Hassel & Kessler

Found these on holiday lurking in a box of cheap war books. I love the title Liquidate Paris - it kind of has a contemporary feel.

Bloody Hell

Jesus- that was one of the best Test Matches I've ever seen. Goodnight Australia.

Saw Constantine the other night - thought it was pretty damn good. I never read Hellblazer, so I have no idea how it fared in comparison.
Keanu is great, and he smokes cigs really well.

Elizabeth Sladen

Apparently Sarah Jane Smith is going to be in an episode of the next series of Doctor Who.
Cool. I may watch.
She was the only assistant that wore cammo trousers as far as I remember.

Galactic Girl

One of Fiona Richmond's less pretentious earlier works.
The back says: 'In the Moscow Gremlin, archfiend Fatman and his sexy sidekick plot the brothelisation of the universe...'
Chapter 4 is called 'Macabre Knees'.

I Am Legend

As referred to in Kidshirt's blog - the book that inspired the movie The Omega Man. A great book an' all.

Thought For The Day

Just think..if Mama Cass had given Karen Carpenter her chicken sandwich, they might both be alive today.

Barometer World

Shit..all that bad weather down in Devon and we still didn't go to Barometer World. As recommended by Michael Fish.
I sometimes wonder where all the time goes.

Fluid Man, Coil Man & Multi Man

Well, I'm back from a fortnight in Devon where it fucking rained an awful lot. Managed to eat at least one pasty a day plus a great deal of fudge, bacon, cream teas - you name it, we fucking ate it.
Picked up this superb The Impossibles annual along with 150-odd books (watch The List for up and coming sales).
Does anyone else remember The Impossibles? I was beginning to think I had made the whole fucking thing up. Even the guy who sold it to me doesn't remember them - and he was a big Hanna-Barbera fan. I do remember a ground breaking combo in the late '70s called The Fluid Men, but I think they split up due to chemical differences.
Once I dig through my stock I'll post some cool book covers by Moorcock, Hassel, Kessler, plus a rather groovy Fiona Richmond novel.
