Kate Moss

I feel incredibly betrayed - it seems Heroin Chic was just Cocaine Chic all along.

Science Fiction Fluff #03

Best I could do on the Diver / Octopus theme I'm afraid. Still, there's fucking nothing wrong with Lynda Carter in her underwater gear.

Octopus 666

Seeing as Kek-W's going on about Octopi & Squids & Divers over on Kidshirt - I though I'd join in. Don't know the artist on the Wheatley cover - feel free to enlighten me if you know - but it's a classic...
(Cover art by S R Boldero - Thanks JC).

..And a James Bama Octopus classic to go with it.

Just Slightly Pissed

'Where Were You' by The Mekons. Best love song ever written.

Science Fiction Fluff #02

I always had a thing for Deanna Lund in Land Of The Giants, even though she was so small. Even the picture's small. And she was a darn sight sexier than the chick in Lost (Has anything happened in that badly written, dull, cliche-ridden cack yet?) .

Zardoz Book Fair

Always worth showing up to. They're lucky anybody goes - they never update their website. It's still advertising a bookfair in 2003.

Science Fiction Fluff #01

First in an occasional series of Science Fiction Fluff Off The Telly. Gabrielle Drake was always my favourite purple-haired, moon-based girl.

The Ashes

I will never again slag off Kevin Pietersen. Fucking good day at the office.

Went to the second Book Palace Pulp Book Fair today, after surviving the trauma of the first Sunday AM show which the BBC kindly scheduled me to launch. The whole thing twisted my melon quite badly and I'm doing it for the next five fucking weeks. Still - met Kevin Spacey, so it wasn't all nightmares and bad karma (man, he's suave).
Picked up some gems, such as The Blood Countess, the only Avenger book I was missing...

..and this..Mox - a particularly sinister Shadow book with a Jim Steranko cover..

..and this - Doc Savage twats the Ruskies...

Back To The Future

Bored with the cricket this afternoon, I went 50 years into the future.
Everything's exactly the same as now - except that disposable razors have 10 blades.

Alicia Silverstone

Just so it's clear I'm equally a fan of this Batgirl, even though she was in one of the shittest films ever and it ruined a promising career.

Adios Den

In a weird twist of strangeness, I got a package from Den this morning containing this tape. Den's moving to Oz (the country not the HBO prison), in fact he may have already gone.
We did beer a couple of weeks ago and The Impossibles was never mentioned. In our 18 year friendship The Impossibles was never mentioned.
And yet he saw fit to give this Uber-Obscure tape a home with me.
It's all very sub-conscious.
Good luck Den, old boy.

Scanner Art

Well, I am.

Yvonne Craig

Gratuitous picture of Batgirl.

Kenneth Bulmer

The sequel to Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea. Cover by Brian Lewis, who did some great stuff for Digit Books.

The Weight Of Responsibility

Was working Newsnight a few days ago and The Presenter came in and asked me for a pen (this happens alot - I shift more than my own body weight in pens every month as news presenters don't seem to own them).
I handed him the pen.
He said: 'When I was a correspondant I had a pen, a pad, a flak jacket. I often carried the camera tripod. Now I'm a presenter I just carry a fucking comb.'
