    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!

    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?

    I'm not sure exactly when in 2013 this came out, but the omnibus of "Kevin Keller: Drive Me Crazy", featuring the George Takei guest appearance in issue #6 ("By George!" by Dan Parent) of this "Archie" spin-off, was available in a local comic store this week:

    George Takei supplies an introduction. There are also three more non-George stories and bonus features.

    The alternate covers (below) for the individual issues are included in the omnibus:

    "Captain, the tricorder identifies the alien as a sitting duck."

    "No Time Like the Past" by Greg Cox arrived Down Under on Tuesday! I collected my copy tonight from Galaxy Bookshop, Sydney.

    What happened to Spock's legs? Quicksand? Transporter mishap?

    Deep foliage?

    Or drunk. In Australia, a drunk person is often described as "legless". (Which causes some interesting comments about Legolas, too. The "party elf".)

    This is the latest in the series of Diamond Select money boxes.

    Spock's legs? Judging by the bloated yet satisfied expression on the duck's face, I imagine possibly it's eaten them. This might fit with the perturbed, slightly pained (meaning deep agony, because this is Spock), yet scientifically curious expression on Spock's face. And the tense, ready-for-action stance of the Andorian (Therin?), who is clearly reaching for his phaser.

    "A strictly carnivorous duck. Fascinating..."

    Then again, if I recall correctly, this duck was raised in a factory by alligators, yes? I imagine it's picked up some unusual habits.

    Tonight, Galaxy in Sydney had the companion book/box for the Running Press "Light-up Phaser". This one is a light-up "Starship Enterprise" and features a model of the TOS ship on a stand, plus a miniature 32-page illustrated book by Chip Carter. It even references TAS's Robert April!

    This looks really awesome with the lights on. I was very pleasantly surprised by how bright it is!
