By the way you asked if I got my contributor's copy. I did (thank you very much Maestro!) & replied via email (not Horizon PM) - did that get thru to you?

(One is never sure if anyone's email address might be old/defunct.....)

Blake's 7: A Critical Guide to Series 1-4
By Rodney Marshall
Paperback: £11.99 (excl. VAT)
Prints in 3-5 business days

Political satire, comic strip action adventure, science fiction, space opera, Orwellian dystopia, costume drama, Western...Drawing on a range of genres, Terry Nation’s Blake’s 7 resists categorisation or labelling; a ground-breaking piece of television drama. Presenting itself as easy-viewing, early evening entertainment for a (largely) teenage audience – which, on one level, it was – it tackles state-surveillance, propaganda, corruption, genocide, revolution, and terrorism. Avengers expert Rodney Marshall turns his attention to Blake’s 7, offering unauthorised, entertaining, thought-provoking critical guides to all fifty-two episodes in Series 1-4. Horizon (the official Blake’s 7 fan club moderator Alex Pinfold has added a Foreword to this third edition, while television historian Matthew Lee has penned an essay on Terry Nation and Blake’s 7. Combining dark humour, surrealism, shiny surfaces and dramatic depth, Blake’s 7 blurs the boundary between hero/villain. Unsure

I've bought a copy of the Star One Compendium and really enjoyed it. Yes there are some rough edges and errors (both factual and typographical) but as the editor writes in his foreword he chose "to leave the material as is - warts and all". Worth a look in my view.

Just to let you all know the Compendium is still available to purchase...

Hi all. Just thought I'd check int to see if there's been any posts on this thread.

Was wondering if any of you who had purchased a copy of the "Compendium" would be interested in doing a review of the book for the Pencil Tip website?

If so, please get in touch with me at penciltippublishing @ shaw . ca.
