotes. It slips into a cavity in the thick cardboard stand. Introduction by Steve Mockus, book design by Neil Egan, bust sculpt by Gentle Giant. ISBN 978-1-4521-2450-6

Re: Latest acquisition!

Congratulations to Sydney-based science fiction writer, Edwina Harvey, for her newly-released short story collection, "The Back of the Back of Beyond". Andorian Ambassador Therin and his alter ego (ie. me) make guest appearances in the story "Get Me to the Worldcon on Time", and my dog, Jack, gets a meaty cameos in "Party with My Sweet 286".

Available through peggybrightbooks.com - eBook formats for now, but I have a paperback version coming. Thanks so much Edwina, it looks like wonderful fun and I'm in great cameo company by the look of the honour roll at the back!

Re: Latest acquisition!

At the risk of doing three posts in a row, time is running out for Dayton Ward's "Peaceable Kingdoms" sighting contest. Three more prizes of ten still available:

Re: Latest acquisition!

I found the book of essays, "Fan Phenomena: Star Trek" (Intellect Books, 2013), edited by Bruce E Drushel, tonight. In the same series was "Fan Phenomena: Batman", edited by Liam Burke.

Other books in this series include "Doctor Who" (in stock), "Twin Peaks", "Star Wars" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

I just pre-ordered the 2015 Ships of the Line calendar from Amazon. Anyone know which artists/designers are involved for this edition?
